Did you search at all?

Go to modbargains and get their powerstop kit for your truck. I have it and love it. Great set of brakes/pads

I work at autozone and got the PFC Carbon Metalic Pads. Replaced the hardware and rotors when I did mine and am at almost 20k miles on them.

Which pads did you buy?

hrm my front brakes are going to need to be replaced soon as well. Right now I have stock ones on my 2000 XLT(74k miles). I'm curious as to what people recommend on brakes. Of course i know nothing about changing them myself. I was going to have ford replace them at some point in the next few months with new OEMs but if there's better ones in the same price range I'd rather go with them instead.
