Hose hanging out underneath jeep. what is it?

looking at my jeep this morning I noticed there was some sort of hose hanging out from the bottom of it. After a closer inspection I noticed that one end is connected to the top of the axle above the differential cover. The other end is hanging lose above it.

Anyone know what this hose connects to? I don't know that much about engines

Diff vent. One end is supposed to be open, but have a small cap on it.

It is open with what looks like a small cap. There is a metal clip around it as if it was clipped onto the engine somewhere. I'm not sure where it was tho
