I got way too good a deal on my truck to pass it up but it is the base line work truck package. Which means manual everything, which sucks. So I want to put power windows and locks and make it look factory. Just trying to see what all I will need I know new door panels, switchs . I don't know what else I need, and I have a extended cab so I will put power windows but no switches on back doors. Any help would be great.

Damn, that's some parts list. I was thinking of doing the same with my work truck, but not sure if it's going to be very cost effective. My muscle to crank doesn't cost any extra... LOL

Yeah, besides the labor I would imagine you are looking at about a $500-$1000 project max if you can find the stuff somewhere like Pull Apart and put it together yourself.

You can usually buy new window motors with tracks and everything for about $50-$75 a piece (not OEM). I would imagine you can get the harnesses for a decent price at a salvage too.

This project just sounds more labor intensive than anything. Best have a cuss jar nearby when you start trying to run all that wiring... :)

The problem I have is finding a wrecked truck to get parts from because I also want a lt2 center console. All the salvage yards here have nothing.
