Default Dodge Express

I needed a regular cab short bed pickup ( the only size that would fit in my garage). The only one available in my area of any manufacture was a Dodge Express. I liked everything about it except it had manual door locks and wind up windows. I thought I could live with that so I bought it. Love the truck, but could not deal with the manual door locks. Yesterday I installed remote electric locks from Auto loc. It took about 6hrs. and they work great.

No, I don't use the window that much. But it was a bitch to reach across to lock or unlock the passenger door.

Yeah I had a cobalt with manual locks and windows. You never know how handy electric ones are until you don't have it. Don't understand why they even put in manual ones anymore it's not the 80's!

Very true! ^^^ but hey, there still some base models that still come with a tape player and not a CD player. That dosnt make much sense either.

I was amazed at the package when I saw it. Coming from a Mercedes C350 Sport to a vehicle w/ no power windows, door locks or seats was quite a shock. The only reason I bought it was I like the look, the power and the 4 wheel drive. It also has Sirius radio. I really like the truck except the one thing I couldn't deal with was the manual locks, so for $120 I now have remote elec. locks. Dealer said it couldn't be done.
