Default Install Power Door Locks

Simple enough? No, i can't find anywhere OEM door locks from Ford and I want to install them on my truck that came with manual locks and windows, can anyone show me how to? or is it not worth it?

I put in after market power door locks using this kit , they work great . I didnt get the remote . I also can control the locks from the inside of the truck using switches

here I am pal! Im sorry for the delay, never saw your visitors message!

Dont go for aftermarket junk, a clean oem installation is possible. offcourse, its more expensive and will require a more difficult install process, but the results will be much, much betetr!

As clinton sayed, I wont be doing this for a couple of months, meanwhile, Im getting all the parts Ill need;

- both doors wire harness (got them)
- both windows motors with regulators (pending)
- both handles with switches (already got them thanks to clinton)
- relay, fuses, cables (pending)

Its possible to intall the original components, dont go for aftermarket!!!
OEM are always better!

Ill make a nice write up when Ive done this, but as I live in the wrong emisphere, I have to wait at least 3 or 4 months to do this

BTW you guys may not know this but to add the power lock actuators to your door latches you have to swap out the "door ajar" switches. When you try to install the actuators on latches that came non powered the electrical connector is in the way. The other switches go in at a different angle allowing the actuator to fit.
