Noticed this line was loose on my rear end and I’m lost as to what it is or where it goes? Or should go rather. Anything helps!

That is the vent line, it goes up high so water and dirt cant get in -- I like to put a lawn mower fuel filter on the end to keep dirt out

So as long as I just clip it up higher and put a filter on it like you said nothing to be concerned about? I appreciate the response!

Would be good to remove the line at the fitting on the rear end and verify that the fitting is open -- washing the line out with brake cleaner and air would be good also -- it would have had a foam "filter" on the end from the factory

Good for you, we should all learn.
Every differential have a breather tube, even a 4wheeler.

that is the factory barb no filters the angle on the barb when mounted properly is supposed to keep water out

ARB makes some fancy ones
this is stock for most fords
