The much larger radiator fans which aren't in the picture will push the air from those fans out of the back of the engine area

Vent hole...when you TIG, gasses build up and need to expand...either they blow out the weld or they vent somewhere else...hence the hole.

you can't see it in that picture but the front of that particular tube got a 2" .120 reinforcement tube welded on to help with dents from the rocks.... Since it was completely welded to the axle housing it needed to breath, while the reinforcement was added.... then the hole was filled and we dodged a blowout....

On another note, those tubes aren't necessarily meant to be an axle housing truss, but only to protect the steering ram shaft.... We decided to make it easily "replaceable" instead of bomb proof which would add mucho weight....
