@BMitch, that's not it. I am familiar with that metal plate but mine was same width but with small holes and is as long as the 2x4 joist.

I thought it was a metal plate first but I can see drywall screws along the the length of the studs where I am trying to screw the hoist. I tried drilling close to one of the drywall screws and but hit a metal. I'll take a picture of the metal spacer that I saw from the other side of the garage ceiling and will post it here. Thanks @BMitch for your quick response.
