    I have a 1984 Blazer. On the driver's side of my cap, there is this hole, about 3 inches across and 2 inches deep. It has some metal fittings or contacts in it. Can anyone tell me what it's for? Is something missing from the hole?

    What cap am I talking about?

    The fiberglass cap/shell/cover that is mounted over the rear of the Blazer, covering the rear seat and bed.

    The whole is actually about 2 inches across and one inch deep (now that I take another look at it). It's on the back portion of the front of the frame of the cap, behind the driver's seat.

    And I thought the cargo light wiring was overhead center according to the instructions for removing the cap in the manual.

    Nope, there should be a white metal plate screwed into those metal pieces. It is most definitely for the topper light. Wiring comes up from the side panel (as I recall) and goes into that panel, where there is a black plastic connector. Pull the connector out, disconnect from the ropper end, you can remove the top. :)
