Dry rotting and disconnected!

Does anybody know what these lines are in particular? I know the largest one is the main brake line and at least one of these other ones have to be a vaccuum line for the locking hubs. Help please!? Trying to figure out the top one for sure asd its dry rotting and saw it disconnected today.

ing it for you. I've never had any problems with mine so I have never tried to figure them out. I do know that if your hub vaccum line is leaking your air will only blow out the defroster and not the other vents. I think I have that right. Search on it...I'm sure you will find something.

The big one is your brake line, the small black hard plastic line is your vacuum line for your hubs, the other is not a line but a wire for your abs sensor on the hub.

i figured it would be those three, just didnt know which was which. The top line which i guess is the vaccuum line , i found disconnected yesterday. Went to look at it and it started falling apart in my hands at the ends where it connects. I havent had a problem as of yet with my 4wheel drive, but also have not tried it since i noticed this.

I thought the big one was the brake line. The line on top seemed to be just a small rubber tube going from one connection on the hub to where it connects there at the top on the picture. I went to the auto parts store and bought some rubber tubing and replaced it because it was just falling apart.
