I suspect it is mine. Need to find time to get it up and investigate.

Don't we all?

But, this one would have appeared after 20 years without incident.

Not saying it isn't the case. But, unlikely. ?

How do you know it's from your truck?

In all seriousness it does look like the bolts ford uses. However, it also looks pretty worn. Not only the chips in the coating and spots of rust but the bolt edges look rounded as if it were removed and re-installed a few times or by someone with not quite the right size socket.

I might still get it checked out but my guess is its an older bolt.

Maybe the bolt got dropped into a body panel or frame crevice during assembly and they couldn't find it, so they installed another one. This may have been rattling around somewhere and finally fell out as you turned into your driveway. (?).

I guess it depends on how much traffic you get on your street. Maybe the trash truck or pickers or someone else driving through and it bounced ? The thing looks a bit old.

You must be part of the Early Access Program. I heard about the next Power Up where the truck will shed parts it deems unnecessary or that you haven’t used in a while to save weight and increase efficiency. You will be seeing the change in your Guess O Meter soon—congratulations!
