Does anyone know if you can put a Diff Breather on a 2015 Jeep Cherokee TH? I don't plan to do water crossings but I would rather be safe than sorry.

WOW! Did you fill it with milk instead of gear oil?

To OP: Use a piece of fuel line to get it extended up as high as possible and put a filter on the end. Remember that the trans, transfer case and front differential all have breathers as well. The best advice is do not take your rig for a swim! I avoid deep water and walk all water crossings before entering with my rig.

I saw on Facebook if you fill the diff with 2% low fat milk and run it 100 miles it flushes the gears and bearings!

I installed an ARB breather on my old 4runner. My stock breather got plugged up and blew my seals. Never again. I have to install a breather on my new rig though.

Everything actually survived my little diff ordeal. The jeep drove from Alabama to Adirondack State Park in New York like that, I'm surprised everything didn't burn up

That’s awesome that your rig survived that. Really shows you these rigs are built tough. My old rig went into the shop for a $1000.00 fix it operation.

This is definitely one of the modifications on my new axles before I play! Should have my Cherokee on the road soon.. Benz.
