Adding Power door locks

My '04 Colorado is pretty basic and didn't come with power locks. Not having a key hole to open the passenger side is quite inconvenient at times. I'm considering installing power locks. There are lots of kits out there starting at about $25.00. Is there anything in particular I need to look for? Seems pretty straight forward, but just looking to see if anyone out there has done this and if there were any problems.
Thanks for the help,

It's a small world............but I'd hate to have to paint it!!

I did it many years ago, put them in with alarms/keyless entries. You say there is a kit? Should have a motor for each door, set of relays, and switches. Its a pretty straight forward install on most cars. If you arent thinking of doing it go for an alarm with keyless entry to go with it.

A kit for $25 could provide you with more grief than you want, research the products available and read customer responses. I just paid $130 for a electronic tailgate lock for my 2017 Denali that simply connevts to the existing system, i wwould think a good systtem for the two doors would run about the same.
