Help! Differential Hose.

I was flagged on the road today and told a hose was hanging from my jeep. It comes out of the front differential and I have no clue where the other end of it goes. I'm new to working on vehicles and need a little help with this one. The Haynes Manual didn't show this hose. Pics of the place where it comes out of the differential and what the loose end look like are posted on my picassa page:

Please help out a newb with little knowledge.

Thanks!

Its just a breather tube. I believe it gets held to the back of the grill with a clamp.

Thanks guys, I replaced the water pump and radiator recently. This guy must have been a casualty of that job. I'll get it straightened up tomorrow!

Would that mess up my 4x4? And what if it doesn't connect at the radiator.

No it's just a tube to relieve pressure build up within the diff. You can relocate it to where ever you like, it does not have to go back to its original location.

If it's not there the problem is water can get it and it doesn't necessarily have to be mounted at the radiator. It should be mounted high up, though. The purpose is to allow the differential to breath. Oil and air inside the case expand as the diff heats up and contract when it cools. If it's mounted too low or somewhere rain can get to it moisture can be introduced and cause major problems. That is how it can affect you.

No, but that's where the OEM put it and that's the position that would work best for you... HTH
