You can install yourself but will need dealer to reconfigure your computer. Reasonable labor would 1.5 hours complete. Tell Jason Coach Klein referred you. Good luck!
THANKS! I called Jason this morning, nice guy, he said he has gotten alot of inquiries off the forum. He has the parts on order for me. The switch is 3-4 day wait, the module is on backorder, maybe 2-3 weeks. I plan on doin a self install, then a trip to the dealer to get the flash.

This is good to know. My dealer was pushing the brake controller claiming it could NOT be added after the fact. I don't have a trailer that would require it but I like to keep my options open if I ever changed my mind. However, I don't like ordering things that I don't really want and I don't like being pushed into something!

This is great information. Saved me $240

New to the forum and my RAM, any way I can tell if my truck is wired for the brake controller without taking it to the dealership? It has the tow-package, I'm assuming from the factory, but it could be a dealer-installed option as well. Thanks in advance!

Once the OEM integrated brake controller is installed inside in the center console, it has to be Flashed by the dealership, so the Ram knows that it is installed

In post #7 of this thread http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=129587 you will see a picture of the connectors in my 2013 SLT.
Those are the connectors for the brake controller.

Default Install help

I plan on doing a self install, then take the truck to the dealer for the computer flash. Has anyone installed the switch and can tell me the proper way to remove the bezel and install? I would rather not do the trial and ERROR (read break something) method. Thanks
