    Hahaha... No, seriously though. The hole right above the exhaust manifold. It's threaded, and I'm not sure what's supposed to be there. Any ideas? [​IMG]

    most likely its for a mounting something for a different model vehicle that needs different bracketry, pretty common for there to be multiple threaded mounting holes unused around the block in various places

    Makes sense, but why are these threads so clean still?

    may have just had a bolt screwed in it that fell out?????? it is strange and does look too clean to have not had a bolt in it.

    was anything done to your truck recently? maybe they lost or stripped a bolt on something and just took a bolt from that hole to replace it with

    I was just talking about how the threads "seem" to look fresh and clean like they haven't been open and exposed to getting dirty for the past 10 years
