Brake Controller

I know this has been discussed but I can't find it.

What color and how many wires are attached to the OEM plug under the dash panel (fuse panel cover)? I see one plug kind of underneath the radio area but don't know if it is the right one.

I also need to know which brake contoller/equalizer unit is a plug and play?

I wired the OEM 7 blade harness at the rear of the truck the other day as it still had the factory protective ends on the wires. Thus I know my truck has never towed a heavy load.

Go to your local parts store and get a pigtail adapter that is pre-wired with the correct Ford plugs, then just plug the controller in and your done. There is no splicing involved doing this.

This controller rocks, single axle scamp trailer or my 30K quad hauler, this controller adjusts and I don't have to think about it. Well worth the money, even if it does seem high in price. I did some quick looking and here is a pretty good deal on ebay, its basically 96 after shipping brand new.
