This is normal but there should be a small plastic valve at the end of hose to keep out foreign debris this, is a ventilation hose to vent the case when submerged in water there should be one on the rear diff transfer case and trans as well, these can be extended higher in vehicle if you want to go thru deeper water.
most 4x4 have these

1997 dodge dakota, cant figure out what the purpose is for a rubber hose that is hanging by the rearend,


If by "rear end" you are referring to the differential housing, many vehicles have a vent hose that allows venting of the differential housing. If the hose comes out of the upper area of the differential and is routed downward, this is most likely what you are seeing.

This is just a breather tube for the differential. It usually runs up and connects to the fender well. you can tie it to anything up high enough.

The hose is likely the differential vent hose. If you get under there and take a look around the rear end you will likely see where it was originally secured.

Hose from the front differential.


This hose you refer to is the breather tube for the differential. It connects to a fitting at the top of the differential housing and runs up the back side of the radiator so you won't run the risk of water entering the differential if you submerge the front axle in water. Reconnect the rubber hose to the fitting on the differentail.
