I remember cleaning mine I found a shot gun shell or two behind the jump seats. It was a used truck of course. I still have them around here somewhere...No fruit though!

I would suspect the dealer rather than the factory
or even the transport company as they move by rail or truck and then go through staging lots

well if you bought your truck in New Jersey it was railed from MN to the port at Newark
there it was 'prepped' at FAPS and then trucked to the dealer
could have blown up into the engine compartment at any of those times or been left there when the battery was connected
also possible some varmint picked garbage and then cozied up in your nice warm engine compartment for a snack
I would not be too concerned

lol nice. but i would think it would be really rotten or hard to even tell what it was if it was from when the truck was assembled.

i think neil is prolly right.

i didn't find anything in or on mine that was strange.
