Trailer Brake Wiring

i own a '97 Orvis 5.2L. i've heard theres a wire under the dash, that you can connect a trailer brake module to, so you can control a trailer with electric brakes thru the stock trailer wiring. Can anyone help me find this wire under the dash? where's it at? what color is it? is it labeled? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

My 93 JGC with the towing package had the trailer brake wire. If you call your jeep dealer they can look it up in the shop manual (i had one) and it shows the location. I had to run a wire from the battery thru a circuit breaker and thru the firewall to the brake module which I mounted just to the right of the stearing column. I found the wire that goes to the trailer wiring harness behind a little plastic panel on the side of the jeep (close to where your left foot goes while driving.) It was marked. It was a pretty simple install.
