Thanks for the information..... I think they make a 4 pole to 7 pole conversion kit.. I can plug and play the existing 4 pole into the 7..and I will just need to wire in the blue.. brake wire to the controller. I guess I will have to run another wire for the trailer brakes on my trailer.. It does not sound too bad... A little soddering.. and I should be good to go.
It isn't too difficult. There is no factory wiring harness for trailer brakes like the trucks got. You'll have to run all the wiring. You'll need run +12V to the brake controller, ground for the controller, one wire on the brake controller taps into the brake light wire under the dash, and the output from the brake controller will run back to the trailer through your 7 way plug. Avoid time delay controllers, make sure you get a good one. Here is a link to a good one that doesn't cost too much. Myself and others I know have bought stuff from etrailer and they are pretty price competitive and easy to work with.
