Default 2013 Ram 1500 Trailer Brake Controller help

I just bought a 2013 Ram 1500 Big Horn. It did not have a brake controller installed from the factory. When I asked the dealer to install one I was told that the trailer brake controller is not available yet? I have read that the wiring is different from previous model years also. Does anyone know anything about this and when a controller that matches the 2013 wiring will be available?

The 2013 Rams are very different from earlier Rams in many ways, most are hidden like the new Integrated Brake Controller

the new 2013 brake controller is in the center dash, it looks like this



the 2009 - 2012 brake controller is located above the emergency brake release
it looks like this

There are a couple of threads in the 2013 section with all the info on how to add one.
