No E-brake for Calif. '03's

I called my local Dodge dealer today to get a price on a E-Brake. They informed me I was lucky I had an '02 because California emissions won't allow the installation of the Jacobs Exhaust Brake on the '03 models. Have any of you Californian's heard about this? Do you concur?<br><br>BTW, they quoted me a price of $1130.00 installed...ouch!

Re:No E-brake for Calif. '03's

I was just thinking about the no exhaust brake on California models. If that is true a one ton dually with 4.10 gears would be limited to a 10,000 lb trailer, since Dodge say's you need an exhaust brake to pull over 10,000 lbs and not void the warranty.<br> That would make Ford and Chevy the only choice if you wanted to pull a 10,000 lb+ trailer, and not worry about warranty issues.
