Im buying a 2007 or 2008 Jeep Wrangler X..im new to all of this jeep stuff and i want to buy it with low miles..Its very hard to find exactly what i want i find everything i want but the power windows and door locks..Is there any way a jeep dealer or auto shop put in a kit for this?

Sorry i dont have an answer for you. But im AMAZED in the year 2009 that power windows and door locks arent an automatic thing. Who still wants manual **** these days(besides transmissions of course)??

There are several do-it-yourself kits for power windows out there and fairly inexpensive between $250-$350. I'm sure if you weren't comfortable doing it, you could find a stereo/window tint place that would do it for a fee.

I have never seen a kit for power locks (although, I've never looked too hard)

I put power Doorlocks in my TJ and power locking rear gate. Google "Door Lock Actuator". Its just a reverse polarity actuator. Not that hard to do the doors, gates a little tricky. Just make sure you put some sort of disconnect at the door jamb for when you take the doors off.

Me and by buddy installed some aftermarket automatic windows. Maybe he got a cheap set, but neither of us were very impressed. If I were you I would spend a little extra change and get some good ones.

The only reason for auto windows are that you can't reach the pass door in a JK?
