    Hello,

    I have 2014 Tacoma, Dbl cab, TRD with the tow package. I would like to install an electronic break controller. In my current model, it's already wired for the controller, I just need to buy the controller. I do not tow very much, but I do rent a travel trailer a couple of times per year. Any recommendations on an easy to use model for guy who isn't a pro at electronic brake controllers, and towing. Thanks.

    I had the primus IQ on my 2005 Tundra. Its nice because you don't have to level it out like the more primitive controllers. Easy to adjust the gain and see how much braking force you're doing. That pig tail is nice too, just plug it into controller and plug into your truck. No splicing of any kind. Im pretty sure thats the correct pigtail for the Tacoma. With these two items it really is just plug and play.

    Teconsha voyger mid price range easy install, { I mounted it in the cubby to the right of the steering wheel} easy to adjust and pretty much out of sight. You can get it plug and play but I chose to hard wire it to the harness that Toyota provided and save a few bucks.
