Question Cant find my plug in for brake controller

Hey guys i have a 97 2.3L 2wd. i just recently got a uhaul hitch and they put only the trailer light flat four attached to the lighting. But now im planning a move and want to have a brake controller to control the trailer im going to be using brakes. How can i do this?

if the trailer has the brakes and you are looking for the electronic brake controler you will have to purchase that from a retailer..

You probably don't have one, since you really shouldn't be towing any trailer that requires brakes with a 2.3l ranger. I used to have a 2.3l ranger, it didn't tow heavy loads very well.
