Exhaust Brake question

Pros or cons to using it? Does it stress anything out? Should I not use it in certain situations? When should I use it?

I'm not familiar with these... Any info is appreciated..

You can use the exhaust brake in every situation you want it will not hurt anything.

Using the EB also helps reduce the chances of the vanes in the variable geometry turbo from sticking. Keeps soot from building on the vanes.

Hey do you have a "Tow/Haul" button next to your EB button?

Yep ! I only use it when i have a real heavy trailer and usally just on take off it seems to be to aggressive on stopping. I usally just use the rocker switch on the shifter for stopping. But you will probably never have to change the brakes.

I actually just changed my brakes at a 168k mi and they still had 1/4 or better. Right rear was wearing funny on the ends and starting to make some noise lol. I went with a set of thermo quite pads from Oreilly lifetime warranty $100.00 for front and rears
