Question What is this hose/tube?

I was repairing and tuning up some minor issues in my truck then noticed the hose in the picture I have attached was not plugged into anything. It is not in my repair manual nor can I find any information. Do you know what this goes to?

Thank you for helping!

First of all, that is a very clean looking engine compartment, specially for an 8yo truck. I don't ever recall seeing anything like that, so I went out and looked on mine and I don't see anything like that tube. It looks like some type of breather tube, but to what? Did you trace the tube down? There's a couple of vacuum solenoids right there, and the cruise control is right under that tube, at least in mine. When you find out, let me know.

Default Tube

When I was repairing my vacuum hoses, I noticed that the tube was unplugged. Once I get some time to get under the hood again I will try to find any lose ends. Thanks for the reply.

If you have a 4x4 it looks like the front diff vent.

Default Found the Solution

After looking around, I noticed that it was a vent tube for the transfer case. Thank you for jokes and helping me narrow down the answer!
