    This was in the glove box of my Taco when I bought it. I cannot figure out what it is. Has anyone here ever seen anything like this?

    see my sig
    sort of like "guess this object" not sure it goes in the gen 2 taco section but hey I'll take a shot -

    my vote is - a handle from a piece of outdoor patio furniture

    I am fairly confident that it IS NOT an OEM part of your truck.

    That makes sense. I thought it may be some aftermarket gizmo or something, but now that you mention it, it does look like something from outdoor furniture. Thanks.

    I think you guys are right. It does have that decorative look to it. It could also be the end of a curtain rod

    That's a great idea. I'm going to do that this afternoon. ;)
    If that's the case, then I am definitely going do it. I may put a sticker on the back window too, that should be good for another 5hp at least. :D

    I think it was a part of something, who know's what.

    But the guy inspecting, just realized he had it in his pocket and threw it in there.

    Or when it got driven off the truck to the sales lot, same thing. Someone was just getting rid of a piece of junk.
