it looks like the hose goes to the spot in the middle of the top photo. I wiggled the hose a little and it came out really easy.

Isnt there some kind of vacuum hose for the automatic hubs on those that leads to the diff? Pay no attention to me if Im way off, not much for knowledge on auto hubs and such.

The vac lines for auto hubs come down from the frame to the brake/hub Assembly i believe. That should be the vent tube the the front end. At the other end there should be a plastic plug looking thing that is a one way valve of sorts.
