i used a HAM radio quick disconnect that had four prongs for my disscounects. the good thing about them is they have a threaded part so you plug em together then screw. wiring it up was a pain in the *** but i did it the hard way I think.

I went to the local truck parts shop and the guy gave me a handful of crimp-on bullet connectors, then I went to Radioshack and picked up a pack of heat shrink.

I'll be going out there to take the door panel off in a couple minutes. I'll take some pics, too.

Well, I took my door panels off today and there are only 5 wires in there. I don't have power anything, btw. I used a T-15 bit to get the window crank screw out. I'm not going to use any extra wire, cause there is plenty of slack in there already.

Here's the pics. Sorry for the crappy quality, my battery was low.

I'd pay 150-200 for a set plus shipping, if that helps. But I drop that much on mods every paycheck. Oh, yeah. I'll be taking the doors off monday and probably tuesday, too to get some practice putting them back on.
