Yes I was talking about the newer factory one that is in the trucks... is it doable and is it worth it? or should I just buy a normal aftermarket one and call it a day??

This makes it sound like a bolt in type install, but requires a reflash to calibrate everything.Powerstrokeshop.com I don't know much more about it other than this. The tow command works better than any other brake controller system I have used, but is it worth $250-$300 more than a simple brake controller?

I think the ford kit is around $500 and comes with a new brake master cylinder. It has a port where a sensor measures the hydrualic pressure I believe.

bull if you want electric brake controller you can get the plug in harness from ford and splice into that, the plug is on the right side under the the dash behind the fuse access panel it's very simple and can be done in less than an hour
