Extending axle breather tube

Any idea on tube type, size etc?

I was on a "technical" 2wd trial the other night and had the breather tube retaining clip pop off from its location. I figure this would be a result of the lift and rear axle articulation.

As as the topic says.....^

i used air hose on mine. and ran it up to the battery. I actually ended up shortning my breather tube for the tranny so that the curve with th extened hose would be so sharp.

I also extended the rear diff up to the driverside tail light.
