Default Modification to my mod list

Ok, so my original modification list included EBC brake rotors from airram for around $215. However my rotors are really starting to get bad and I just don't quite have the money for both the rotors and the EBC greenstuff 7000 brake pads ($105) also from airram. What would be a good secondary set (both rotos and pads) that would last me till next summer (or beyond) till I can put on what I really want. I chose the EBC due to the low dust accumulation I read about so I would like to stay with something that would also keep the brake dust down. I'd like to stay around $100-150 if possible for both rotors and pads. Any suggestions are welcomed! Thank you!

Wagners best will give you pretty darn good braking power and last well. Not sure how much rotors cost from Oriellys or Napa, but the brakes are around 50..

I would go with the Greenstuff thats what I'm looking into. Get the 7000 for the front and the 6000 for the rear. they dont make 7000 for rear so get the next best thing haha.

Ya they do sell some good rotors, I think they are the most reasonable priced ones I have found for my truk. I think getting the EBC all around will give you some good stopping power! Let me know how it goes, I want the exact same set up as you

LOL, I went to the casino today and came back with an extra $200!! I'll be putting that aside for my next modification! Yeah, I'm definately going with the 7000 series pads, just not sure what rotors to go with. I need to talk with Airram and see what they reccomend as I've heard these pick-ups go through rotors like it was yesterday's news. I need to do a little more research before I prop down $225 for a set of rotors that will only last me a year or two. As soon as this ugly weather breaks I'll get everything ordered and I'll update ya on how they are!
