Unless you have a W/T version of the truck, all the wiring should be present for power windows and locks. I think the power windows are on either a 20 or 25 amp circuit breaker labeled A or B in the cab fuse panel.

I think you can just run haywires to the switches, but you have to get a circuit breaker for these. I don't think you can fuse it, because the fuse will get hot for the duration of time it takes for the window to roll up. I believe they are 15 or 20 amp breakers.

Edit** Christopher you da man, beat me by 1 min 2 secs. OP, follow Crawdaddys post. If the loom is in there, then definitely go that route.
