yep check the cabin air filter. a mouse or something may have crawled in there somehow and died in the blower motor assembly. Take the glove box off it is directly behind there.

check these things

engine airbox = mouse nest
cabin air = dead things/nests (from the engine bay/plastic cover at windshield, pull it
air conditioning = mold or rot from clogged or poor drainage
air conditioning = clogged...under passenger carpet wet
rear carpet wet = interior leak

I was also thinking this.


Check your entire exhaust if you find nothing around the filter(s).

Plastic bag stuck to exhaust?

Or maybe your passenger seat from a recent date?

Take a bath, this time use some soap.
Just kidding, did you by chance spill something in the truck?
Sometimes just our own body sweat can get into the seat fabric which can cause smells.
