Tekonsha P3 brake controller. Can I borrow your brains?

Need your brains for a moment.
Have an 06 4x4 DCSB with tow package. I am confused as to whether or not I need to buy a harness adapter for my Tekonsha P3 brake controller. I have done searches, etc but am not quite clear on it. How would I install it without buying the harness? I bought a used P3 that also came with a Dodge harness.
Thanks guys!!!

Oh yeah, also. Noticed this brake controller harness is cheap, but says it is for 2007-2011. I have an 06. Does the 07 wire up differently? This I have not searched yet, sorry.

I replied to your PM, but will post up here too.

No, you do not NEED the vehicle specific harness. I wired mine with the factory pigtail (included when you bought the truck) and it works fine.

Here is how I did it.

I believe I wired mine like this (can't actually see my splices because they are tucked up in the dash in wire loom) but after looking at the wiring diagrams for both I am pretty this is how I did mine.

Factory pigtail color P3 pigtail
Black with red tracer (thick)------> Black (thick)
Solid Brown----------------------> White
Green w/white tracer-------------> Red
Red (thick)----------------------> Blue (thick)
Solid Green----------------------> Does not connect to P3 pigtail (tape up out of the way)

Hope that helps.

I am installing at this moment.

Regarding ground wire. So the brown wire goes to the white wiring from the Prodigy3. I don't need run those wires to a metal piece?

I have a 2012 with tow package.
