I am getting ready to install the ARB diff breather kit on my 80 series and just finished watching the OB install video and was wondering why not install the lines on the transmission and the transfer case?

They also don’t seem to have included enough hardware for those parts….should I supply my own from the hardware store?

I got the ARB kit - it had all the parts but the hose was cheap. I ended up buying two unions (one for the rear diff, the other to fit the ARB manifold), and used fuel hose to connect. This made the ARB kit a rather expensive manifold, which I could have sourced elsewhere.

The rear diff breather is lower than the transmission or transfer case breathers, which is why it is more of an issue.

It seems like if you are going to do this mod, the kit should address all the risk points, especially since they talk about it in the install manual. Overall I’m not happy with the kit…like you said, it seems cheap and incomplete
