I'm not understanding what your question is. You have a '99 so you do not have a factory brake controller.

I just installed a Tekonsha P3 in my dually with a plug and play harness. I like it.

My truck also doesn't have the integrated brake controller and I have used the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 and now upgraded to the P3. I SWEAR by the Prodigy units and won't buy any other brand. They are VERY simple to install with the included wiring harness and since you have the tow package, it just plugs right in.

It shouldn't. The facorty TBC isn't part of the engine, transmission, or smog equipment. I'm actually about to ditch the factory TBC for a P3.

I'll let you know how it turns out. We have a P3 in my wife's truck and are very happy with it. The factory TBC in my 05 F250 is starting to act up and my goal is to mount a P3 in that location while keeping the OEM look.

Just a quick question. I bought a P2 for my 2006 F350. Can you tell me where under the dash I can plug the plug-n-play into. The truck has an older electric brake but it looks like it was hard wired in.

Thanks for any info.
