Does anyone have a part number?
According to my local parts manager, an "official" retrofit kit will never be made available from Chrysler/Dodge. I see some dealers are offering kits online, but the part numbers shown for the controllers do not match for the ITBM. I'd be cautious and ask first if the controller in these kits is the true Integrated Trailer Brake Module (Dodge part #56029431AH) for in-dash installation. I suspect the kits are using an aftermarket unit, which is likely a perfectly good proportional controller, just not the one made to go in the dash by Dodge.

Also I think that all I really need to use on the 'B' connector is the B3 pin for power if I don't want to use the evic features, is this true?
Not true. All three pins of the "B" connector have to be wired for the ITBM to work regardless of whether you intend to have the EVIC reprogrammed or not.
