    I traded up for a Tekonsha P3. I guess they're pretty expensive, but its way cool. Rather than a long list, look it up on their site - it does everything.
    They have pigtails available for all sorts of vehicles. Plug n play! I wired the plug direct on my 99 Sub, but we bought the 12~15 dollar pigtail for a 04 Ram to pull a trailer, and the controller plugs right in.
    That reminds me, I have to get a pigtail for my wifes 02 Sub.

    Good luck,

    I haven't been keeping up with the newer controlers...Ive been running a Tekonsha Voyager for the past 15 years or so, but my buddy is using a Prodigy and raves about it....I probably should think about a new one too

    I have a Voyager in my Blazer and Suburban, but the Prodigy in my Silverado is by far the better controller and with the vehicle specific pigtail it is simple plug and play and no wire splicing.

    What makes the prodigy superior to others? Just wondering.

    ...you adjust it to your liking once, and never have to touch it again, my old voyager I need to back of the adjustments when going from highway to around town driving...the highway setting I have is more aggresive than I would use around town.
