Vent for the transfer case
Correct, or for the front diff. There should be a plastic cap on the end to prevent debris and water from entering the transfercase/front diff.

there should also be a little metal clip to position the tube in so it sits vertical facing up. The black plastic breath cap sits on top

Looks too thick for a diff breather vent, certainly dosen't look like mine which is thinner and has a plastic tip and cap, suspect it could be the compressor air hose inlet which is normally attached to the side of the air box??

@seafarer28 Yes, I saw the clips on the side of the RHS air box... Or are you talking about the tube inlet to the airbox, the one with the green collar?


I think it may be the tube highlighted in red on this Google Image search, still not sure what it is though?

Yes, the clips you mention are to hold the diffs breather pipe the same pipe you show in your new pics, without checking I did not think the end of the tube had a metal collar.

I thought what you were holding is the pipe (without the green collar on) which fits in side of the airbox (relying on memory here), do you have that one fitted?

Getting dark here now so can't check on mine but can do tommorow if you need.

Some hints here. There are two breathers there.

Thanks guys. So it seems to be a breather of sorts, in any case I'm missing the cap. Will try to source one.
