oil coming from vent?

When looking at the engine of my 05 lly i have a tube with a round end which is secured to the driver side wheel well. That tub seems to be letting engine oil out. What is it and why is it doing that? Any ideas?

I was driving it in 4 wheel drive for a few hours. I changed the front diff oil a while back but have not ran it in 4 wheel for any length of time since then.

Thanks! i am guessing it got hot expanded and was over full.
