Question Venting t-cases and Axles

I have seen a few people that have vent extensions on their axles as well as their t-cases and I have some on the way with my coil suspension. I understand the concept but wonder if any of you have suffered the consequences for not having extensions. Does it really have that much of a benefit? I'm all ears......................

RIP MSG Art Lilley, you will never be forgotten...

I learned the hard way with my Chevy Truck. Deep mud/water. When I checked the diff, it ran out the check hole forever. Luckily it didn't ruin anything. Since then, I have routed them high on all my trucks.

I did the T-case on the Sammi yesterday. I'm waiting to do the rear until I get my new shackles installed. I have to see it flex before I run the hose to that one!

vent.....won't go without them.....

Down here we play alot in water so its almost mandatory to vent all the stuff.....
I use 1/2" heater hose and connected both and them routed the hose in the dash through the firewall...(when oil comes out of the dash, its a good indication I'm upside down.....)I did my tranny(did this one when I had it off) and T-case.

Don't forget the shift boots, they suck in water too.....

If you put a trap in the tubing coming out of the axles, etc. when (not IF) you roll over it will be harder for the fluid to leak out.
BTW it's a PIA to get a hose onto the t-case & tranny.
