Any ideas what this is for? Right behind the bumper on the drivers side. Its not fog lights as you can obviously see I already have them installed.

Daytime runing light module goes there I believe.

much like anything else near there the best way to find out what it is, is to hit with a hammer while the ignition is on. J/k

im pretty sure swetrid is right it looks similar to the plugs in toyota trucks daytime running light module

i agree its the daytime running lights

Vehicles have those everywhere. After a while you just ignore them.

Sometimes they are unused plugs for options that your vehicle was not equiped with. other times they are for troubleshooting that only the Ford people use and have the equipment for.
