SOURCE: Hose connection location
If you look under there you should find a steel or plastic line that runs up to a place inside the engine bay.( If it is connected directly to the differential) If it is connected to a box mounted on the right side axle it is part lof your 4x4control and should carry vacuum. With engine running you will hear vacuum leak and easily find connection point.
(but you didn't mention any driveline problem so it's likely the first, which is only a vent line. as long as it is not pointing foreward or straight up it is also ok to just secure it out of the way. (but not where it will become submerged in water etc.

Sounds like you have an exterior tranny cooler it should be mounted near or at the front of the ac condensor which is in front of the radiator.

If your ABS light is on, that could be the problem. I had this break on mine while I was turning, it looks like a really thin hose. If this is the problem, shave the liner back to reveal the two wires, add an extension to the wires and hook them back up and this should fix the problem.

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.
