Probably the evaporation canister. For emissions purposes. I think that the evap catch canister is mounted on a cross-memeber above the spare. A friend's F150 is like that. Hose takes vapors back to the can under the bed.

should be a solenoid controlled by ECM to allow vapors stored in the canister, to be burned in the engine. maybe during prior service work someone either forgot or intentionally removed said solenoid?
