Quadratec carries a bolt-in power window kit that works great, and is pretty easy to install.

If you want to do power locks, you'll be better off getting the OEM mopar power door latches instead of the generic power lock regulators. There's very little room in the doors for them, and the angles aren't great for connecting to the latch rods.

He has half doors now. If you buy or trade someone with full power doors, youll have to get the power harness and center console stack bezel with switch. The dealer will also have to flash your computer so that they will work.

Have full and half doors. Bought the half doors went to jeep and bought the same harness and locking mechanism. All works the same. Added a switch to lock/unlock doors below the handle of the center console.

Thanks for the info. I just found a guy who wants to trade. Is the dealer gonna know how to do this? I have had some horrific experiences with them in the past. He will even trade the panel in the center console! I'll just need to buy the harness.

I'm definitely gonna do all the work myself! I just don't wanna walk into this blind. I already started calling some dealers and they don't have a clue what I'm trying to do. You would think that jeep dealerships would be used to us messing with our jeeps.

O2bdirty,

Did you modify so you have new electric remote key to lock/unlock as well, or only a switch inside?

I looked at this a while ago to add the full power group and there are a lot of pieces to swap.

I have an aftermarket remote in my jeep. Its a clifford. The switch I had put in because I would have done it wrong. Mine is a 2007. I'm not sure if the part numbers are the same. Check with mopar-wholesale.com They will be able to help with the harness for the doors. They are not all the same. If you can hold off until the end of Dec I can probably walk you thru it. Please PM me later if interested. Where do you live?

I will be getting the full doors with power locks and windows. I have a viper alarm with the lock/unlock option on the remote. I (think) all I will need is the wiring harness and bezel with the window switches. Does anyone know if the dealer can re-flash the computer to acknowledge the power door locks???
I live in the immediate Boston area.

Any resolution on this? I am about to purchase some full doors with power windows/locks, and I would like to have the wiring done before I pick them up.

I would like to compile a parts list if at all possible. My specs at present:
2008 2dr JK
Factory Half Doors

I had manual door and windows, full doors on my 2 door. I successfully changed them to factory electric door locks and windows, using all factory parts. Not at all cheap, but it can be done. Took me the better part of a day to swap the factory dash harness and a couple hours to change each door.

I put an electric latch in the tailgate and ran wires, but have not hooked it up yet. I can explain why/what still needs to be done.

I have the list of all the parts somewhere.

This was for a 2009.

PM me with your phone number and I will call and explain what is involved.

I've been all over the internet and finally found this. Please tell me you have a parts list! Also, how did you get a dealer to reprogram the computer?
