If you look closely on the firewall, you will probably see the other end of the strap terminal held on by a sheetmetal screw. Other straps are used from the exhaust to the body and front struts to the body.
Woven braided ground straps are electrically quieter that circular stranded wire grounding. The straps won't carry huge current like the heavier ground wires, but are good at static electricity dissipation generated by going down the road. Less RFI that could cause possible AM radio noise, disturb sensitive electronics or create ground loops. Distributed grounds may seem redundant, but do keep the electrical noise down. Chrysler wouldn't spend 50¢(?) on a ground strap and fasteners if it didn't think it was necessary to be there.
