Oil catch can on 08 Overland

I have a 2008 Overland (5.7L Hemi). I want to install an Oil Catch Can. I have seen some pictures in the forum of where some have installed theirs.
I was wondering if there are any 08 Overland owners out there that have an oil catch can? Where you installed it, and what type of mounting hardware did you use??? A couple of pictures would be great too...

Thanks,
Craig

Re: Oil catch can on 08 Overland

There is a thread that Jan(JDubya) made. He made me my custom bracket that attaches to the strut bar and then you just bolt it down.

Here's the thread!

Re: Oil catch can on 08 Overland

I did mine the same way; cost $1 for the bracket at the hardware store, drilled and cut it, and took about 10 minutes to install everything, oh, and I did not need to use the hose adapter or the 90 degree bend stock piece.

Oil Catch Can installed!

I installed oil catch can two weeks ago and it's working like a champ!! Already have about a tablespoon of oil sitting in it. I really can't believe that nasty dark a$$ oil was going back into my manifold! I'll post some pics of the finished product later tonight.


Thanks all for the great advise!

Craig
