Hi Ram People,

A friend of mine has a Gen2 Ram diesel which came installed with a genuine Jacobs Compression Brake (i.e. 'Jake Brake').
Dodge say that part is now discontinued, even if I wanted to get it from them for my Gen3 diesel.

A Google search brought up the PacBrake, which appears to be essentially the same type of compression brake, costing just over C$2000.
A similar search showed that the simpler exhaust brake kits weren't far off in price, so why bother with them, as (in my experience as a long-haul semi driver) compression brakes as far stronger.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to engine brake kits, and where they can be purchased?

Thanks - D

What year is yours? They made 3rd gens with both the 5.9 and 6.7 Cummins
