Upgraded Breaks?? 05 f250

Anyone have any good advice on break upgrades for my 05 f250 crew? I have 37" tires on 20" and im kicking the crap outta my stock breaks. Going through calipers and pads and feels like stock breaks are struggling to stop(and im not an aggressive driver)(most of the time).
Would just like to feel a little more secure when braking and have things last. I dont pull anything really

If i could i would. Went through a set of rear calipers, and rotors all around, and now i got a rear caliper sticking a smoking on me again after about 9kmiles. Is there a bigger brake kit for these?

I put drilled and slotted rotors with ceramic pads. I have 37" tire and it got a little scary after the lift and tires. The break job about doubled the stopping power.

Yeah that seems to be the best route as brake kits are well over $1500. So u really noticed a diff with the slotted roters and new pads?
