Honestly, most of us like the OEM pads and rotors on these trucks. They're not sports car binders, but they haul this beast down admirably (which is more impressive than stopping a 3200 lb sportscar).
I'd flush the fluid and maybe get the rotors resurfaced if they're in good shape still.
The first upgrade I'd do besides new stuff and fluid would be stainless steel lines (2 for front, 1 for rear). That will improve the pedal feel and make sure the fluid is maintaining proper pressure on the calipers.
The next upgrade I'd do is maybe pads, but no one has a really solid recommendation on a pad upgrade for these trucks.
I run Hawk pads on my Cobra for track duty and they are awesome. They don't use the same compound on these trucks though so I can't say how Hawk will perform on these.
I would avoid buying slotted/drilled/dimpled/cryo'd rotors though. They're a waste of money (they have their place on sportscars and only when they're properly designed).
It may be your only purpose in life is to serve as a warning for others.
