Banks Brake® 04.5-07
(04 1/2-07) A total system solution with enhanced transmission control for exhaust braking, Banks' direct-mount, no-maintenance exhaust brake has electronics that monitor critical engine and transmission parameters to maximize braking efficiency. It dramatically cuts downhill speeds without using the wheel brakes. This keeps brakes cool and ready for emergencies, and saves thousands in brake maintenance. Optimizes exhaust flow when not engaged. Easy install; needs no drilling, cutting or modifications to stock wiring.
(Automatic Transmissions only) Computerized brake control (CBC) and SmartLock are included. CBC automatically senses throttle position, controls brake engagement and cuts out annoying brake noises. Fast warm-up function prolongs brake durability, and automated brake disengagement at low speed smoothes stop-and-go driving. Banks SmartLock locks the torque converter & raises line pressure to smoothly reduce vehicle speed and safeguard the transmission.
Cast, large-bore brake housing assembly; High-force 41/4" vacuum actuator; Belt-driven vacuum pump with serpentine belt for quiet operation; Computerized Brake Controller/SmartLock; Large butterfly valve with super-alloy shaft-and-bearing system; Wire loom; Mounting hardware.

Bought this a couple years ago and have had no problems towing a camper and ATV trailer down some steep roads in the Snowy and Sierra Madre Mountains in Wyoming. The overdrive disable switch works great in conjunction with the brake to keep your speed where you want it on those long steep down hills. Recommend to anyone who tows in the mountains.

I installed this on my 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 with the cummins diesel and an automatic transmission. The kit itself was not hard to install, just review completely before starting the install, I did require a second person installing the new serpentine belt as it was a tight fit. The exhaust brake worked perfect, it helped with warming my truck up in the mornings and worked as discribed. With the cruise control on and the brake engauged it keep my truck at the proper speed everytime. With no cruise control on my truck would slow to around 30km/hr before it kicked out. I would recommened this exhaust brake and would buy it again in a heartbeat. Works excellent
