Default Parts in spare tire well

What is the part that sits to the right of the mobility kit? On the left is the tow hook. My car didnít come with part that goes on the right. Any value in getting the missing part?

Btw, I am planning to get a spare tire kit or get one used wheel and tire to keep as a spare. Iíve read AAA is your friend.

That's not something that came with the car. Not a stock part. Looks like a home made tow hook.

Its some aftermarket tow hook - likely intended for the front (longer shaft).

Am I only the only one who keeps a G17 with plastic stock, forward grip, and a handful of 33rnd mags in the big empty cubby-hole on the passenger side of the engine bay? And a rag for checking my oil.

I am going to go out on a limb and say "yes" you are likely the only one.

It's also a good place to keep a small quart of oil.

I realize this is off-topic to the thread question, but I have to ask; why?
Other than the "drug-bin" (as it's often called) being empty, what it the point of storing your firearm here? I can't think of a situation where that would be useful other than if you needed it while you were actively working in the engine bay...and even then, might as well have it strapped to your person. Plenty of other better places to store your gun, which I am sure you are already aware of. (And knowing you, I'd bet you have guns hidden in those locations too, Doogey!)
