    Found this online:

    Seems the modification is less about the vehicle, and more about the 4.7L engine. For those of us who are just hearing about this PCV valve relocation kit, knowing the TSB number, or the kit part number would be a great help. Perhaps I can find out something from my local Dodge parts guy tomorrow, in the way of a part number and price.

    For Corjunk, when I was modifying my intake system (http://www.dodgetrucks.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=79449)
    I found I could only access the PCV hose connection at the rear of the intake manifold by reaching behind the manifold from the driver's side. Most of the PCV hose run is hard plastic, but it's plain old rubber hose where it connects to the manifold. The rubber hose connection on the rear of the manifold points horizontally toward the passenger side (on my 2004's stock manifold, anyway). It's kinda tight between the manifold and the firewall, but can be done. Once you get the hose off the manifold fitting, you can compare the size of the hose from the kit, with the existing hose, and figure what it will take to hook it up.

    The PCV valve is located on the oil filler tube . Two locating tabs are located on the side of the valve. These 2 tabs fit into a cam lock in the oil filler tube. An o-ring seals the valve to the filler tube. Removal: Disconnect PCV line/hose by disconnecting rubber hose at PCV valve fitting. Remove PCV valve at oil filler tube by rotating PCV valve downward (counter-clockwise) until locating tabs have been freed at cam lock. After tabs have cleared, pull valve straight out from filler tube. To prevent damage to PCV valve locating tabs, valve must be pointed downward for removal. Do not force valve from oil filler tube. After valve is removed, check condition of valve o-ring.
