    I just noticed there's a decal/sticker with what appears to be a chip(similar to the sun pass mini) on the driver side inside part of the windshield near the top.

    It's about 1 inch tall and maybe 5 or 6 inches wide? Anyone know what that is?

    Looks like it, doubt it is, there's no markings on it or anything. Can't take a picture =/ phone is broken and camera is being borrowed.


    My truck is a brand new 2010 regular cab base model 2wd.

    Likely an inventory tag. Possibly RFID. Is it flat? Does if have tiny chip in the center of it?

    I would say it is an RFID (passive) inventory control chip.

    I'd take it off......otherwise the Martians will always know where you are so they can adjust their Flux Tractor Beam onto you. You don't want an anal probe.

    Was your truck a Mexico or California build?

    Mine was CA and did not have the sticker. If yours is MX and does, then maybe it has something to do with international shipping.
