What line is this???

I discovered some residue, which appears to be transmission fluid, on my passengers side wheel well of my 05 4.7L. After digging around, it appears to be coming from a line which runs under the coolant reservoir. I attached some photos. The 3rd photo which shows the line the best, the line with the two white clips holding it down. If anyone can identify the line and a solution for fixing it. Thanks

The braided covered looking line under the breather is electrical stuff I believe. All that leakage and random gunk looks like your diff tube breather spitting up, because mine does that all the time. I have never found out why. Changed the diff fluid and it stopped for a month or so and started back up. It looks just like that.

Yup diff breather. It will mist some oil out if overfilled. I have also read that when some of the compounds in the oil break down it will mist like that.
