The biggest advantage of Slick Locks is they're easily installed, no drilling or cutting whatsoever. Also completely reversible with little to no signs of them ever having been in place.
Never heard of the Thunderbolt locks but they seem to have all the attributes of a good deadbolt----that makes them a strong contender IMHO.
I will say the Thunderbolt's and those I've linked to previously have on downside as received----the cable between the bolt and actuator tend to be entirely too long for the E-Series side and rear doors. The extra or unnecessary cable & sheath length added too much resistance to the push/pull action I wanted to minimize giving the actuators and easier chore. This is expected since that extra length typically ends up in a coil---this adds to the force required to engage/disengage the lock bolt and takes up room inside the door shell we all know can be used for better things.
A company in CA did the work for me, charges were under $50 for both shipped, lead time 2 weeks or so. IIRC I kept the replaced sheaths for some reason, they're tuck away in one of those places I'm sure I'd never forget. That was then, this is now and I have no idea where they are.
