Brake Controller That Fits in 2013 Dash

I'm looking to see if there is a brake controller that fits in the blank switch covers in the dash of a 2013 or if someone has retrofitted something to make the brake controller fit into the dash. thanks!

There's no factory spot for a brake controller on the pre-2014 Tundra's, and they didn't start coming from the factory with them until 2015. However, many of us have found good ways to make a nice looking setup with what we can work with. I had a Tekonsha Prodigy P3 tucked into the cubby below the HVAC controls on my 2010 Tundra. I had to remove the panel, and mound the controller to it outside the truck, and then wire it in as I assembled the panel back in the dash. Well worth the trouble though, because it was clean and out of the way when it wasn't being used.

I have a 2008 DBL Cab. Will it work for that model? Pics please. Thanks.

It's been covered multiple times on this forum... I don't have any pics of mine on demand at this very moment.

Edit: I felt like cruising around, and I found one of the pics I posted. This would work for any 2007 - 2013 Tundra with the center console and bucket seats. I don't think the same spot is there on the bench seat models.

It's not that great of a pic, I know others have done it too, and there are tons of threads out there about installing brake controllers, which ones, step by steps, etc etc.

Thanks. I appreciate the extra effort. Mine is mounted under the dash but I like the recess mount better.
