    I have done all the hi-pro mods for a life time, since I got this truck at a great price, I will be happy with showroom new.
    I just dont know about this>>>>>>>>>>

    when I worked for my uncle he always used Tekonsha, because they had never let him down.
    I dont think i would trust a network system like this with what could be my life towing something, or someone else.
    If its wired up right from the beginning, from the front to the rear with good quality stuff, then it will last.
    i still dont trust alot of wireless things.

    Here's where I mounted my prodigy p2. Haven't towed with it yet though. Going camping in a few weeks so will try it then. Also got my scangauge set up showing trans temps.

    Tekonsha Prodigy P2. Been using it for about a year, and love it. Simple, works well, decent price.

    I honestly couldn't tell you at this point It was a cheap brand that was readily available at the time when I really needed one. I have plans to replace it with a better one when I have a little extra money.
