Brake upgrade for towing

I've looked on here and havent seen a post of anyone upgrading there braking system. I have an 06 f350 dually and tow alot. I was thinking of upgrading to some drilled and slotted rotors and better brake pads. Has anyone done this already and can offer some advise on brands and results?

Slotted good, drilled will crack.

I did a pad upgrade on my F350, but kept the same rotors.

TCE sells bigger rotors (huge) with wildwood calipers for a pretty penny. That about the only investment worthwhile. Focus on making your trailer brakes better that will be cheaper and pay higher dividends
