that is the 4wd actuator, its a vacuum operated fork that connects the axle shafts when you put the transfer case in 4wd, those wires are what turn your 4wd indicator light on, for some reason those 4 bolts on it come loose, also it is exposed to all kinds of shit, you may need a new gasket or put some sylicone gasket maker on it, and tighten those bolts, i think they are 3/8 or 10mm
