There is one just like it on the drivers side near the brake booster on my 2015 Laramie 1500. The one on my truck is for the radio. Pull it and see what stops working.

The electrical tape looks it may be a factory wrap on the loom

To me it looks aftermarket. Maybe for something the first owner had but removed when they sold the truck. See if you can follow the harness to see where it comes from and goes to. Someone mentioned pulling the fuse to see if anything stops working which would also work.

ok, thanks all. Yea might pull the loom apart and see if factory wrap or add on. It would be nice to know before something stops working and i forget about it. it has no add on's so thats not really going to happen. But still.
