Adding power locks to my base Taco

so i have decided to add power locks to my base model tacoma because i want to add an alarm system to my truck and i was wondering if anyone out there as ever done this to their trucks? I was thinking of going with the Audiovox PROPDL25 as it seems like the cheapest option and it seem to wor just fine. I just wanted to get some suggestions from you guys out there. Maybe there is a better way to go about this.Also if you guys could suggest an alarm system that will get the job done thats would be great as i was just going to get a viper system but i havent really done any serious reseach on any other brands. Anyways any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks



Oh and here is he link to the power doors that i will be adding in the very near future

I did this to my old f350. its actually easy to do. i did 4 door locks, i got a kit similar to what you are looking at for $50 on ebay and they seemed to work great. i had it on the truck for 6 months and then i sold the truck, and they always worked, no problems. I would recommend running the wire to your door locks through the factory rubber wire door holder, (the rubber tube that hinges in your door, if you have one) it will look way cleaner.
ive never done an alarm system, hopefully someone will chime in. just remember to add a fuse if the kits dont come with one from the box to the battery.

Get a remote starter and 2 stock door lock actuators. I installed power locks on my 2004 Chevy this way. The polarity on the Chevy locks is 'reversing' so I had to install relays to get the locks to function correctly.
