Brake controller for GC Overland MY14 - where?

Hi, We pick up our new GC Overland this week, we've swapped the wheels to the 18" off the Laredo, bought the tow pack and now I need to get a brake controller fitted. We are based in Victoria, Aust.
Can someone advise on the best place to fit and the brand that I should consider using.
thanks very much.

Hi Aussie Jeep, you will find that a lot of the forum members are using the tekonsha P3 fitted into the cubby hole just above the media readers. I had mine installed by a company called TOSSA in Pakenham cost about $280.00, and the tekonsha was bought off ebay from an auto electrical place in Bairnsdale for approx $160.00 delivered within two days. There is also a dedicated Aussie towing thread.
The Towing thread
Hope this is of some help.

Excellent news. Thanks for the info. We are near Berwick so Pakenham is great.

If you want someone to talk to at TOSSA ask for Paul, he organised everything for me. Took approx 3-4 hours to do the install, but mine was the the first My 14 that they had fitted a controller to.
