There?s no better way to get the extra control you need for tough downhill runs without risking your Powertrain Warranty*. So you can relax knowing that with genuine Cummins exhaust brakes, you?re getting every last bit of retarding power that your engine can offer without taking chances.
An exhaust brake works by transforming horsepower into vehicle braking power by placing a valve in the exhaust system. When activated, this valve controls the exhaust gas flow and increases backpressure in the engine, slowing down your vehicle and reducing brake wear**. In fact, it can help your brakes last up to three times longer for significant maintenance savings. Whether towing your 32-foot cabin cruiser or eight tons of steel, genuine Cummins exhaust brakes let you face the toughest downhill situations with total confidence.
With its direct turbo-mount housing and butterfly plate manufactured from a special alloy that isn?t affected by extreme temperatures, the Jacobs Exhaust Brake and E Brake deliver reliability and durability you can count on - no matter how long you use them. The exclusive designs eliminate contamination and carbon buildup in the housing to keep the butterfly plate opening and closing freely. The aerodynamic design of the housings and butterfly plates allows smooth exhaust flow to maintain fuel economy when not in use. And, begining with the 1998? Dodge Ram, none of the genuine Cummins exhaust brakes have used mechanical "micro switches" since each system is confidently managed by Cummins? electronic engine control module (ECM) saving you the hassle of maintaining proper adjustment.
It does come down to picking the right exhaust brake for your Dodge Ram. Visit your local Cummins distributor branch or Dodge dealer and get a genuine Jacobs Exhaust Brake or an E brake by Jacobs today.
