2013 JKU What's this for? Inside glovebox door
 
1 Attachment(s)
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.

hmmm. Im just throwing out ideas here so dont hold me to it. Maybe on different trim levels there is a light for the glove box and that spot is for mounting the switch that turns the light off and on. When you open, the switch closes and the light comes on and when you shut the glove box the switch opens and the light goes off...maybe?

That's where the optional Ejection Switch mounts. If the passenger does not like the line you take over obstacles, all he/she has to do is open the glove box, flip the switch, and you're gone. On soft top models, the Sunrider top automatically folds back before the driver's seat is launched. On the hardtop, one Freedom Panel is jettisoned by small explosive charges prior to launch. 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.
