Alarm

Do you have to have automatic locks to get a alarm system. I have manuel locks and was wondering if it would work.

u could probably get a cheap viper on ebay. Since you dont have power door locks that alarm install should be simple as hell

Some people say that if you get these, door lock actuators, then you can have the doors that lock.

I had manual locks to begin with. When I had my Audiovox alarm installed, I also had the door actuators installed. Now I have keyless entry.

I think in the 2 1/2 years I have had my truck I have put the key in the door maybe six times, less chance of scratching the door around the key hole. I like it.
