Braided ground cable (I assume)

I have a braided line/cable under the Jeep. One end is attached to the crossmember, and the other is attached to a bolt in the exhaust system just before the muffler. It broke at the bolt at the crossmember.

I assume this is a ground. So my questions are (a) what does it ground, and (b) how important is it that it gets replaced?

Re: Braided ground cable (I assume)

It's purpose is to ground the exhaust system to prevent the exhaust system from becoming an electrical noise radiator.

If you don't have a 2-way in the vehicle, it's probably not that important.
HELP makes pre-made ground straps for just this purpose.
