This is the only step I'm not super thrilled about as I don't like running a power lead outside the car. Everything else was relatively straight forward though.

The price difference is small at the end of the day ($45 vs $100), but I wanted to test it out (and throw the extra $$$ at a plenum spacer)
Well just to follow up, I got it all wired up and my tow wiring tester shows everything working as it should. The biggest pain was routing the power wire underneath, but after that was done everything else worked out fine.

At the end of the day, unless you're really looking to save $50 I'd just opt for the OEM unit.
