I have the slotted cross drilled rotors and hawk pads on my 02. It has an 8" lift with 37s. I tow my boat, maybe 3.5 - 4k. IMO, I would say it helped, but didn't make a HUGE difference.

have you changed to SS braided lines as well? those will def make a big diff.. the stock ones bulge out under heavy braking. the SS braided lines dont and will give you better stopping power

what about the durability of the powerslot rotors and pads? I want to make the step up to them only if they are going to last a whole lot longer than the normal rotors.
