Simple installation for anyone.
Design. The security glovebox from Tuffy is made from incredibly strong 16 gauge steel, and is the perfect replacement option for the factory installed plastic glovebox. Whether your original glovebox has been damaged, or you simply want additional security, this is a great choice. It utilizes Tuffy's patented latch system that lets the glovebox be closed without the need to lock and unlock it every time it's used. There are security features galore on this product, including the 2-point welded, 0.5 inch solid steel striker construction, the innovative Pry-Guard II locking system, and the anti-twist push button lock system. It's all finished with a durable textured power coat.
Storage Capabilities. This is an exceptional choice to keep your storage safe. Not only does it have a number of security features, but it also maintains the utility of the original glovebox. For example, you'll still have the factory grab handle installed which means a simpler installation and the ability to continue using the handle. This glove box can be used to secure a number of small items: your Wrangler's registration, other important papers, money, phones, iPods, and more.
Application. Drilling is required for installation. All necessary installation hardware is included in the kit, and you will continue to use the factory mounted grab handle. Detailed instructions provide guidance for those with moderate or better mechanical skills. This high security glovebox fits 2007-2018 JK Wranglers.

Do you turn the lever or push the lock to open the door, or do you always need the key to open it up?

Some adjustments required
The fit was not great. It took a little convincing and a bench vice, rubber mallet and 2x4 in order to get the bracket aligned in such a way that I could actually get the mechanism to lock.Helpful (0)

This is definitely a sturdy glove box. I had my plastic glove box ripped out and completely damaged by a car intruder. The cost to by a full factory replacement was basically the same as the Tuffy box. Installation was pretty easy, took about 30 minutes. I opted not to do the optional security bolt, which would have required drilling. Biggest downside to this glove box is that it is noisy, but I fixed it. My Jeep isn't the smoothest ride and the roads where I live have lots of potholes. After a few days, I couldn't stand it. The metal on metal rattle came from where the latch connects with the rod on the inside, closing the box. I wrapped a very thin piece of of rubber with adhesive on the back around the rod. No more noise.Helpful (4)

Compared to the stock glove box this thing is a safe. It does not fit totally flush so -1 star.Helpful (5)

This item has a lot of potential to be incredible. No instructions included. Still relatively simple install. Except the strike bracket utilizes 2 welded bolts that are welded to the passenger airbag Module. These are small bolts and they are not strong. Do not over tighten the factory nuts like i did! You can guess why. Once completely installed and adjusted opening and closing is a mystery. The functionality is just not there. Could use a bit more RandD. Overall: close! Good try but disappointed in this product from such a reputable company.Helpful (5)

I watched the YouTube videos as well as several other reviews. I was a bit concerned at some of the stuff out there, but took a chance on the box and it actually went very well. The finish on the box looks good, seals tight without any rattle, and the lock is substantial. Yes the the gaps aren't perfect, but the general alignment is fine with me. It's a much better option than the stock box if you have any concerns when the top is down.Helpful (4)

Brackets installed easily in under 25 minutes. The alignment of the actual glovebox required some slight modifications to the plastics holds for the stock glovebox, once they were out of the way took only another 10 minutes to install. Love the way it looks and it is definitely sturdy. Makes me feel more comfortable about the safety of my belongings when the top and doors are off. Great product!Helpful (4)

3 Month Wait
Alright, so I had to wait literally 3 months for this product to ship. I decided to replace mine after someone broke into my wrangler (read: unzipped) and took the liberty of ripping my glovebox out of the dash. I had nothing in it, as I generally dont store much of value in the jeep, however I decided that it would be nice to have a secure spot if I did want to. After 3 months, finally got this unit in and It is like a tank. The installation was a little harder than I thought it would be and the instructions kind of suck, but once I got it in there and lined up it is bulletproof. Actually blends amazingly well with the dash and you honestly may not know its not factory if you werent looking. With the extra optional security bolts installed you will literallly have to break the dash apart to get to the contents. If you are security minded, this is the thing to buy.Helpful (9)

Metal is Better Than Plastic
I had a build list before I even had a Jeep and this product was on my list from day one. I live in a city and my Jeep had to be a soft top. Adding items like this can provide some peace of mind especially when riding doorless. This metal glovebox is great and I would really recommend it to anyone, especially if you have a soft top. It has a slightly smaller interior than the factory glovebox due to the lock but I can still fit everything I would want to put in a glovebox. It will keep honesty people honesty. Most thieves will move on long before they spent the time and effort it would take to break into this glovebox.Helpful (6)
