Shoulda bought a Ford I got one with mine, then again you can buy the one from Prodigy for something around $9 that already has the factory plug on it.

Had installed a "BrakeSmart" from Master Brake Systems about a year ago. Had a Prodigy before that. The BrakeSmart is an improvement of the first magnitude. It taps into the brake line so sense line pressure. Works with anti-lock brakes.

I tow a 34' classic limited with a 2003 Excursion. The difference cannot be overexaggerated. HIGHLY recommended.

I installed my first Jordan Ultima brake controller last spring. I consider it the best unit I have ever used. I think my dealer was so impressed when he did his test drive with my new Classic, he may begin to stock them.

The install was easy. I picked my up from a dealer on E-bay at a cost just over $100. Here is a link to Jordan Research's web page. http://www.jordanbrake.com/INDEX.html

The standard 6 wires harness on Y2K half ton Silverados don't have a brake control wire only the 7 wire harness have it...(that's what owner manual says)
I have the prodigy harness, but it will be useless as there is no brake wire on the truck

The Jordan requires no connection to the brake light line since it works off of a direct cable connection above brake pedal. That's part of what makes this controller so neat. Its not triggered by the presence of voltage but on the depression of the pedal itself. The more pressure you apply to the pedal the greater the braking power to the trailer brakes.

I have a Prodigy brake controller and Reese hitch and have been very pleased.

I agree 100%. The BrakeSmart is fantastic ... very smooth and natural feeling.

The installation was clean and simple. Great product.
