    I'd like one, too.. except I have an aftermarket American Autowire wiring harness.

    That's no problem-you simply need a fused BAT source for power and an IGN slot for triggering the main relay control for the auto down/up harness.

    I PM'd the tracking info!

    Keep in mind with this kit you need to make sure whatever aftermarket/billet switches you use must be NO (normally open) @ rest. This way the relay upgrade w/auto down and up will function exactly like any new vehicle. While the window is traveling in either direction while in express mode, a quick tap of the switch button either down or up will stop the window immediately. So if you plan to run 2 rocker style switches, you'll see there are 3 wires per switch-a ground input, a down trigger output and an up trigger output. Let me know if you have any questions-it's a super easy install-and I included the correct pack con IGN and BAT connectors to use with your AAW update fuse panel.

    There's no reason to use anybody else's window kits when this one gives you much, much more for the $$!

    Great thread, I'm looking to change to power windows as well, I may have missed something, which motors and regulators did you end up using, I watched your tube, GM motors never worked that well, looks like a really good upgrade.
