Hmm, I haven't taken apart my truck yet so I'll have to guess... Is it the mount for the back side of the ignition switch?

Oh, I have fiddled with one of those. But I can't remember for sure where, I wanna say it's for the headlight switch?

Yes it is! :thup: This little bracket stabilizes the backside of the ignition switch, and is attached to the bottom of the dash lip with a sheetmetal screw.

Unless said screw is used to hold a small speaker box to the bottom of the dash, and the screw comes loose enough to let the speaker hang at a bit of an angle but not quite snugged up, and rattles everytime you hit a bump. :doh: :lol:
