I'm not 100% positive, but I think it goes in a threaded hole...maybe.
I'm sure others with more experience will chime in shortly.

Looks like a body bolt.
Check the fenders to body tub connection points/battery tray support bars/
front grill to the fenders connection points/radiator to front grill.

Check your brake line support bracket on both sides of the frame.

Check your fuel and brake line paths. It looks like a line clamp bolt/screw.

Looks like a catalytic cover bolt that holds the shield together, away from the cat.

Thanks for all the responses. I am beginning to think it might not be from the CJ. I have checked pretty much everywhere and nothing is missing. Will update further.
Thanks again everyone.

Definitely a Jeep bolt. Check your fan shroud mounting bolts. There should be 4, 2 on each side; at bottom and 3/4 up. Check plastic water reservoir too! There’s nothing more nerve racking than finding a mystery bolt, lol. Good luck!

My lawn mower uses the same kinda bolts to hold the covers over the spindle pulleys.

I have to remove (at least one side) to put the belt onto the pulley...The covers capture the belt in the pulley groove so that the belt stays in place

Maybe this is the case with your bolt.

Yes I would say it is definitely bolt more than likely threaded into the frame. Do you have a skid plate on your fuel tank?
