hello everyone. have a question about power windows. i want to install them in my 1981 blazer. it has manual windows now. would it be possible to use the motors from a late model truck, say 2001 and newer? i am getting new door panels that have the original switches to keep the stock look on the interior but wanted to add some reliable motors and stronger motors than the ones from that truck era. hope you can help. Confused

Hi,I"ve always used *** power window parts,from the local scrap yard,they"re strong enough for truck windows,I fitted them to a 66 chevy C10,Even a 78 C10 never had any trouble with them.When you go the scrap yard see if the guy in charge will let you remove them yourself, that way you can get more of the original wiring,nuts + bolts etc.As we say over here,"there a piece of piss to fit" and you should get the bits you want at a fraction of the price of an aftermarket kit.
