Trailer Brake Control


Asked by 08sdf450 Aug 23, 2011 at 08:44 PM about the 2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty Lariat Crew Cab 4WD

Question type: Car Customization

I have A 2008 SDF-450 with factory installed brake controller that doesn't work with trailers that have  electric over hydraulic brakes! The 2011 model of the same now claims to work with most mfg of the above brakes. The question is are the two brake controllers interchangeable and if so any part numbers and what might this swap entail?
