What have you found in your Jeep

This one goes out mostly to people who have purchased theirs used but maybe some one owners have unusual finds.

Some background information. I purchased my 2009 JKUR used last year. A couple of weeks ago I dropped my IPod into the black hole. That space between the seat and the center console. I was lucky enough to read on a thread here that there is a black hole where anything dropped here actually slides under the carpet and seemingly disappears. That is what my IPod did and luckily I knew exactly where to look. I lifted the carpet and found my IPod, however, I found several other interesting items. None of these items were mine. I found:

An IPhone
A live .308 round
3 pencils
1 pen

I was wondering what surprising finds other people have found in their black holes or anywhere else in their Jeep. This could be interesting.

11 hot pink and purple fake nails under the backseat. I always wondered about number 11.

With the top off people are always dropping things in my Jeep when I'm away, mostly trash and flyers.

I found the previous owners credit card behind the glove box. I never did see if it was working.

Nothing cool like that, but when I first got my 09 a few months ago I drove to work topless for the first time (my first Jeep). I stoped at a gas station about midway, roughly 20 miles away, and when I parked a cat jumped out from behind the back seat and took off running.

When I pulled my front carpet up I just found the typical spare change, french fries, cheetos, pens, that sort of thing.

When I was a young lad driving my dad's CJ around, I left it parked at a trailhead once and came back to find a homeless guy in it...

Never imagined that anyone would have found living beings in their jeep.

LOL

A bird's nest between the grill and the radiator low on the driver's side.

When I bought my YJ it had been garaged for 15 years. The air filter had a family of dead mice, some nice soft bedding they had made, and the appropriate droppings.

I found flowers in my back seat before when I had the top down. Looked like someone picked them and set them in my back seat

Guess this more common than I thought.
Funny.
I've found about $2.50 in miscellaneous change, none of which was pre-65, sadly. :-)
Two lighters, washers, pencil, couple of pens, more toothpicks than I care to count. Now if I could just find some Krugerrands.

Removed the carpets to clean them (after a really deep off road puddle, hell of a lot deeper than I thought it was), any way under the carpet in front of the console I found a really nice hash pipe.

I replaced the cowl seal about a month ago and found some glasses and a lighter in the window frame.

When I first got my jeep back when it was still warm in the fall, i had the top down and it was parked down near the driveway. When I came out, there were a bunch of neighborhood kids in it playing "army".

I had to shoo them out, its a manual, and if they had taken the parking brake off and kicked it out of gear, they could have been in trouble

You are the one who made it look like a modern day interpretation of a WWII Jeep. If only it had a .50 Cal mounted in the back then the kids would have had a real good time.
