95 cherokee dangling hose

I'm a noob here, but I'm trying to help a friend.
This morning I noticed a small diameter (1/4 inch?) rubber hose dangling near the front of her 95 Cherokee. She told me that her thermostat had just been replaced, so maybe it came off during that work.
I got underneath and traced it back to the front axle. It is connected to the "pumpkin" part of the axle/drivetrain (gearbox?). I figured it was probably a vaccuum hose of some sort. I started looking for the nipple it should be connected to and found nothing. Didn't see anything on the air box , brake booster,power steering,etc.
I just secured it up out of the way so it wouldn't drag on the road for now.

Any ideas or links to hose routing diagrams? Again it is a 95 Cherokee.
Thanks

Front differential vent. You want it up so that moisture doesn't get down it. It's usually just clamped near the air filter box.

So the other end doesn't fit over anything? That makes sense. Also, I did see some plastic "hose holder" fittings on the inner wall of the air box. I guess I'll just pop it into one of those.
Thanks for the quick response!!

I drive a VW and have learned a lot from the VW Vortex forums. It's refreshing to visit another vehicle forum that is this helpful.

Thanks again.
