What is the purpose of this metal bump-out below the rear license plate mount?

Thanks for info.

The tire hits the stop instead of the tail lamp, or anything else...

How obvious (but not to me).

Thanks.

And the chain loop in the spare tire on the back has a hook on one end that hooks to the bumper to keep the rear door open when on an incline.

Nope...I had to look at it really close too. I thought it might be a shovel mount or something. Picked up on it when the door bounced off the mount. No such thing as a dumb question!
