Was working on my 2020 JL Sahara over the weekend and took off the plastic cover on the inside of the tailgate..
I saw this pushed into the opening...Watched a few videos of people working back there and not one video has this part hooked up?
Does anyone know what this is?

I believe that is an add-on that causes the 3rd brake light to flash. Definitely not factory.

My first thought is that isn't OEM. Maybe someone is tracking you?

I'd remove it and leave a sticky note; "Nice try Fed".

Interesting, would explain why my 3rd brake light flashes and others do not. Wonder why this would be installed.. bo where was it stated that it was installed..
If the dealer installed it, it has to be listed in the "additional accessories / dealer options" line items and list out what it is and how much it costs.

Wonder why this would be installed.
Did you purchase new or used?

If new, it was likely done by the dealer for one of many reasons. Most likely as one of their add-ons that they can charge extra money for. If it wasn't disclosed to you and you were not charged for it, chalk it up as a freebie.

If you bought used, then it was installed by previous owner. Only explanation that make sense in that scenario.

Its just a tracking device, no big deal. And don't cut the red wire first! "sarcasm"
