What are you looking to spend? And how do you drive your vehicle? Because you can get much better braking by using the proper brake pads and rotors. I'd recommend replacing the calipers and going with a big brake kit only if you really, really need to. Hell I haul loads on my Ram 1500 that are beyond manufacturer's specs and going up and down hills puts a lot of wear and tear on my brakes, but I simply upgraded the pads and they work like a charm. It all really depends on what you're planning to do. Slotted and/or dross drilled rotors will decrease brake fade. Brake pad compound is very critical to what you're doing, so make sure you choose the right one. I must admit that the factory brakes on our trucks are pretty damn good.
