jeep chevy conversion

I have a hose on my transfer case not connected to anything on my YJ. the case is out of a chevy suburban. does anybody know what it is and where is suppose to go to ? It says my photo is to large to upload, but the hose is on the drivers side of transfer case about dead center and about 3" away from where the case connects to my th350 tranny.

The only thing it could be is the vent hose. It should be routed as high as possible, up into the eng compartment and up high on the firewall.

Ok, thanks. if I route it into the engine compartment, should i leave the hose open ended, or put a pvc valve on it or something ??

Leaving it open could be ok, but keep in mind that water, dust, dirt or whatever could go in the hose and travel down into the case. A pcv valve might help act as a check valve but not totally. Best thing is to put the end of the hose somewhere that its not going to take in water, mud, dirt or debris. some people simply put a little filter on the end or run the vent into the air intake tube for the engine.

Probably the front diff vent if the line goes into the center section near the top.
