You can get the factory brake controller, and the bezel trim piece (depending on which color interior you have) from a couple different Mopar accessory stores. I ordered mine online from Mopar-wholesale cause other members here had good luck with them. My controller and bezel was around $130 delivered in a couple of days. Installation couldn't have taken more than 10 minutes.
Now I did not have mine "flashed" yet. This would allow the truck's EVIC system to recognize the brake controller and be part of the display in the dash. The controller works fine without the flash so you only need to do it if you want to see it as part of the EVIC. I almost look at it as how an aftermakrket one works. I can use a Prodigy to control my trailer brakes, but can't see it in the EVIC. The factory one just looks cleaner to me, and works great.
