Hey guys . Have any of you guys ever installed power door locks on your truck. I have a crew cab and iam getting tired of always having to reach around an unlock all the doors for my passengers.( ok its not fatigue, its laziness) Anyway , does anyone know where i might be able to get a kit to do this. It doesnt seem like it wolud be that difficult to do. The difficult part is justifying the extra expense to my wife!
Find a CC with PDL's in the JY and take all the door panels switches, wiring, and the locks, and go for it. All bolt in's, the Trick will be to get the GEM to control them so you have Keyless entry>....... But you could easily wire them up manually. Even easier, take the doors with everything in them. You could get PW's as well....
My truck had manual door locks also, I had a local audio store install an alarm and door actuators on the front doors only. After getting it home I pulled the front door panel off to see what was involved, super simple. Went back bought 2 more actuators and did the rears in about 2hours just tapped into the wires they ran for the fronts. The actuators are allover the web any where from 5 bucks to 20 bucks they all look the same. Mine is set up to lock if all the doors are closed when the truck starts, and unlock when the ignition is turned off. So to unlock from the inside I have to shut the truck off, but it would be pretty simple to add a switch. So thats an option plus you can sell her on the security of the alarm. These trucks are pretty popular for thieves.
