    Electric Trailer Brake hookup for silverado help

    Sorry if this seems retarded but I have no experience in this area.

    I have an 04 silverado and want to make it so it can use electric trailer brakes.

    My dad has a 07 new body style silverado brand new and wants to make his use electric trailer brakes.

    Any advice as to what we have to do?

    I heard mine has a special wire kit in the glove box.. and I heard the new 07's you have to buy something else for?

    Thank you very much in advance for ANY advice!

    Good advice in the link posted above. Depending on the controller you buy they may have a vehicle specific harness for your truck. For example, I am partial to Tekonsha controllers. My Voyager has a harness made to plug directly into the back of the controller and to the truck.
