All, just wanted to post my brake controller install as an FYI. It's a Redarc Tow-Pro from etrailer.com https://www.etrailer.com/Trailer-Brake-Controller/Redarc/RED44FR.html

Installed the main unit behind the factory headlight switch then I integrated the remote trailer brake control knob into the factory headlight switch. I'm only posting as an FYI since it works well for me, your mileage may vary.

How did you integrate it into the chassis?

I think you’re asking how I mounted the main unit to the car and it’s in the pictures. Secured to the dash structure via four screws.

For the wiring, I used the factory brake controller wiring and spliced it to the pigtails from the brake controller. I forget now but I think I also had to hook up the battery cable which was already under the hood next to the fuse box—I’ll delete the battery section of my post if I learn I’m misremembering projects.

Does this have a part #?

When I bought my '04 Duramax it came with a pigtail to plug into the fuse box for the brake controller.

I just used the universal harness which came with the controller (harness on controller side, four wires on the vehicle side). The TBSS doesn’t have a prewired harness on the vehicle side to plug into, so you’re stuck splicing the four connections.
