That's a good question, and what happened was that when the 2020 Jeep Gladiator first came out, there was a brake controller harness manufactured by Curt that was thought to work with the Gladiator, but it turned out not to be the case. The leading manufacturer, Tekonsha, took their time and made a brake controller harness that has proven to work for a 2020 Jeep Gladiator with the factory tow package, the Tekonsha Custom Wiring Adapter for Trailer Brake Controllers - Jeep # 3073-P. These will work with the following brake controllers:

- Entry-Level: Draw-Tite I-Command Trailer Brake Controller # 5535
- Good: Tekonsha Primus IQ Trailer Brake Controller # TK90160 (Basic LCD display, 0 to 90 degree vertical mounting)
- Better: Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Trailer Brake Controller # 90885 (Good LCD display, 360 degree vertical mounting)
- Best: Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller # 90195 (Best LCD display, storable settings, diagnostic checks & troubleshooting)

If you want an option that is not going to take up room in your Jeep's cab, you will need to use the Curt Echo Mobile Trailer Brake Controller # C51180 which just plugs right into the 7-way with no wiring needed whatsoever. This is my recommendation due to how easy it is to use and the fact it does not require any space inside your Gladiator's cab.

I have added links to video reviews for you to check out as well.
