Default TruControl Brake Controller

Has anyone installed or used this brake controller on their RAM? For the claims, $157 isn't bad...I was thinking of the silver, being only a 1500 and all. Thoughts?

Thanks

Kind of expensive for an aftermarket controller at thier suggested retail price of $250.00. After reading through the goobly gook language they use on the website to describe the controller, it is not really different then others.

If iI were you, I would have the factory controller installed or purchase a Prodigy 2 or 3. Prodigy really sets the standard when it comes to aftermarket brake controls and they are cheaper then the Trucontrol.

Yes on the Tekshona Prodigy 2 or 3, they make a damn good brake controller for less $$. I have the Prodigy 2 and it works flawlessly.

I just went ahead ordered the Prodigy 2; I looked at the P3 but it seemed like it was more than I'll ever need for 1/2 ton. Should be here next week.
