Random hose under my jeep?

So yesterday when my dad and i were changing a leaf spring, i noticed there was a hose that wasn't connected to anything. I looked for 15 minutes but couldn't find anything that it would connect to. So I'm posting a pic hoping that someone knows where it goes. It's on the front drivers side.

If its hanging its gotta be connected to something. trace it back up into engine compartment. I would not be surprised if it was connected to radiator overflow tank.
You have a lot of rust under there........I suggest spraying every bolt you can find underneath with some WD-40 or something

Yeah i do have a rust issue with the underpart of it... i don't think the guy that we bought it from washed it once in the 15 years he owned it. This summer I'm going to try removing the motor, body and cleaning off all the rust and spraying it with some anti rust paint or something. That's the plan, don't know if it will happen but something needs to be done soon before it starts rusting through. But thanks, I'll trade it back up and see if i can find where it's coming from

It looks like it could be the axle vent hose that cam off the axle. If it is this the other end should be on the drivers side of the radiator with a little white plastic piece in the end.

Ok I'll have my dad check that out as well. And I just thought of something, I don't know if it will help, but my jeep has always made a sort of whistle noise. It gets louder as i give it more gas and quieter as i let off the gas. Could that hose be the cause of it?

looks like an axle vent hose to me. it goes in on the top right side of the pumpkin, on the driveshaft side. wouldnt cause the whistling you're talking about. look for a leak around the air intake for your whistle.
