Non-stock power windows/locks/mirrors

I've been wanting to swap out everything for power windows/locks and mirrors for awhile and at a time I was considering doing a factory swap but that just seems like to much work because I don't want to have to swap out the whole dash and engine harness. Have any of you guys ever used a kit that allows you to switch out your manual locks and windows for power ones? If so what is a good kit? I don't care if I don't have the factory key fob because I will be installing a command start soon anyways, also is there any kit that allows you to have power mirrors?

Yeah I saw that, seems good to me but I don't know if I would be able to hook those up to a remote start system because usually with those they lock the doors for you when you start the truck. Also is there a kit I can get to make my mirrors power mirrors? Or could I just get new mirrors and would they plug from the switch to the mirror then to a power supply?

What about the idea that a lot of people on this site have done, use the stock OEM stuff and run new power wires to it.

Sorry I would have to search to locate the postings but that is what I intend to do; leave all of the existing wiring as is and run new power, that way if something goes wrong you only need to ring out what you installed.

I almost did that. I had everything including door wiring with switches but I decided not to bother with it. I traded it all for a Dreamcast. LOL
