Wht is the purpose of this?

I am highly curious if anyone knew the purpose of this?


That isn't my jeep. But best picture I could find. I think it is a drain plug but why?!?!

I think it's a place where the carpet snaps into, but I'm not 100% sure.

Likely simply a hole used during manufacturing so hooks can be inserted to move tub on assembly line.
When you have a choice, buy American.

i was planning on mounted ammo cans using those holes.
Logs belong in my mouth, not my tires.

I think it is used to mount a slide-in shelf or plate for added hauling. :-)
