I don't have one on my 93. Maybe it's something that PO added. It's not just covering up a hole is it?

If that's a 3/4" hole the PO probable had a CB or Ham radio antenna mounted there. Probable nothing more than a plug to keep water from getting in.

That's what I think. You also have an aftermarket radio antenna on there.
