Default 1995 Eddie Bower 4wd F150 w/possible GPS Tracker

Hey, I'm pretty darn sure I have a GPS tracker on my truck. Bought it for cash so it's paid off wi/clear title. Not doing anything illegal or hiding from the law.

I suspect a paranoid landlord as he has known about places I've been that he wouldn't otherwise know.

Anyhow, got to looking around with light and mirror this morning and found a blue box that is larger than most trackers but there are plastic wire splices nearby.

There is a hard thin paper panel coming down form the center under the dash and this blue box is glued to it. There seems to be too many wires coming out for a tracker, but they could be dummies with the tracker hidden inside the blue plastic box.

I read that some dealers install them in ways that will disable the engine if removed.

So cutting to the chase, does anyone out there have a similar blue box under the dash or know what it is?

BTW, the box is wrapped in heavy clear plastic.

In case anyone actually responds,

Tthanks!

Harold

Glad Justintendo pointed out that Bauer thing, it was bothering me. It's the guy's name. Eddie Bauer.
Anyway the blue box is an airbag module, most likely. Unless you have 2 blue boxes under there.

Thanks y'all. Spelling is not my forte even if it's written on the side of my truck.

Tracing some of the wires sort if indicated it was something I wanted to keep and thanks for verifying.

I've since learned that some magnetic trackers have well over 100 days of tracking and my truck is only fired up about 30 times per year so why hard wire.
