Default Recommendations for best exhaust brake
I have a 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 Quad Cab SLT 4x4 w/5.9L Cummins diesel and automatic transmission. I would like to have an aftermarket exhaust brake installed in my truck as I pull a 5th wheel RV in the mountains. Which of the 3 - BD, PacBrake or Banks would you recommend and why. I also believe I will need a torque converter lockup controller.

Thanks for your help!

For an exhaust brake I would go with BD or PacBrake. Are you looking into a inline kit or one that mounts to your turbo?

For a lockup controller I would look into ATS or possibly BD again.
