Snap-On $200+ depends on what you want. (These are what I use)
Craftsman $75+

i did my brakes last month or month and a half ago. recently i looked under the truck and nothing seems to have backed out. can you post a pic of which ones back out?

The #16 bolts in this picture should be torqued to 85 lb-ft or whatever your year's shop manual says. 4x2 shown. 4x4 is similar.

Per the 2004 factory shop manual:

Front disc brake caliper anchor plate bolts (short/thick bolts): 85 lb-ft
Front disc brake caliper bolts (long/thin bolts): 24 lb-ft
Lug nuts: 100 lb-ft
