Hey guys,
I was wondering if i could get some help identifying this line. I noticed this disconnected line after coming back from ripping around in the snow. Its coming from the back of the front differential, and where it leads to is what my question is. I was using 4 hi and 4 low a lot that day and have a hunch that it has something to do with the engagement of 4 wheel drive. I could be wrong. The other end of the line looks pretty clean ( no signs of anything being broken) and looks as if it snaps into and a female end or some type of housing. I didn't get a chance to get under there and take a look around because I'm away down at school and all the snow and wet weather is making it a little difficult. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Sebass

It's the breather line - the end with the plastic fitting should be up next to your radiator, I believe on the driver's side.

That is your diff breather line, and it basically goes nowhere Mr. Green . Or, more accurately put, it is not connected to anything specific. Just ziptie it in place with the end as high up as you can get it without stretching the line when the suspension bottoms out.

Good to hear that its nothing serious. I wasn't aware that diffs had breathers. Thanks for the help.
