Rear End Vent Tube

Where are you guys extending your vent tubes to? I have been going threw some pretty nasty stuff lately and I would like to extend it to somewhere but dont really have an idea of where to extend it to. Anyone got any input or pics?

Most people extend it up to near the fuel filler tube. Anything higher is kindof pointless. If you get water that high water in your rear end will be the least of your worries at that point

Ok, thats kinda where I was thinking of extending it to. What happened was I was playing and got my back drivers side down on a big rut full of water. Water was near that side of the frame where the vent tube end is.

So, if I extend the tube up there, shouldnt I kinda a bend it down so water wont want to go into it?

That's what I did. Just ran it as high as I could and turned it down.

K, I need to go get me some tubing then. I would think just really any kind of tubing from the auto parts store would do.

I've got mine currently routed into one of the bed crossmembers. But plan on zip tieing it to the fuel fillter vent tube. The Tcase and the front axle vents I plan on extended into the engine bay right next to the power brake booster/master cyl area.

That sounds like a good idea for up front. I still haven't extended those, just got them as high as I could.
