Snapped Blue Wire?

Recently inherited a 1997 F-250 7.3 4x4 from my father. Everything works fine so far, (had it about a week now) but today while approaching the truck from the front in the parking lot, I noticed a blue coated wire hanging down right behind my front bumper. Must have just happened as it hangs about 4 inches off the ground, so I would have noticed it before.
Seems like it would connect to the inside of the front left tire. On quick inspection, I noticed the front right tire has one as well that IS connected. Not sure if this is something with the 4x4 switch or what since I haven't been able to purchase a maintenance or how-to manual YET. Everything seems to still work fine, although I haven't switched on the 4x4 yet.
Basically, can anyone tell me what this blue coated wire is used for? And would replacing or reconnecting it be fairly easy as I am guessing? Thank you for your help in advance,
