What is this plug in my glovebox?

Hi, new diesel owner and loving my Laramie edition 04 Ram 2500 with the Cummins 5.9. Two months into ownership, and I've noticed that it seems to get better-than-stock mileage, and WILL NOT smoke black under any circumstances (not that I want it to.)

This leads me to believe that it has been tuned prior to my ownership. Then I found this weird plug in the glovebox that runs into the dash... what is it?

Looks like an old and relevant to the year of the truck cell phone charger. Good old flip phone I'd guess.

Seems wider than an ipod jack, but I could be mistaken. I was hoping it was a connection to a display for a tuner. The truck also has an aftermarket aux jack in the dash next to the stereo. 🤷‍♂️

Truck probably had a previous owner that upgraded the radio and added those in. The glovebox would be a horrible spot to route anything besides an ipod cable or charger of some kind.

2018 Ram 3500 Limited - Crew Cab Long Box 4x4 SRW Stock at the moment, but that will change

Apple 30 pin for ipod. You might still be able to plug in a newer i phone.
