Default Can anyone identify this bolt?

The wife found this in our driveway where I park the truck. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Probably an exhaust manifold-to-Y-pipe stud.

What year is the truck and under what part of the truck in the driveway was it found, front, rear? Also take a pic next to a ruler so we can get a better idea where it might be from.

Broken off Exhaust manifold stud, either, from y-pipe, or from the cylinder head.

2011, not sure where it was found, I don't always park the same way. It length is about 1" to maybe an 1-1/2".

Yep, and my money's on a head stud. Probably the pass. side, that seems to be the problem child.

It's been over a week - are you EVER going to look at the locations on the truck we've suggested to find out what's missing?
