that looks like the electric "choke" that is attached to the instrument panel voltage regulator (IPVR). The newer ones, 70-72 I think, have the 9V battery style connections on them.

It's a disgronificator. Your truck won't run without it. :D

Poking around online with the part number, it seems to be a Radio Resistor Suppressor Choke. Used to suppress electrical noises from the engine to the stereo. Don't know why they were put there instead of near the radio wiring, but they seem to have been more common in vehicles with AM radios rather then the AM/FM.

They were probably put where they were because that was the noisiest part of the wiring as far as the AM radio was concerned.
