gm got a winner this year, Ford really needs to keep add strengh to the superduty, i mean there is overall a big difference in capability and performance.

How embarrassing for Ford... really and I'm a huge Ford fan.

Notice they didn't go against the Cummins exhaust brake nor the frame test seeing as the Cummins has a Fully Boxed frame too and the strongest 222 braking hp exhaust brake.

I hope they test my new 800 ft-lb Cummins H.O. to the Duramax. It will be interesting to see what would happen especially since you can get a 4.10 rear like I did with 800 ft-lbs.

The Dodge, GM, test on the frame and Exhaust brake would be interesting.

bet GM couldn't claim victory on the brake. It does work well but after driving an 07 Dodge not really the same feel to it.

For those of you that have not driven the new LML it is kinda like the Speedbrake I had on my 2008 Chevy LMM. With that said I still like the GMC even though the exhaust brake isn't quite the best.

Good looking truck Dual... I like the GMC looks the best out of the two. Nice color choice.
