Just a little, about 6000 lbs. the electric brakes on the trailer work good tho, so the truck didn't have to do much to stop it.

I had stock brake system and towed a 10,100lb 5th wheel dry since I bought the truck in06. Never had issues... I will soon be gettign a 15,000lb toy hauler/5th wheel. Should I stick with OEM?

I have duralast gold calipers, rotors and pads all the way around and I honestly ddidn't notice any difference better or worse than stock, but I am not towing anywhere near as much. I got the duralast because they were cheaper and i was assured that they would meet or beat OEM requirements. I kinda figured if I wasn't going to spend a fortune on drilled and slotted rotors, then I should just get the least expensive option

I would only go back with OEM if you get harder ones it will take out other parts. I pull a 14k 5er with my 97 and it still has the stock brakes with 122k i do have a PacBrake and ATS converter Lockup i do have a new set ready to install in the shop but i just use it as a grocery getter for the past 3 years now that i have the 06 more power but when it comes to going down mountains passes, the hit the brakes 2 times sucks next to the PacBrake.

I ended up getting the SuperDuty Gold brake pads for the front, and gold for the rear. They dont have SD for the rear. I used the $20 off $80 or more and $20 credit from rewards program. The pads have a warranty, so as long as I dont ware them down to get metal to metal contact, they are free life time replacement. Once the guy pointed out the warranty, I pulled my wallet out.
