    Am looking at this truck, and it has a few things on it I am not sure about. Hoping folks here can identify them b/c it is for sale at a Honda dealer and no one knows what they do.

    One of the pics (top row, far right) shows the engine bay, which looks like it is a) missing the black cover, but no big deal - I'd ask the dealer to cover replacement cost and b) has what looks like (from my searching and reading) a TB spacer....is that what this appears to be? Sorry there isn't a more close up pic.

    Another pic (second row, third from left) shows three buttons and I have no idea what they do...everything appears stock - no amps, subs, lights in cab or on exterior - so not sure what these may do. I know asking what three buttons do with a generic pic of the buttons doesn't give anybody much to go on, but just wondering if there are some common mods that may hook into those.

    If I bought the truck, and assuming those buttons don't do anything super important and assuming disconnecting them wouldn't hurt anything, I'd probably get the a new trim to make it look stock, and ask the dealer to cover the cost of that.

    This truck is at a pretty good price point for the region so I am trying to see if I can figure out what this stuff is, but I wouldn't buy the truck without knowing what has been done. The dealer has the mechanics looking into what it is, but forums usually know 10x what dealers do :)

    Thanks in advance....

    It is missing the cover and yes I would have them replace it. I am not sure what you mean by TB spacer? The three buttons I don't have a clue. It is aftermarket but I dont know to what. It could be bed lights, undercarriage lights? You would have to check out the truck after dark and try the buttons. Sorry I could not help you with that. Good luck and welcome!

    The engine looks funny to me...maybe it's just the cover missing. Also with those miles 22k is way too much....I wouldn't pay more than 18.5 for it

    probably aftermarket lights/winch/whatever the guy before had. he probably sold all his upgrades or moved them over to a new vehicle and returned his to stock minus the buttons, only thing i can think of

    I'm not sure I'd buy a truck that was missing the engine cover. I'm kind of anal about stuff like that. If the previous owner took it off why didn't he put it back on? I always save stuff like that to put back on. It would make me ask what else did he cut corners on or skip minor details? Just my opinion.

    the only button that doesnt look normal appears to say security at the bottom. Probably for theft protection. other than that it looks pretty good. i wouldnt worry about not havin that cover much
