I've tried all sorta of breathers, OE, an open element right on the axle (this was a test), extended, etc. Never fixed it (both of mine do this).

ARB ended up sending me little adapters so that I could route a blow-off tube under the truck. So now I have a puddle of gear lube under my truck on the garage floor. LOL!

Even with the tubes completely filled they seem to engage alright, so I dunno how much of a problem it is.

You're supposed to route those exhaust lines into a catch can so you don't end up with the puddles on the floor

I actually did that with a little film canister (I might be the only one who even remembers those) and it blew off. That was pretty cool. I was thinking of using one of those oil/air separators for compressors but they're expensive and glass. The annoying part is it seems the lube pushes up the tube even if you don't actuate the lockers, I guess from the thermal cycling of the diffs, so it sort of oozes out all the time. I have the drain tube running inside the fender and pointed down under the firewall, so I get a permanent rocker panel undercoat. :-)

When my 60 started spitting oil out the solenoid valve, I wrapped a rag around it to keep the oil from dripping down the inner fender. Changing the rag once or twice a year was enough to keep things clean.

Mine spews everywhere.... keeps the rust down in that corner of the truck. Funny thing is the front solenoid is not that bad.

I did the extended breather lines a while back hoping to solve some of the issues since I just guessed that the diff being pressurized would force gear oil up the line. I figured extending them would get the gear oily vent out of the dusty underneath of the truck making it less susceptible to crustifying. I never cleaned the lines so I don't know if it helped... I guess i'll blow the lines clean tonight and see if it stays oil free.
