    Any authorized Cummins dealer will be able to make this change for you. Pretty routine.

    Nothing i can add. Just wondering do you brake lights come on with engine brake. My friend had that on a new KW. He had it removed also. Said it just annoyed guys behind him. Every time it braked the brake lights lit up. Thought he was doing it on purpose.

    For the longest time I wondered if the momentary flash of brake lights was code for something. Turns out it was just from them upshifting with the jake :p
