    Does anyone recognize this broken clamp? I found if the other day sitting in the gravel, kind of right under the back bumper where I park. Not sure if it could have fallen off when backing out or pulling in though, so not convinced it came from towards the rear.
    Have looked at exhaust, hoses, etc and can’t seem to find anything or anywhere it seems to be missing. I wouldn’t be convinced it came off of my 2007 Tacoma except it actually appears to have 2017 - 01 stamped on it which would be pretty coincidental.
    Thanks!

    Not a stock clamp at all. So look at pipe like things (like exhaust) that are aftermarket.

    That’s very interesting - almost makes me think more then that it’s not even from my truck! Which I was leaning toward but the fact it was stamped with a date the same year as my truck is sure a heck of a coincidence then!
    Thanks you all!

    I've seen those on air intake tubes and such.

    There are “Tik Tokers” who joke around with loosening lug nuts on cars. Got anyone in your vicinity doing that, ie; throwing junk parts at cars to worry owners it came from their vehicle.?
