Jeeps with this feature are easily identified by the releasable clamps rather than bolts holding the driver's seat to the floor. All Wranglers equipped with this switch are required to have a warning label on the visor advising the driver to wear a helmet. The top-of-the-line model has a similar button mounted on the steering wheel that will eject the passenger's seat during periods of excessive nagging and/or whining. I keep my glovebox locked.
And this.

2013 JKU What's this for? Inside glovebox door

Hi all, newbie here with the first real mystery after 3 months in my '13 JKU Sport. While setting up to install my hardtop hoist last night, I spotted this inside the glovebox door. The screw holes are fully supported with anchoring behind. It's clearly an accessory mounting location, probably for an uplevel model, but I'd like to know what's intended.
