Default Power window conversion kit that uses existing crank - has anyone used this product?

I have an 07 "work truck" with manual everything, and was thinking about converting to power windows. I found this product made by Autoloc that I assume is pretty similar to other conversion kits, only it uses the original crank handle to control the motor, instead of having to install a bunch of ugly aftermarket switches on your door. I'm just curious if anyone has actually used this or heard about it at all.

Here's the link to the product:
http://www.autoloc.com/catalog/Power...s-All-Vehicles

I thought it was a cool idea instead of having to add switches to your doors, but I wanted to find out if it's a decent product. It's $100 a door, so not a bad price if it works well.

Has anyone used this before?

I've seen them. I'm going to be getting the kit for my 56 ford.

Looks cool, my only gripe about having manual windows is reaching over to roll down the passenger though. So doing something like this I would be in the same boat lol, just throw a couple switches in the door, or even stick them under the ashtray or armrest.

That's only for the switch though. Doesn't have the motor you need as well. So your talking $100 per door EXTRA? That's insane. You'd be better off going to a junk yard and finding a truck with power windows, taking the door panels, motor & regulator, AND the switches. While you are in there too, you could grab the door lock actuators and door lock switches and be set. Then you get the fun job of wiring everything up.
