It looks like the diff breather tube. But it might be the top end. Did you say one end was already connected to your axle?

If it has been dangling for awhile, check your front diff fluid for water contamination.

Well then that is the end that should be attached on the drivers side (?) of your radiator I believe. Just zip tie it back up there. And as mentioned above, definitely check your front diff fluid for any contamination. It could save you 100's of dollars.
