#14 of 16 Dodge Engine Brake
Mar 08, 2009 (8:23 pm)
I forgot to mention the engine brake. My standard tranny model came with the engine brake as standard equipment too and it works like a charm. Maintains its speed down steep hills even with a fully loaded horse trailer with no sensation they are about to run over me. Couple that with the cruise control and its all good. The heater also warms up faster with the engine brake on. The trailer brake (Prodigy) I got for mine came off my Ford. All I had to do was buy the Dodge adapter cable for the unit and it plugged right into the OEM harness under the dash. If you buy one for the Dodge it should have the Dodge cable with it.

I am considering buying an 08 6.7 mega or QC 3500. I do love my 2006 6.0 F350 and have had good luck with it up until now... they don't know whats wrong with it yet. should find out tomorrow. gotta be injectors or something to do with the fuel supply. (176000 km / 105000 miles so far) anyways I get around 15 to 17 mpg. 11.5 towing my 14000 lb 5th wheel. I want this to go up and not down. so some more updates on the 6.7 mpg would be nice and other problems you guys have had.. my next truck will not be a new Ford due to the 6.4 being a big piece of junk. thx

it's been about 2 weeks now. have driven the 3500 about 750 miles, none with the rv except to change the hitch ( had to buy another "drop" hitch to match-up with my Rockwood (TT). Needed 9" drop!.
Truck is getting about 15mpg av. town and highway- without Trailer. 1st trip planned for Good Friday.
4.10 rear lists 16,500 lb. tow rate with dually...that's about 3K MORE than with the 3.73. Did not find too many with the 4.10 on Dealer's lots, so when we found one, we bought it ( got SUPER deal and super trade-in on our 2003 2500 Hemi).
Laramie Package adds alot of stuff..even got Moon Roof. missed 0% for 48 by 1 week, but 2.90 on 48 is still not bad......esp. with all the discounts and rebates.
Brother-in-Law has King Ranch..he's still up in the air about it..but it does have bigger cab than my Quad. Mega would have been nice..but we thought that 8' bed would be better for a big 5th Wheel ( after we sell the Boat).
New Brake Control ( Tekonsha P3) was just Plug and Play..with the pig-tails that came with the unit and the Dodge.( got for $130.00 on line)
all in all.happy so far
