I am curious to know weather the factory Dodge brake contoller did in fact plug and play. My dealer is telling me that while they may plug in alright, they may not play as needed without some "reconfiguration" with the trucks' program. By the way my truck is a 2010 ctd. I don't know wether the diesel is configured differently or not. Any help would be much apreciated.

The controler fits so good/tight I didn't have to drill any holes and the harness plugged right in. It sticks out about 1.5"s...just enough so I can use the buttons/controls but not so much where I hit my knee on it b/c of how high the location is.
How did you get that trim piece of?? Wanting ti do the same setup. Have the same controller. Thanks
