So I finally got around to doing my rear differential breather. Using the ramps to have my rear ended lifted and having my jack stand to hold part of the driveshaft and the jack to support the differential. Was able to drop my diff just enough to take off the faceplate. I then threaded the existing hole from the OEM breather location and screwed a 1/4 barbed bolt. The bolt part on it was a 14mm if that helps. Once that was done I then started to put it back together. Before lifting the diff I hand tightened the bolt next to the barbs so I was able to fully tighten it. Then got my hose and hose clamp ready and attached that as well before lifting the diff. After that was done I located a hole to feed it through I decided to go with the closest one to the center of the diff which ended up being the left corner of the wheel well. Cut a slit into the rubber grommet and fed the hose through that then popped it back in the existing hole.
