New to CJs, what are these parts?

I'm having to rewire my tail lights and came across these parts that I can't quite identify.

I'm also possibly having to replace my stop signal module...is there an easy way to get to that? Looks like a giant PITA with it being at the end of the master cylinder directly under the steering rod!

the second one looks like an ACdelco horn relay

The first one, I would think is a block junction, although it looks different then what I had on my CJ3B:

No, the block junction is next to the horn relay. Here's a pic of the general area. You can see the junction block, what I now think to be the horn relay and the mystery relay on the side of the radiator...

The first pic could be something like a self resetting breaker or fuse holder. What is it connected to?

To the driver side of the radiator. The post above shows the area in a little more detail.

Not what is it mounted to, where do the wires go? i.e. what is it connected to?

And I agree, it looks to be a self resetting circuit breaker.

Garage
Back when I installed a large footprint dual battery isolator this was one of the components.

The parts shop that stocks part for Skylab II will not have parts for our year/model of Jeep
We cannot accurately judge the trajectory of a speeding critter (cat, dog, sasquatch)
Record heat waves and floods only occur when we visit that area

That first one, take a look at it from inside the grill. It looks like the backside of a standard toggle switch to me. Maybe a previous owner added it as an antitheft device.

After digging around and basically rewiring the entire electrical system, I think it's a relay for towing.

It still looks like a toggle switch to me. If you look closely, you can see the "on-off" tab that is under it and has shifted off center.

HI I have to agree with schardein.. if it were a relay or a breaker it would have had a tab on it to attach it to the body or some tape holding it to the body.. it does not have a tab or tape.. so I believe its a toggle switch. Why does not the poster tell us what its wired to liked asked?? or whats under inside the grill..
good luck

Nope a relay would have at least 3 wires going to it.. it only has two like most unlighted toggle switch.
Not starting to believe this poster.. the second picture is of a relay but not the first.. also its not attached to the radiator its attached to the grill air box. If he can't see that then Eyedoc needs glasses..
sorry that's how I feel.
good luck
