What is this piece?

Forgive me if this is a newbie question, but I can't do a search if I don't know what it is.
It's on the tailgate, to the left of the tire. I've seen it on some D90s and not on others.
Thanks in advance!

It's sorta a bumpstop. When you open your tailgate that piece should mate with a little knob on your tire carrier. It also help keeps your tailgate locked in the open position.

Thanks! I couldn't figure it out for the life of me.
BTW, your D90 and mine are almost twins. I think they came off the line pretty close to each other.

That part should help hold the door open with the little rubber nipple, goes in the hole. No jokes.
