Installation about 30 minutes. No leg banging...easy access to manual brake control...smooth as silk...can't imagine another controller being smoother. Worked as advertised 2 weeks ago with an emergency stop from 60 mph in the rain...straight and true and powerful. Plus I can move it to a new vehicle when the time comes.

Someone mentioned the OEM was "far superior"...I definitely disagree.
Leg banging? The factory unit? Nope. Way to flush for that. This unit is in the way. Knee, center compartment etc...

He was replying to those who feel the aftermarket controllers are knee-bang magnets (with the typical left-side install, like mine). He's just showing that's not the case with his install location.

If one is using the aftermarket controller that looks like the ideal location. No knee-banging and really easy to reach the controls.
