Need Brakes

I was wondering what everyone is using for rotors and pads. Does anyone use cross-drilled or slotted rotors? I don't necesarily want to upgrade to bigger brakes yet though.
Any thoughts appreciated.

I've always had good luck on my Super Dutys running stock rotors and good high quality pads. Usually Bendix pads. I run 35s also and even with that little extra weight, I've had great durability and stopping with the Bendix pads. I really want EBC pads, but those are EXPENSIVE!

I tore my front rotors and pads apart tonight. We run the stock motorcraft on all of the trucks. They seem to last a long time. Unless your pads rust and get stuck and warp the rotor like what happened to me. Thanks to snow plowing and not driving it very much.

I drive 80% highway, and just want something to help stop the truck better, I find myself hitting the tow/haul button a lot to help me slow down my 9000+lbs truck.

I have heard powerslot rotors and hawk lts pads are a good combo but i dont have any experience with them. If you go with motorcraft again is it a good idea to machine the rotors or just get new rotors?

Heck, my KR 20s look like they just took a mud bath during the driest part of the summer from the brake dust from the oem stuff.

I have used power slot rotors in the past with hawk pads, they worked well, but the hawk pads are a PITA to seat properly and most of the time they will make noise when applying the brakes. So I usually ran EBC green stuff, ran that combo on my offroad truck (Avalanche) coming down from top of Mount Washington with a bunch of friends, came down in a snowstorm at dusk, point is I had the truck in 3rd or 2nd and alternated between riding the brakes, and those EBC pads did what they were supposed to do, had a couple panic stops for some deer coming down, at the bottom I had smoke billowing out of my wheels, rotors had a nice cherry glow to them. Technically you are supposed to stop a couple times on the way down to cool your brakes, but because it was dark we just went all the way down.

Had 110,000 on my OEM pads when replaced. I did a lot of research regarding what I should put on my Superduty and found that the Motorcraft OEM are the best out there. I would also stay away from the slotted type for this heavy truck as read some bad reviews with the warp of the aftermarket types. One thing that Ford did well was the brake pads and rotors.

Well I will agree with you on the warping, I had a set of Powerslot rotors on my 06 F250 and the rear ones did get warped. However I've been looking at the EBC rotors and pads, they are nice but wicked expensive. Dropping almost a grand on rotors and pads.
