Power windows and locks install 2 door jk

Looking at doing this next, anybody survive this? I'm hearing horror stories about mopar wiring being impossible to work with? I have no experience with wiring diagrams etc. But I feel like the places where the regulators and mechanical parts go will be there just void of the extra fixins

I'm interested in this as well. I bought an expedition style trailer that was made from a totaled 4-door JK. They chopped off the front, leaving the rear doors and rear seat intact.

The doors have manual windows but power locks with a pigtail sticking out. I'm pretty sure it's just 2 wires. Seems like applying 12 volts one way would cause the doors to lock and reversing the polarity would cause them to unlock.

On the switch side, I'm not sure, are the door locks controlled by the ECU/TIPM/CANBUS? I've seen threads before of folks with windows and lock that are not working, leading me to believe they do indeed get controlled by the computer systems.

If so the OP might be better off using some Jeep door lock actuators, with an aftermarket switch configuration. Maybe the same for adding power windows.

Hmm. Maybe I'll call the dealership and see if it's even possible if nobody here has done it then

Nothing came of this. I have taken on a ridiculously large project now and will probably go bankrupt because of it. I am selling my jeep now if anyone is interested

I have finally got to the bottom of the door wiring. On my 4dr it works like this.

Front doors have 8 wires.
Power windows and the door locks (4 wires total) work as you describe. 12v+/- one way the door locks or the window go up, switch 12v+/- and they do the opposite. That's 4 of the wires, the two biggest are the windows.

Then you have 2 wires that close a circuit when the door is closed, I assume these would run to the TIPM to turn on the interior lights and turn on the dash light to let you know a door is open.

Then there is the little switch on the door panel to lock all (4)the doors. 2 wires run from this switch right out the pigtail, probably to the TIPM to tell it to lock all 4 doors. It does nothing inside the door.

Rear doors have 6 wires. All the same as above, but without the little switch to lock all the doors.
