So there are some camping / fishing spots that I need to cross creeks to get to. Just wondering how much value there is in this?

well you have 33 inches of water fording at stock so it useful because stock is i believe at 18 inches .... so for you i say useful ... so what you dont want it water in your difs because if you do get water in there it can fuck up your difs .... or you have to change the oil all the time after going through water.... i mud in my jeep and i am changing the dif oil every time i go mudding .... always have crap in the difs and if you leave water in your dif and it freezes.... say good buy to your dif ....

definitely worth having either from the factory or done in the driveway with $10 in hose and fittings. Diff needs to "breathe" as temps and pressures change within it. If the breather is too low it can suck water into the housing if you enter water

Can someone post picture or explain a little more about what you're talking about. I'm new to this and it interests me.

They look something like this the blue hose is what your looking at ... But I believe the one on the tremor is black hose

Thank you for the pic. So does our trucks come with this from factory? Im thinking yes because of the water forging level. However based off this thread im not sure.

Where does the tube normal run to/out?

I never knew this was a thing. Im had my ram 1500 in some creek crossing that were close to the doors. Glad i didnt have an issue.

Yes they have them stock on tremor and they run from diff to fender I believe on rear and not sure on front. Easy to trace if you jump under one at dealer.

100% true and when I get a chance I will look for the front one but I wouldn't want to have water up to my doors because you don't know how high that tub is also if water slashes you it can go over the tube ... Your risking it ... Everything could be fine or it couldn't... Better to have it and not need it then need it and not have it
