I want to make some extended vent tubes for the rear and front diff, tranny, and anything else that doesn't already have one that goes up as high as the engine or higher. The last 4x4 i had that saw lots of water and mud didn't have anything like that,and i replaced a tranny that had a mix of some dirt/water/tranny fluid, and the rear diff developed a leak, and when drained to fill with new oil the stuff that came out was just nasty. Someone told me that the Rubicon wranglers come like this, and i want to build the same for my 93 cherokee.

Has anybody done this already? I could use some suggestions on how to do it as well as what all would need modification and where i could find everything.

get some rubber hose sized to fit over the short metal/plastic vents that are already there. Then attach it to the body/frame so that it doesn't get snagged and ripped off. My 85 Cherokee has extended tubes with plastic caps on the front and rear diff, you might be able to get them from a junk yard.

Here is a link to an offsite writeup that might help.
