You probably already have stock door latches. If your door striker looks like the picture below, you do. If they are like that, then all you have to do is remove the solenoid and wiring and replace your handles, which means you'll have to find a door that you can take measurements off of, for the location of the new door handle. Hope this helps.

Yeah, the "remote" part has nothing to do with the "latch" part. HOWEVER, it is very common for people to switch over to "bear claw" latches. If this is the case, it is likely some "surgery" was done to the doors and or jambs and you will not be able to just swap back.

Martinsr, I mentioned that in my first typing of this, however when I sent it out, it wouldn't go, said my attachment was wrong, so i rewrote it and it wouldn't go again. Took me four times to do this, needless to say I was upset. Each time I wrote it it got shorter. Thanks for bringing it up.
