What is this canister attached to the frame? The picture is looking forward from the front of the bed.

Shake weight. Looks like a useless NVH weight.

Thanks for the fast response! But what is a shake weight or NVH? The truck is new to me and I don't know my way around it yet.

Ok let me put some effort in my response.
To me it looks like a weight that Ford loves to stick all over there cars. It’s function is to remove or reduce a certain frequency that some engineer recorded during a test drive. I remove them on every car I have owned taking usually 20-30 pounds out of a mustang. I’m very sensitive to NVH and have yet to ever notice a difference after removal. They usually come in 2 different flavors. Heavy weight in Vulcanized rubber. Or steel shot in a cylinder.

Thanks for the in-depth explanation. This is the first time I've ever heard about it. It does sound kind of useless.
