It may be a Redarc supplied unit?Looks like they just copied the Redarc design. Thats what I went with on my 2018 JLUR.
In 2019 the Jeep engineer in Moab told be that they didn't put a brake controller with the tow package because they could not decide on where to put it. The Redarc one works very well.
I recently installed the Mopar trailer wiring kit and it does include the blue trailer brake wire within the harness. I don’t plan to install a brake controller but the wire is there behind the glove box if I ever decide to.I don't have the factory tow package, I do have the Mopar kit in my garage uninstalled. I remember reading somewhere on one of the towing threads that installing the kit afterwards leaves you missing some wires that are there if tow package is installed from factory. I'm wondering if installing the Mopar kit will allow me to use this controller. I guess once a few people have installed the controller it will be a little easier to figure out.
I got one, install is November 9th. Did anyone relocate the 12v to somewhere? Does the controller use the 12v power to operate this controller. I have to figure out once it's in the shop what to do if the 12v can be reloaded.Anyone else see this yet?

Mopar Introduces New Factory-backed Trailer Brake Controller for Jeep® Gladiator
October 13, 2020 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - Mopar, FCA’s service, parts and customer-care brand, is enhancing the towing experience of the Jeep® Gladiator with the release of a new trailer brake controller.
The new Mopar trailer brake controller will give Jeep Gladiator owners the ability to activate the electronic brakes on properly equipped trailers. Independent from the truck’s brakes, the additional trailer brake control allows for greater stopping power when needed, such as on downhill grades, while helping to minimize wear and tear on both the trailer and vehicle. The amount of brake force on the trailer may be customized depending on load requirements.
“At Mopar, we continue to expand our comprehensive Jeep portfolio, which includes more than 500 factory-backed, quality-tested parts and accessories,” said Mark Bosanac, Head of Mopar Service, Parts and Customer Care, FCA – North America. “Our new trailer brake controller improves Jeep Gladiator’s braking efficiency and maximizes safety when towing.”
The new trailer brake controller is easily integrated into the Jeep Gladiator’s instrument panel. Installed in front of the transmission shift lever, the round controller knob provides a consistent look and feel with the vehicle’s interior. The new controller may also be retrofitted into Jeep Gladiators that are already on the road.
Available for purchase as a stand-alone part in the U.S. and Canada, the new Mopar trailer brake controller has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $299. The standard Mopar factory-backed warranty coverage includes two years/unlimited miles from date of purchase or up to the remainder of the new-vehicle’s warranty of three years/36,000 miles.
