Upper Glove Box Install with Pictures

After some reading from a few sources, I found the parts to replace the empty bin in the ST trucks with the upper glove box. It only consists of three parts and some fasteners. I purchased the parts from Steve White Parts. The cost was right at $175 with shipping. The only tools needed is a ratchet with a 6 inch extension and a 7mm socket.

Then push the back of the glove box until it pops out of the hole.

That is all. Enjoy your new upgrade. This install literally took me about 20 minutes.

That's awesome! I wonder if I can do that to my 2013? I've been looking at that open hole with safety glasses, laser temp gun and other stuff wishing I could make them disappear and not fall out. Might have to check into this upgrade!
