Jeep carrier panel with large hole cut into it to fit the door lock actuator Don't do this to your Jeep!

This door lock installation was done with another "custom" Jeep door lock installation kit.

The installer hacked a huge hole in each carrier panel in order to "custom" mount the actuators.

Not only is there irreperable damage done to the doors and their integrity.  The actuators are still mounted at 30 degree angle to the lock linkage.  That translates into a short life and broken cables.

Follow the rest of this article and see how easy it is
to install a "real" custom kit that is designed
specifically for the Wrangler from A1 Electric.
