    I have this one on my motorcycle, and have never had a problem. It came highly recommended when I was looking, and I couldn't find a better price at the time than from that site.

    I have a Tekonsha on my 06 tacoma, Never had a problem with brake controller. Good quaility product. I did not want to mount it on the plastic dash panels, so I custom made a heavy gauge sheetmetal bracket. I mounted the bracket to the metal support of the dash and the brake controller sits to the right of the steering wheel .
