Weird air tube under driver seat?

Hey I've searched the web for what this is but to no avail, but there is this air tube that comes out from under the drivers seat on my wj and it looks like you could connect it to another air tube or pump if you wanted. I don't know what it's for, but I'm assuming it is something for the seat? Anybody else have this in their wj?
Here are some pictures of it:

That's definitely custom. Someone probably had an air compressor hooked up in the rear or something to that nature. Where does the other end of the hose go?

Also what is that thing next to it? That's also got to be custom installed, I've never seen anything like it.

Did you buy a WJ that someone already built up some?

Thanks for the reply, after some investigation, it seems as if the tube goes underneath the car towards the engine area:

Here is a pic of the other latch thing, it doesn't go to underneath the car

The car is as stock as a potato as far as I know:

That's odd. I'd locate the other end of that tube

So I tracked it and found that it goes up and across the engine space, and then underneath the battery and connects to a cylinder looking thing Name:  image-2991339850.jpg

I had bought it from a guy that had towed it behind his rv a lot and so I'm now guessing that the rv had an air pump that pumped air whenever it braked and the air would go to a mechanism that was latched to that latch thing and the mechanism would press on the brake pedal.

Vacuum line for a motor home brake pump? The Wrangler I used to have had a vacuum hose run from under the hood to a connector next to the driver's seat that looked a lot like that. Got the Jeep from a relative who towed it behind a motor home.

It could be that, it's definitely something to do with that cylinder brake pump
