Default What the heck is this on my tranny?

i took some picks underneath the 2014 and saw a black box attached to my transmission.
I dont recall having this on my 2010.

Also did i not get a skid plate to protect transmission? I think my 2010 had skid plate
I have to look again.

I think that's the transfer case actuator to shift between H-N-L in the AWD system.
