6.0 upfitters and tbc install

I just bought an upfitter switch package from Dennis at strictly diesel and he has done a good job providing info but I'm a visual learner... So who has installed one of these on an 02 and has some pictures? I've read that the fuse box is the same so hopefully that part will be easy but the more info I can get the better and of course....PICTURES!!!!

Also I've read about a trailer brake controller install kit for the 6.0 tbc? Where can I find one (I've looked on eBay but maybe did the wrong search? Idk!) and who's installed one? Also PICTURES!!!!

I'm 99% sure I figured out the upfitters through a couple wiring diagrams and fuse locations but I'm having some issues with the trailer brake controller.

I've got most of it but 2 things-
1) there are 2 wires that connect to the computer data terminal, the HS CAN + and HS CAN - wires. Where do these connect to in the 02 data terminal? That's the PCM right? And the PCM will have to have to be flashed to read it?

2) the wires that connect to the brake pressure transducer. Can I just install one of these inline with the current pressure switch, with a T, that's on the 02 master cylinder?

Can any of our vendors chime in if programming the PCM for the controller is necessary and doable?

no help on how to hook it up but
the whole master is a different part number on a TBC 6.0 and of course the PCM needs programmed

So just wanted to give an update.

I've got everything in now to put this in my 02, here's a list of the parts
Riffraff F650 underdash
6.0 upfitter switches
6.0 trailer brake control
Dakota Digital 5 sender gauge

Thanks to this lovely place in Fresno, they hooked me up with the factory pigtail for the TBC, the brake pressure transducer and its pigtail and a donor 6.0 under dash for the mounting.

I'm planning on epoxying the 6.0 upfitter and TBC hole to the bottom of the Riffraff under dash, but its my first time doing any kind of thing like this so I'm going to be taking my time.

For wiring the upfitters and TBC I got a donor (Pick-n-Pull) fuse box so I can trace down the unused fuses in my box so I don't have to have an extra fuse panel. The 7.3 fuse box has 4 or 5 power point locations, all hot, all fused in a crew cab pick up, so unless someone can tell me where they are (other than the dash one) I'm planning on using them. Pictures will be coming......

For the upfitters i opted NOT to use factory wiring, there relays and power options sucked, i made my own harness and ran them as trigger wires for 30amp relays, now instead of being stuck with different power for different switches i can hook anything up to any switch.

Love my upfitters!

UPDATE!!!!

I tracked down all the fuse locations for the 6.0 fuse box in my 02 box and I'm not using ANY of them. The only part that will be a minor issue is the relay that powers the upfitters in the box (305) is for the trailer battery charge in the 02, so that one will just a the (for lack of a better term) excite wire for the upfitters piggy backed on to it.

I took the 650 dash and cut it up today (if you read this, sorry Clay!) and started to mold on the upfitters and trailer brake controller hole from the 6.0 dash. Here are some pics of that! Just need a little more epoxy and some sanding then paint!!

Also put together what will be an updated fuse box layout for when its all done. If anyone is interested in that, PM me and I will email it to you

Do you have enough roon for that or does it hit the floor? Hit the 4x4 lever? Can you post a picture of it just sitting in its place?
