Power windows...which kit

When I build up my new Puma doors I want to put power windows in...one kit uses a device that attaches to the manual winder in replacement of the handle....the other is replacement of the regulators with true power units...of course that is the best way, but BIG diffrence in price...anyone use the first option?

I just went with a Viper keyless entry system and two carling switches for my Puma doors. It unlocks with a fob and there are other options like dome light activation, horn, etc. I don't recall the model number but can find it if interested. It was around $50

Edit: These were already power windows, but I didn't have the LR controls

I'm pretty sure I have two Spal window conversion kits sitting on a shelf in the garage. At the time my research pointed to them being among the best. I can go into the boxes if you have specific questions.

More reviews please. I would love to be able to put the passenger window up/down while driving or coming to park.


Anyone have this one? Not sure what the difference is about 95+ cards? Door cards are the same I think

Britpart kit for $184 (says 2002+ though)

I wound up purchasing from the UK the power regulators...I am sure the SPAL units would work well, but i am building new PUMA doors from the ground up so went that way...

I think I might just use the SPAL kit that uses the existing regulators. My door speakers are pretty beefy and don't feel like dealing with issues. I am going to mount the two switches in the face of the cubby, should look pretty clean.
