Default Help Please...What is this??

I'm attaching two pics. We were removing the side step bars, and noticed this wire poece hanging down on the drivers side as if it's disconnected from something. Does anyone know what this may be? Sorry for the crappy quality pics. The farther back pic is to give an idea of the location of the piece hanging. Thank you all in advance. I hope I posted this in the right section!

Looks to me like your parking brake cable. If you follow it back it should tie into another cable and then into the backing plate on each rear brake.
