It cost me $40.00 to have the local trailer place install my digital brake controller. Took about an hour. I don't know where you live, but if someone's charging you $100.00 to install a brake controller, you're being ripped off.
My F150 already had the wiring in place, but you still need to mount the controller and connect it to the harness. Not something I'd let just someone without training do, or try to do myself. A lot depends on my truck and trailer brakes working properly, so I leave it to the professionals.
leave it to the professionals if the truck didn't come with the tow package already installed.
