I bought a Hayes G2. It's a Tri Axis proprotional, less than $110. Another good one would be a P3 but thought this one fit the location better.

I just mounted my Tekonsha in the factory location. It doesn't look as nice as the factory optioned one but I think it'll work. I removed the piece of trim then used a dremel, file and utility knife to cut out the back of the panel. 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.

Make sure what ever you buy the harness is correctly. I bought a P3 but the pig tail was wired wrong. Got that mess figured out no more error messages
