tailgate bumpstop?

is this part on the tj tailgate a sort of bumpstop? im contemplating taking it off to make room for a 50cal ammo can. I don't want to just stick it in the middle of the tailgate, as I also want to mount a shovel and axe to it in the future. but if I put the ammo can above this (it should barley fit), I think it will get in the way of my soft top when its down. will the tailgate not close properly if I take it off?

No that's not a bump stop, just trim that covers the wires and holes that go to your 3rd brake light! I did away with mine when I raptor lined my tub and tailgat, I no longer needed the 3rd brake light!

I see what it is now.. its a contactor for the 3rd brake light. so I'd have to relocate the 3rd brake light to the tub somewhere if I were going to remove that completely? illegal to not have a 3rd brake here (tho im sure I could get away with saying the bulb burned out for a while)
