Help! Where is this line connected to?

Can someone tell me where this line to the 4x4 vacuum switch selector is supposed to be connected to?

This is the middle, brownish line shown in the picture. There is approximately 12 inches of vacuum line going toward the center of the console but I can't see where this is supposed to be connected... Do I need to remove part of the air conditioning duct under the dash?
There is a piece of rubber "coupling" at the end of the 12 inches of this line, so I assume there has to be another little hose to connect it to.

That should follow the yellow and green towards the firewall and connect there. Do you have the firewall storage ball connected to the engine? If so you should be able to locate the male end of that line with the engine running

I do have the vacuum ball on the firewall. The piece of vacuum line shown from the vacuum switch does not seem to be long enough to make it through the firewall into the ball... I will need to take a better look tomorrow. I think I hear the vacuum leak somewhere in the middle bottom of the dash but I just can't figure where this vacuum leak is at.

I found the other half of the red vacuum line going to the 4x4 vacuum switch. I connected the line and the vacuum leak is gone. It looks like my 4x4 is actually working but I just don't see any indication on the dash that the 4x4 is engaged... Is there such indicator anywhere?

SWEET. Yes there should be a light, mine worked for two days...... could be bad bulb, could be bad sender, or wiring in between
Have you confirmed 4x4 is engaged, you can try to shift into 4lo, 4lo will only engage when 4x4 is selected

I was able to shift to lo hi with the transmission neutral.
Where on the dash panel is this light? I would change the bulb first to see if that works.

Left side and low on the instrument panel. You should be able to find it shining a flashlight into the front of the panel.
The 4lo confirms it in 4x4. That's good, you've chased the heck out of that vacuum issue
