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.
