My original plastic box was damaged when I bought the vehicle, this is a very nice replacement. Everything was included, even a lot of extra bolts and nuts. Replacement took about an hour, including removal of the stock plastic piece. Had to do some fidgeting to get it under the dash pad, though. Powder coat isn't the best, but it better than the damaged old box.
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.
My first order for the glove box lid came right on time! The bad news.... it was missing all the hardware to install it and the printed instructions. Customer service dept was helpful and emailed me return authorization form. I had to wait several more days for a new unit to be shipped to me. It did have everything included this time. Because of having to wait extra time for the second product to be shipped, I was unable to install it prior to my vacation. It seems very heavy duty and I hope to install it after I get back!
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.
Good product. Install instructions and photos are poor quality. Eventually got it in and seems to be a solid product.
I needed to replace the original glove box in my TJ. This looked like a good solution. Fit was excellent. I painted to match interior. Install was easy except provided bolts were too short. I recommend.
fits my vehicle almost as well as specified. I'm not able to use 2 screws that the original glove box came with. So security isn't maximum, but it's still pretty secure. The foam sealant that came with this product was old and not usable because the sticky side was no longer sticky. It looks like it had dried out. But all in all, I like this product for the price I paid.

Does this product come with detailed instructions? Do you need to remove the o/e glove box or just the door? 2016 Jeep JK
