I have a 96 Tacoma with manual locks and windows. I want to convert it
to power locks. I would also like to add an alarm system. Are most
products compatible? Will actuators from one company work with modules
from other companies? Should I try to get everything from the same
company? I'm new to power lock and alarm installation. I've done quite
a few car stereo installations with multiple amp and crossover
configurations so I'm pretty sure that I could figure out the wiring and
installation. Am I wrong? Should I let someone else do it?

What are your opinions?

Thanks,
Dante

Assuming you are talking about aftermarket power window and lock conversion
kits, I would search for one that lists which vehicles they will fit rather
than a "universal" one because I would think that a universal one can
involve a lot of cutting and fabricating. If you know the difference
between positive and negative and can use a volt meter, I would not expect
the installation to be technically difficult.

Shop around. All alarm companies offer add-ins, such as lock actuators,
etc that will allow you do change the vehicle as desired. Even the
cheapest Audiovox ($49-65, depending) has 'options' for power lock
actuators, etc.
