Adding factory brake controller

Recommended Posts

Looks like you can add an OEM and have the factory program it. 

This is only installing the switch in the dash. The brake controller goes above the spare tire. I can't find any dealer that will program or install the factory one.

Condition

Some customers may request the factory Integrated Trailer Brake Controller (RPO JL1) be installed on their Full-Size Pickup or SUV when the vehicle was not ordered with the option. 

This is to advise you that, if the vehicle does not have the option (RPO JL1), it cannot be added to the vehicle.

FWIW The aftermarket, under dash controller offered by your dealer will work well and will disappear from sight when the novelty wears off.  I no longer tow a trailer with brakes and could easily remove my "plug 'n play" controller but it's not worth the effort..

Apparently NOT! Here he is installing a Curt Spectrum in place of his failed attempt at the OEM ITBC.
