Brake Pads

My brake pads are in need of replacing asap. My truck has almost 95k miles on it and its still on factory pads. I called the dealer and they want $84 for brake pads, which isn't too bad.

My question is what pads are you all running? I have had amazing luck with Bendix brake pands and can get a set for about $60. But, if the factory pads lasted this long then obviously they'll last that long again which is what is leaning me towards the OEM from the dealer.

Someone give me some insight so i can go buy some today!

When I replaced my rear one recently, I bought the Napa Auto Parts Premium OEM Semi-Metallic pads. About $60. They are working just fine for me.

i went with the Bendix, part #MKD1069FM. found them for $50 shipped from rockauto.com.

I work for Honeywell who owns Bendix, so my purchase can help out my 401k haha. Also, Bendix pads were awesome on my old Expy so we'll see how they work out on the ol' super duty.
