hey guys! ive driven my truck since i bought it in highschool! love the damn thing! BULLETPROOF! its a 3.0L edge. its not riding stock height as i took the lift off for gas mileage.
so now onto the goods, i Installed power locks onto it a while back when i installed the crimestoper alarm and remote start. I will get pics of that all after i finish the power windows.
Ive searched and searched and searched EVERYWHERE for decent price parts to do a OEM swap. hit the junk yard etc. BUT to no avail. Then i read about universal power window kits, cheap yes, quality questionable. Many people have issues with heavy large windows but hey a ford ranger window is nothing! So i ordered this kit from amazon:
got it in one day as i live in california. upon opening the drivers where nice. looked decent for the price. not to sure about the plastic gears to fit on the OEM roll up mechanism but hey i will find out!
the switches are just fine, they come in massive housing! BUT the switches will fit onto the door without the housing :0 simple as cut a little bondo sand clean and paint and bam flush switches!
so here are a few pics of what i have done so far with my little time:
to get the two switches out of the main holder you ahev to de-solder three wires. easy. just make sure you label them
whats left on the secondary switch wire wise. note that you have to keep it this way untill the switches are in place on the plastic trim piece by the handle!
one part of the main switch has this here plastic piece for easy attatchment to the main power/ground wires etc. take out the pins so you can pull the wires from the bulky housing and make a drawing or label the placing
Now you have this :
the three switches ready to go.
stay tuned for more
