    anybody running drilled or slotted rotors? any problems with them?( i heard some guys mentioning them shattering- I'm not sure if they were just cheap) How do they perform and are they worth it. I have stock rotors and it seems after plowing for awhile the brakes start to su*k. For having four wheel disc brakes i think they would stop much better.

    Try Power Slot rotors and Hawk pads. Once mine are gone that's what I am replacing them with.

    Never ran them on a truck, but I know that on a car, slotted or drilled rotors=shorter pad life.

    i got 105000 miles out of my original brakes , with pulling a trailer full of mowers 5 days a week . i went to napa and went ahead and bought ceramic pads with lifetime warranty and rotors all the way aroud the truck.

    I bought a couple sets of lifetime warrety pads--then the manufacturer up and pulled out of Canada, taking my warrenty with them. Nice of them, huh?
