I found that I'm just not sure that is what it is.

It looks like where the crankshaft sensor should go.....

I am not a hemi guy, but have had a few in the past.

Btw, if you are doing a swap on your rig, I'd suggest to get to know your engine as best as you can, before even trying to tear the jk down... It will save you a lot of time and headaches. It will be easier to pin point any mechanical/electrical issues in the future.

Good luck

Got it from the dealer, it is where the optional block heater goes.
