That looks very similar in design to the Apio ones.

Thats really cool mate! When ye can make your own kit for the jimny, or any other car for that matter, it must give you a mighty sense of achievement.

I tip my cap to you matey! They look fit for purpose and are hand made in Britain. Ahhhhh that sounds sweet.

Today I fitted the ARB Breather kit. Easy to install, just a bit time consuming.

Filter manifold cable tied to the brake pipes.


Front and rear breather tubes connected, the other two ports blocked off with the supplied blanks.


ARB filter in place (I have straightened it now :P )


Sorry for the blurred picture. Air hose connectors, thread cut off, drilled and tapped 1/8" BSP to take the ARB push fittings.


Front breather. Rear is similar.


I fitted the breathers whilst on axle stands, and have left some extra loops in the tubing, so hopefully it will never be strained even at full suspension travel.


Hya soeley,

Sorry to be a pain, but things are about to get alot worst, here goes lol....

Those little air hoee connectors you drilled and tapped, i was wondering, how many beer tokens you would require for making me 2 just like yours. I dont have the tools to make it myself, and i really wanna fit the breather kit like you have done.

So was wondering whether this would be possible? Obviosly i would give you adequate coinage (whatever it costs plus your time and skill) etc.. etc. Maybe your too busy etc, so not to worry if you cant.

Its a big ask, and if you tell me to bog off i wouldnt take offense lol.

Andy, Bog Off!


:laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

No, seriously I don't mid doing that for you. I did tweak mine slightly after that installation. I swapped the ARB push fitting for 90o elbow type one on the front as it was hitting the chassis a full articulation. I will have a look in my parts bin to see if I still have any of the airline connectors. Let me look (be Friday) when can have a good root around. and I'll get back to you.
