      Yea I hear ya. I guess I'm more thinking about how often I'll be sitting there holding that switch and be like 'man I wish I could just flip this on and be done holding it!'

      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.

      I am headed back to not "so cool look" :-)  I think I would like to find a set of 17" wheels for the truck so I can put the 3rd gen front rotors on it.  Would be nice to have a little more braking.  How many hours do you guys figure for a first time VP44 R&R?
