What brake pads are you guys running?

Need a brake job soon. Just wondering what you guys running in your truck. The truck has no pulsing or vibration, should I turn the rotors, or run them as is? Just don't want to cut them if I don't have to, no point in loosing the material. I have not checked the thickness of the rotors yet, but if I should replace them, what brand should I get? Thoughts... Thanks.

If you're not experiencing any pulsation or vibration, there's no need to mess with the rotors (unless of course they fail a visual exam miserably - run your finger across them to make sure they're smooth, no rust, etc.)

I use Duralast brake pads from the local Autozone. Golds up front, standards in the rear (only because they didn't have the golds in stock). Unless you're doing something hardcore with the brakes, the standard stuff works perfect. No need to spend extra money on something that won't be used to its potential.
