    anybody running drilled or slotted rotors? any problems with them?( i heard some guys mentioning that they may shatter?? How do they perform and are they worth it. I have stock rotors and it seems after plowing for awhile the brakes start to lose their stopping ability. For having four wheel disc brakes i think the truck would stop much better.
    Any input would be appreciated...

    ill state the obvious-- dont take that offensively as with any plower and truck, stopping constantly makes the brakes hot, and in turn brake fading occurs

    I don't think they are even available for 4wd Dodges.....so I dunno. I know they're not available for my Ram.

    I would suggest looking for severe duty brake pads- I used the Titanium ti2's from Whitney's- stopped great all the time but wore out in a year. Wife's car has now Bendix titanium's- grab fantastic so I'm going to try them next time. Got standard pads now- not sure who's but they stop great hot or cold, even wet. (cost close to $90 for a pair tho!)
