Power locks in a YJ

Has anyone ever done one of those Universal power door lock actuator kits like this in a YJ? I can get a kit real cheap and was wondering how hard it would be to do. Also could I just go to the junkyard and grab some actuators and switches out of an old vehicle???

You know .. I haven't thought of putting power locks into my Jeep before .. an interesting idea. I don't see why it wouldn't work. Do it, write a full story on it and share with the rest of us!!!

I am wanting to put power windows into my Jeep before I put my full cage in .. rolling windows up and down in full-hard doors with a full cage is impossible. Winters around here you want to be able to roll them up and down continously.

...because the front legs of the full cage come down right where the window roll up handle is at, making it really hard to get to.

Well NaeKid I think I will go and buy that universal door lock kit and install it when I do the 350 swap in April while she's in the shop.

I'll borrow a friends new digital camera so i can have some good detailed pics to go with the writeup. Maybe I'll do those power windows too at the sime time

Would be possible to put power locks on the tailgate? Or is there not enough room back there for an actuator?

I hate having to walk back there and lock it all the time, plus I forget about it 90% of the time. Wiring it in with the other locks would make everything a lot easier.

Everything is possible with enough engineering and thought. I've never seen or heard of it but that doens't mean its impossible.

Let us know how all of this works out when its finished.

Yeah, it's possible, i have them in my jeep. I don't have switches though, they just lock and unlock when I arm/disarm my alarm.
