Looks like the original owner's handiwork.

One main ground from the battery. He probably had some sort of off-road lights or stereo set up and just clipped the wires and took the stuff out before selling the truck.

thats a voltage transfer point or simply a place to connect battery voltage .
Using a 12 volt test light , check to see if you have 12 volts on the right side . Then check to see if you have 12 volts on the cut wires ( left side of picture ) . Keep it, as it can be used to power future components . must have powered something aftermarket ?
Have you owned the truck since new ? Thats not factory .....
Could have powered additional lights ,stereo system etc etc
Forgot to mention that if you test for voltage on the left side and shows 12 volts , at very least put some black electrical tape on the cut wires to avoid cooking your battery
