You can see it on this one. Comes out & makes a 90* turn. http://www.quad4x4.com/cgi-bin/commerce ... &key=11031 . This a 3rd Gen t-case. But now that you know what to look for, it shouldn't be hard to find.


EDIT: Bottom pic, # 8, is the vent tube on your BW44-47 Transfer case. http://www.factorychryslerparts.com/sho ... odelYear=0

There is a gas tank vent for the evap system as well. At least on my '12.

Right up by the engine/transmission. That would be a good one to move, unless you like check engine lights

IMHO, these are some of the easiest but often overlooked mods to make. Most don't realize that until it is too late. I have not extended or relocated the ones for my t-case, fuel tank or manual trans yet either. I have done the axles though. I just used fuel line hose, these for filters at the end https://www.zoro.com/baldwin-filters-fu ... lsrc=aw.ds and just cut off the tip not in use, these to couple the factory hose to the extension hose http://www.marinedepot.com/Two_Little_F ... DQodSxEOqg. Easy peasy. On my must do list for this summer. Fluids used to be cheap---not so much anymore.

Better to have it done & not need it, than to need it & not have it done. Hell, i still don't even have a snorkel. :lol:

Does anyone know if the little mushroom vent cap on the evap line on fuel system is molded into line or is removable. It hard to see and feel up in there. The transmission has a similar vent cap but it goes into soft rubber hose. Different cap than on front end, rear end and transfer case. Thanks

Can you take some pictures of your extensions? This is something I have been putting off and need to get done.

Where did you get the vent caps? How are the vents in the transfer, transmission, and gas tank retained? What size hose did you use? I'm planning on doing this project but haven't got to it yet.

the caps are all the factory ones just relocated, used 3/8" splices on front, rear and transfer case, pull the hose off transmission and put new took about 13' of 3/8 line for all. I used fuel line could use more like vacuum line but I could not find it here in my small town (would have been cheaper). For the evap line I used 5/8 line about 4' had to cut cap off end then slide line on and clamped the put vent camp back in the line under hood. they are all retained by friction the same way they come from factory. hope this helps
