It just lets air in and out of your diff...

When you are driving the fluid inside gets hot and expands, pushing air out of your diff.

When it cools off, the fluid contracts and air is sucked back in.

If you didnt have it, when the heated up, pressure would build up and could cause the seals to blow out.

Is it run up high so when you go into deep water it helps keep the water out of the diffs? I know it will find it's way in other places though. :(

People often relocate these so they arent as likely to get water, they do the same for the tranny breather.

I'm going to have to find out more about that. As I've said here in Houston it's mud and water. And the water part is just the drive home from work!!!! :rofl:
