    So I bought an ARB Diff Breather kit and was all set to do front and rear.
    Then, In my research, I found folks that say the front isn't necessarily bc it is already up in the engine bay.

    What about the caps though? Are they the 1-way caps? So if you go through water and the diff contracts, these close up and water gets sucked in through the axles?

    The oem are 2 way.Engine bay breathers are pretty high up. You can do the engine bay breathers and extend/relocate, but if you are getting into any water that high I would be more worried about other things sucking in water.
