With the Tow mode in the Ford 6.0, you really don't need an exhaust brake. I have a 2005 6.0 Ford F350 SRW and am very happy with it although I don't get as good mileage as I did with my 7.3 diesel. 7.3s did not have the Tow mode and the built-in brake controller. 6.4s look good on paper and look good outside but the mileage stinks and I haven't heard any good news about it, even from Ford mechs.
There are a lot of places, and the number seems to be growing, that prohibit use of jake/exhaust brakes although the laws are primarily directed toward the trucking industry.
We have a two speed Jacobs engine brake and it makes less noise braking than the normal noise of acceleration. There is no way an officer would know I was using it unless he sat next to me and observed I was slowing down without my foot on the brake pedal.
