Default Black hose on rear axle (driver's side)

Hi, folks. Saw this—about 1/2" diameter hose— hanging down from where it's connected to the top of the axle near left rear wheel. it's about a foot and a half long. Dumb question, but I don't know what it is or where it's supposed to connect to. Can anyone tell me? Thanks. Gary in St. Paul MN

its the breather tube for the diff, its so that if you submerge your axle it wont flood your axle with water, it should be clipped to the driver side of the frame
