That's the one thing I miss on my truck so I did a little search and this is what I will be getting for the keyless entry.

Do you want to swap in factory power locks/windows or just aftermarket? To swap in factory you have to get a whole new wiring harness, take the dash apart, ect. Lots of work but it can be done. There were two people that I know of that have done it.

Its a lot of work man but it can be done. Easiest to find a complete door but I doubt you'll find a yellow ranger with power locks at a junkyard with mint condition doors lol.

Oh man. I really thought you could just put in a power door lock motor. I wanted to do that and get an alarm, only need the keyless on the drivers door, I don't need the buttons in the truck. Dang.

If you guys plan on doing it, i highly suggest you find doors at a junkyard that already have all the electrical in them. Installing window motors and wiring it all can be a pain in the ass if you've never done it before lol.

You would still need to replace the harness behind your dash. I think there are more things to swap over but im not completely positive because i haven't done it but was interested in doing it to my truck at one point. I did look around and saw that swapping doors saves a ton of time, especially if u find some the same color as your own truck.

Thanks! Power actuators are pretty easy to install. I look forward to this project.
