Unbelievably great price after nearly 2 days of haggling, good size engine,
Friday, I went to stuff my laptop under the passenger seat, and to my surprise, the space is filled [with an object] and neatly and completely carpeted over.
Hmmm, I peeled back some of the carpet from the trim, and it's an electronic box of some sort. Can't really tell whether it's bolted or welded to the chassis' floorboard.
I took her back around to the dealer; talked with the fleet salesman who said he'd never seen anything like it, and I was referred around to various sales and maintenance folks. Finally the truck manager looked up the vehicle's records and said that they had acquired it from another dealer [in Atlanta] so it may have had some speciality destination; however, he had no idea what the object was/is/could be except that [according to his best judgment and experience] it was included with the vehicle from factory manufacture because of the way the carpet fit, etc.
Well, that was half a day down the tubes without any satifactory answer... except that they are all pretty sure it's not going to 'blow up' (o;!
I wonder if anyone in here might know what is the deal, without me having to tear out the seat, rip back the carpet, and generally dissect the vehicle?
Many thanks in advance for any information!
