Tekonsha prodigy or tekonsha P3 are the only way to go. Those are the next best thing to the factory ones in the 05 up trucks

I've got Jordan Ultima

Best Brake Controller

and it's the best brake controller I've ever used including the Tekonsha prodigy and P3. Unfortunately they seem to be having some sort of business issue and they're between models right now so I'd have to recommend either the P3 or the Prodigy.

I had a tekonsha prodigy on my old truck. The one I have now came with the tow command. Hands down the best controller out there for the money is the prodigy or P3.

The cool thing is that most controllers out there are plug-n-play. There is a connector under the center section of the dash the controller cable plugs into so there is not splicing wires!
