get one that can be mounted at multiple angles. digital display is nice. also some manufacturers have plug and play connectors under the dash. like 2000s dodge rams, check before you start running and cutting wires

Thanks the Tekonsha P3 is the one I keep going back too...... Pulling a outback double axle about 7000 to 8000 depending. The truck has the wiring per wired under the dash. Just wondering about the different brands if anyone had a favorite one.

I've been pulling RVs for 34 years and had a few different brands/types through the years. The best aftermarket is the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 or P3. My Ram 2500 came with a factory installed brake controller. While the factory controller works well, I honestly liked the Prodigy controller over the factory controller, even to the point where I considered installing a Prodigy P3 and disabling the factory controller.

Make sure the one you want works with the type of brakes on the trailer you plan to pull.

I have the P3 in my 07 Tundra works great as long as the brakes on the trailer are adjusted correctly
