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!
