What IS This?!

I found this hose not connected to anything on one end and the other end was bolted up next to the radiator, but it wasn't connected to anything. Any idea what it is and where the other end should be connected???

Yes. What they all said. I just unbolted mine last night when I removed the radiator. I traced it to see what it was.

Why not the blinker fluid container? You can get that mpg increase by 5mpg

The vent is just as it states a vent to let pressure and heat release from the axle. If you have diff fluid coming out of the vent then you have a problem...

Either the diff fluid is WAY too full or you turned the axle upside down.

If you off-road much, you'll wanna fix that or your differential may end up filling with water...which would certainly be a bit rough on the gears.
