There have been issues with people having sediment in their fuel tanks with out much mileage on the rig.. one culprit is the tank vent line that vents into the frame... If you get into deep water, or ride exceptionally dusty roads, there is the potential to get water/dirt in your tank, causing your primary filter to clog.. extending the vent and adding a small air filter to it just lessens the odds.. the rear Diff vent is really poor, its maybe 10 inches above the diff.. so NOT so deep water and lots of dust will easily be able to contaminate your rear diff... another easy and cheap precautionary mod that can add longevity to the life of your rear diff. I'll try and take a picture of how I ran my rear diff vent when I get home today and post it up. I drilled a small hole next to my rear driver seat belt bracket and pushed the vent through, then added the filter, only way the rear diff is gonna get water in it now is if there is water in the back seat!
Hope this helps answer your question.. Its all about preventative measures and minimal cost.
