What are people doing to vent the rear axle housing? Do you just use the OE ford vent w/cap?

I thought I read somewhere that you should remove the cap and attach a hose to the standard vent nipple?

Any benefits/drawbacks to the OE piece? or the hose solution?

Unless the vent interferes with the 3-link, I don't think you need to change from the stock vent. Mine was close but fit fine. Have not heard of any drawbacks to using the stock piece.

Stock is a short plastic nipple that a rubber hose attaches to. I managed to break mine. As it turns out, a short piece of brake line fits right in there afirly snug. Then I slipped a rubber hose over that. Not noticable drips in 6K miles.
