      which brake do you have Michael?  when my truck is down I drive an '09 dually with the turbo brake, but my dads old 01 I believe had the Cummins brake on it which I think he really liked.   I would love to have an exhaust brake on my '01.

        Would be better to put an exhaust brake on and then you rarely touch the brake pedal. I service my brakes every 180-190k miles now with stock 16" wheels and stock OEM calipers. Exhaust brake has no technical wear and will extend the brake life quite a bit even with city driving. @portlandareae28 you might not know this but I drive to Boise every other day for @MoparMom to get dialysis. So I'm in Boise traffic every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Exhaust brake works wonderfully in reducing brake wear.      Labor book calls for 4 hours to R&R a VP44. I typically now do then in 1.5 hours without thinking.
