mrroader14 is on a distinguished road

I was back at dealer today for the bedliner and pigtail they promised. i got that stuff. i figured i would ask about the brake controller again while i was there. they seemed offended about the one at mopar-wholesale, saying aftermarket aftermarket, not dodge, no warranty. i showed them same part #, OEM, but 50 bucks less. then they proceeded to inform me that if your truck did not come with a factory controller u can never have one that will work with the EVIC. Because trucks with factory installed controllers have different gauge clusters and different computers and such. i find it hard to believe that they would make a completely different gauge cluster just for a brake controller, or a different computer. My brain tells me that if it has a EVIC and a hitch, u should be able to add a controller and turn it on somewhere to show up in the EVIC. atleast they didnt try an sell me turn signal fluid !!!

latitud will become famous soon enough

I guess all of us with success stories just got lucky to have the exact right combination of guage clusters, evics, computers, tire inflation pressures, interior color, oil weight, spark plugs, lug nut torque...
Personally I would find a new dealer, but good luck with them. I can recommend one in VA that will have no problem accepting your business and flashing the EVIC for you.
