Found this for a good deal, not going for the look but if you are this seems interesting.

Yeah, not bad.
15# solenoids area little on the weak side but once you take the outside handle rod out it dosen't take much to pop the latch.
Those solenoids probably will not work on a 92-99 rear door. There is a significantly longer travel required with the rear latch. Typical solenoids won't have enough range of motion. I never hooked up poppers to my rear doors because of this..
I'd also recommend (at least for the 92-99 crowd) to not install the springs that push the doors out after the latch has been opened. The spring works agianst the latch and makes it harder for it to be popped. They have to be set up perfect and when the cables stretch, they keep having to be re adjusted. I took the springs out and I didn't have to adjust the cables after that at all.
When the latch pops, the door opens enough to put your fingers behind there anyway, so they aren't really needed in the first place.

And if your thinking about shaving the handles start practicing yelling at people for slamming your doors now. I had sheet metal welded in, fiberglass over that, and putty over that and they ended up cracking because of door slamming..
