You could use it to tie things down if needed. Specially if you lower the front windshield you'll to tire it down to that.

That's called a footman loop and it's made for when you fol the windshield down. There should be one just like it on the inside of your windshield frame. When the Jeep was new there was actually a strap that was tied to that so when you fold the windshield down you can tie it down so it doesn't flop around.

You are all wrong. It's where you tie down the windshield when you lower it.
