I was spendin' the day fixin some stupid door latches on this van. Newly acquired 5.4 v8 1998 e150 Ford. She needs love.

I fixed the latches Mcgyver style... thought I was gonna need dynamite but turned out all a needed was some sewing scissors and periscope.

but, anyhow... I come across this wierd kinda goofy lil' thang in the back. Made think, "WHAT IN THE HEYL?!?!?"

Here, take a gander:

That looks like the clamp or safety clamp for the spare wheel carrier.

You might find it useful to search for an owners manual for the car online or second-hand as that will help you with many things you don't yet know about the car.
