a C-clamp zip-tied to your brake line?
no, I wouldn't leave it

unfortunately, I can't really tell what it is holding together.

ill try to get some better pics of it and follow the lines its connected to so i can give more info on it. ive only driven the jeep around the block and up the street to walmart and back so im not really worried about it for now but it is a little disturbing knowing something under my hood is c-clamped and zip tied lol

to me it looks like a vacuum junction that the bottom broke out of and the clamp is holding it all together

I agree it looks like the one Jeep puts on the manifold with one line plugged other going to air cleaner and other going to egr valve right by the c-clamp. It doesn't look exactly like the one that came on my Jeep but I'm wondering if they found one on another vehicle and used it and that's why they used c-clamp to keep it mounted????
