Could someone tell me what line this is, it has a leak... pics!
 
I have a leak coming from my rear drivers side wheel well, I pulled the splash plate back to show you what i'm talking about, could this be a breather hose?

I cant tell where it goes my gas tank is in the way, it does smell like arse, I thought it was a breather for my diff but wasn't 100% on that, I flushed mine last year and, I had the nozzle all the way in the hole of my diff and it started gushing out of my breather all over the place:doh: but that was last year why would it be leaking now?

Looks like the breather tube for you differentail. If its leaking out the top you either have a ton of water in your diff or you rolled your rig.

X3 on the diff breather hose. The little white cap thingy (official term) on the end of your hose is only used on the diff breathers.

Why is it leaking now? For some reason there is too much fluid (gear oil, water, butthole prankster) in your diff OR your gears are getting ready to go south and generating too much heat. The heat would cause the fluid to expand/vaporize and leak out the breather.
