Exhaust Brakes | BD | PacBrake | Banks

If you're looking at this category, it means you truly use your truck as a TRUCK.  Exhaust brakes are the epitome of stopping power, allowing you to utilize the available exhaust and your engine to do the hard work for you, not only saving your traditional service brakes, but also potentially avoiding some scary situations.  While its true that your Ram has a good set of brakes from the factory and you probably have an electric trailer brake to work the brakes on the trailer, they still all rely on friction to stop you and your trailer.  This friction has a tendency to heat up VERY quickly, causing brake fade.  And if you've ever been in a situation coming down an 8% grade with 15,000 pounds behind you, staring at a sharp corner coming up and your brakes aren't working quite like they did at the top of the hill, you are WISHING you had an exhaust brake.  Leave this worry behind by upgrading your truck with an exhaust brake.

We offer brakes from the best in the industry, BD, PacBrake, and Banks. Besides manufacturer, you have several options.  One of the biggest things to determine is whether you have a stock turbo, and if you do, if you are planning to keep it stock. The easiest installing exhaust brake on your Ram is that of a turbo mount.  These merely take the place of the cast elbow behind the turbo, and before the down pipe, just bolting in place.  However, these rely on you having a stock turbo, or an aftermarket turbo with a stock style discharge.  If you plan to upgrade your turbo, many aftermarket turbos utilize what is known as an HX40 downpipe that eliminates this cast elbow, thus in these cases, you cannot use the previously mentioned style of brake.  Rather, you will need to look at an in-line, or remote mount, exhaust brake.  These brakes are just as effective as a turbo mount, but require you to cut the exhaust and mount flanges to the exhaust to allow the brake to be located in-line. 

In order to ensure at least the majority of the exhaust retarding is effective, your torque converter must be in lockup when decelerating.  From the factory, these model year Rams are not in lockup when your foot comes off of the accelerator pedal, thus require a torque converter lockup controller to realize the complete benefits of an exhaust brake.  And of course, if you have a manual transmission, you have nothing to worry about!


Overall, we have numerous choices to ensure your truck can stop safely, and as always, if you have any questions about which exhaust brake is right for you, do not hesitate to give us a call, or send an e-mail to [email protected] and we would be happy to assist.
