SSBC offers a bolt-on 6-piston caliper kit for those trucks that should definitely help braking.

If you have large rims, there are a few kits that take advantage of the space with larger rotors front and rear. Otherwise SSBC with the stock size rotors on the front. I run the 8 piston calipers on my 00 and it made a huge difference especially when towing. One added bonus is it's not a floating design, pistons are on both sides so you don't have to worry about a slide pin getting stuck.
