    where does it connect, i cant for the life of me find where it may have come from, does it just connect to keep out of the way or what?

    Just runs up & clamps to frame. Should have a plastic cap (upper end) that also serves as a check valve. 4X CRAZY mentioned extending it to a higher point to keep (oepn) end out of mud/water.

    sometimes they clamped directly to underside of the bed floor and sometimes they connected to crossmember or frame rail, all depends on year and model and such

    it doesnt matter where its clamped to, as long as water wont get it, make it longer and run it up your bedside and a stake pocket if youre gonna run in several feeet of water like through the creek or anything like we do around here
