Default Not sure this is the right spot but.......

I'm going to do another brake job on my 04 4x4 this weekend. I drive my truck about 3100 miles a month average, mostly highway, to visit customers. I'm wondering what pads I can buy that will give me the most life and be able to stop me when I pull my job trailer.

Dependng on your trailer weight, I really likke the stopping power and life of the brakemotive cross drilled / ceramic setup sold on eBay. I have a raybestos setup on my hemi and use it for trailering heavy loads as brakemotive could not confirm how well the brakes would hold up to heavy towing. I hate the raybestos. I wish I would have went with the brakemotive honestly.
Great customer service, fast shipping and I have used their products on a number of vehicles ranging from my audi to a nissan to my truck.
I would stay away from oreilly brakebest crap...

Hopefully that helps some.

I'm not sure about trailer weight but I only pull it once or twice every 2 or 3 months. I looked at the Brakemotive setup on eBay and it looks good. The entire kit (4 rotors 8 pads) for $210 which seems like a good deal.

I cannot say enough about the products they make. One of the few items worth mentioning on eBay.
They also don't dust up your wheels much.... That is after the initial pad break in.
