how to add keyless entry, maybe even alrm.

okay im fixing all my door locks this weekend pretty sure this truck doesn't have key-less entry, how would i go about adding it? and also how would i go about adding maybe an alarm system as well maybe with a panic button and all the goodies you know,

Is anybody using some of the Ebay kits like omega, crimestopper, k-9. wondering if theyre any good??

what all do i need for the door lock part? is a system going to come with new actuators?? or just a wire? do i need a special kit for 4 doors? or what lol i see all these kits but i dont know what parts i need to make sure are included??

also a good site to buy a decent system at a budget lol

Thanks

also its an early 99

Buy a Viper kit off ebay and have a shop install it..
Because I promise you that once you open the box thinking "I can do this" you'll realize that paying someone a couple $$$ do it
is waaaay worth the money.. That's what I did. Diesels aren't friends with remote starters but a professional can get it working right.
Once installed they usually have a few quirks that need to be worked out and you can just take it back to them.

just wiring and the receiver stuff..
If the doors don't unlock by themselves now, they won't after you install this..
If the actuators are shot, then you need new ones. I dunno why Ford door locks suck so bad during those yrs.. oh well
