Exhaust Brake

I should be getting my new 3500 this week. I ordered it 3 months ago (starting to get frustrated waiting for it). I do have one question at the moment that I hope some of you can help answer. (my dealer couldn't even answer this when I ordered the truck). How is the exhaust brake controlled, and where is the control located (is it convenient to operate while driving).

I read thru the forum, but could not find the answer, so how bout it guy's (or gals) who have their new trucks, can you help me out?

Thanks
:thanks:

The exhaust brake is right in the center of the console, you can't miss it. It's actualy not a exhaust brake, it's a turbo brake. It just turns on when you let off the throttle and cuts out some where before stalling out. I think it's actually seemless operation, but that might be the nature of the turbo brake, I don't know. It's super convenient to operate while driving, enough it'll spoil you.

A 6.7 Cummins w/ Heated seats. Prehaps the best truck to get your girlfreind warmed up really fast on the coldest winter night.
