I purchased this for a 2000 Wrangler. Installation was fairly easy. Some of the holes in the new glove box frame did not align up with the existing holes. I used a round file to enlarge 2 holes in the direction they were slightly off and I had to drill 2 new holes in the new metal frame for the screws in the latch area. It was easy to do and I am pleased with the end results. This new glove box is a lot more secure than the OEM glove box door.
Box installs easily enough using existing OEM holes and screws. Additional holes are recommended for extra security. Screws and washers provided were useless so I used 4 self tapping screws in the locations recommended and it was a cinch. Foam tape provided was brittle and old so I uses a bit of home window foam tape just fine. Lastly, put some oil on the lock mechanism after installing. I came out the next morning and could not get the lock to open! A bit of 3 in 1 oil and it glides open now.
I've had this glovebox for a couple years now and I have loved it, except that when I am out in the sticks, it's pretty loud. It came with some foam sticker stuff to help insulate it to reduce noise, but it still rattles a bit. I used some spray foam and that helped for a while until it fell off. I've ended up taking an old rag and sticking part of it inside so when it's locked, part of the rag is hanging out and that is usually enough to fill the gap so it doesn't rattle much, if at all. Again, great product, just a little rattly every now and then.
