What is This?
 
1 Attachment(s)
This device is attached to the tailpipe, facing forward, about two feet from the rear bumper. Anyone know what it does?

It's made of rubber. I am guessing it's a damper for the tailpipe - to absorb vibrations/reduce noise.

Clearly that was put on there by Chryco to slow down the JGC. Take it off I'm sure its worth at least 15 extra horsepower judging by the numbers I can read on it.

I Kid, I'm not sure what that is but the suggestion it's used for sound damping makes pretty good sense to me

probably an actuator to keep the car sounding "right" when MDS kicks in or not. i read somewhere that there is an actuator on the exhaust for Hemi models to keep the car from sounding like a 4 cylinder when MDS kicks in...

+1 looks like a damper but it doesn't seem to show up on the parts list for either the V6 or V8.

I suppose a damper is as good a guess as any. I've never seen that on a vehicle. Interesting how the front is hollowed out a bit. Thanks for all the replies. :)
