Converting manual door locks to power

Does anyone have any idea how to do this? I have a '09 JKU and the guy trying to install it is saying it can't be done bcd the window panel won't come off unless u break it. I know they make kits for '07-'11 JKUs so it has to be possible. I just need some guidance. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I can get you a link to a kit if that'd help. Just have to ask IJump where it is...

Did it in my TJ and wired them into aftermarket alarm system for key-less entry and lock and unlock during arming and disarming. I think I bought my kit off Ebay. There are many places to get that kind of stuff here in CA.

Can you please describe how you were able to remove the secondary panel-the one that houses the window mechanism? That's where we r stuck. It seems the two white caps or whatever they r called will bust off if u try removing that panel.

Saw this randomly, and am interested in doing this.
Any guidance on how you did this? Or what to even search for when trying to find the aftermarket kits for this conversion?
I have an aftermarket keyless entry/alarm already and just need to get something that works with my new Jeep. Just bought a 2014 Jeep Wrangler unlimited.

Did you ever figure this out?

I did a step by step how-to for my LJ. Not the same as a JK, but it might give you some ideas.
