help reusing door disconnects

You know how google is useless unless you know the words for the bits you're searching for. Trust me, I've sent hours searching and I can't find an answer to this simple question... Please help.

I've added power locks to my JKU. Now I want to take the doors off and I realize I should have added the new wires to the existing door harness disconnect, so it's time for a quick rewire. Except I can't work out how to add wires to the disconnect.

The mopar connector has holes for about 10 wires. Stock is using 2 of them. So I should just be able to buy pins, cut my cables, crimp them, and push them in to the connector. But no pin I buy fits. Where do I get pins that fit the connectors?

thanks

Salvage or there is a mopar connector site. I have it somewhere....

I didn't look but there is a bunch of stuff available. Have needed a few tb/they break really easily.

the mopar site exists to sell you whole connectors at 1000% markup prices. I just need the pins. Shouldn't cost more than $2 for 20.

I'll call them

You might have to buy a whole connector and pins and stuff to redo the whole thing but I have one of these for my licensce plate and it has held up fine.

This is crazy. I called Mopar and they only sell the whole connector and they don't guarantee it comes with all the pins I need. Not a bad deal for nearly 4x$80!

There's lots of websites that sell pins but nobody know the dimensions I need. This should be easy.

New plan! I've spent 3 days on this. Stupid waste of time. I'm simply going to cut off the OEM parts and replace them with some $10 bits from Amazon. Job done.

Here's an email I just got suggesting the pins. YMMV

Those appear to be Delphi GT 150 series connectors. If so, the contacts are…

finally update on this topic. Those pins I posted above are not the right ones. They're close but there's no coming in second with connectors. Cut em off and start again.

Just cut the dam connector off and use a weatherpack. No sense in beating the head against the wall over and over again and again.
