I bought the upper glove box stuff for install on my 2012 Express from Mopar Online Parts. http://www.partswebsite.com/moparonlineparts/

As for installation, just do a google search of "ram upper glove box" and you will come up with some how to's from this forum as well as other Ram Forums. The install is not that hard, the most difficult part is getting the glove box door to line up. You will also need to get a few screws that are not supplied with the factor parts.

I just did mine last week (my second conversion). The hardest part was getting the upper glove box door aligned and fastened to the dash. I used 4 #8 x 3/4" pan head sheet metal screws w/washers from Autozone to fasten it to the dash. Also don't forget to remove that little bolt that holds the original bin to the dash. When removing the original bin it will easily pop out if you pull on it from behind by sticking your hand through where the lower glovebox was located.

It will make more sense once you get started, it's maybe a 45 minute job but well worth the trouble to do it.

Got around to doing this, write up helped a lot. I had to go to the hardware store to get the screws. I have U connect, when I hit the phone button it says "U connect active, say a command" or something. But I couldnt find the USB plug, input?

The USB cable is there to the left of the upper glove box wrapped in the main harness. If you turn on the radio the end of the cable will light up.

If you have the Uconnect option then check and see if the box has a USB cable in it like mine had.



This is what the end of the USB cale looks like, it has a light on the USB connection.
It was taped deep into the main harness behind the metal brace on the left.



The USB connection and Light Switch connector look like this.
