No clue what it is.. I found it on my Jeep after it was in the garage over about half a day.

Hi, this is a jumping spider, possibly male seeking a female. He’s really cute. He had teal shiny chelacerae. They are the base of the fangs. That’s an indicator that it is a jumping spider. Not all species of jumping spider have that teal color, many have very hairy chelacerae. Big and hairy chelacerae are allegedly attractive to female spiders.
