your truck doesn't have fog lights does it? if it doesn't that might just be the wire for the fog light switch, its usually under the aux plug.
i dont know if ford would put the wire in for fog lights if you dont have them, it could just be the way they are made.

Is is plug fat and yellow(fog light)? Or skinny and gray(4x4 switch)? My guess is that its just an option that is wired into the ford harness even tho your truck didnt come with that option.
