Never worry about braking in hazardous conditions again. Pacbrake’s PRXB exhaust brake will improve the stopping power of your diesel truck and give you peace of mind while towing your precious cargo. The PRXB provides braking assistance by creating backpressure from the vehicle’s exhaust. The resulting backpressure safely slows the vehicle without damaging the engine and prevents wear on the service brakes. USRider members receive $50 off the purchase of a PRXB kit. For more information call 800-663-0096 or visit www.pacbrake.com.
