and it can be extremely effective. the only down side is you don't have a switch to "turn it off" so to speak.

Little update on my new tunes with the added Exhaust Braking.

I went with a Canadian Company that was recommended to me. Took them about 4 or 5 revisions to get the truck to run correctly but it was worth it.

Braking is on all the time but its not annoying like I thought it would be when not towing. Maybe because my truck is big & heavy so the additional stopping is nice.

Towing with the Tow/Haul mode on, it works even better! I've noticed I run my trailer brake controller way lower than I used to on all my normal loads that I pull.

Definitely worth the money to upgrade to new tunes with this feature as I couldn't get a hold of my old tuner.

Thanks for yall's help!
