    I am pretty sure a rotor and caliper are more costly than a shoe and drum, however for the consumer, replacing rotors is less costly than replacing drums, at least that is how things have gone with my '91 Dodge Cummins that I have owned since new.

    OTOH drums last longer than rotors and rear brakes do less work than front brakes.

    God I miss these drum brake fights. I really do. It’s been over a year since the last legitimate one.

    That's because you live in the southwest. Seized calipers are a lot more expensive than slave cylinders.

    Can't possibly agree more on this. I would almost guarantee the people who complain this haven't expected true brake fade. I have with both disc and drum. I love to drive well call it spiritedly. Never had a problem with the 3 Tacoma's rear drum brakes I've had. I also pull often, no problem with the rear.

    Now those front rotors I have destroyed several times under repeated hard braking on 2 of my 3 Tacoma's. Was a great chance to upgrade these when I did. Never had a problem with drums stopping.

    I get that drums on the rear of an already light truck are plenty effective. Also, according to Toyota, towing is low priority for Tacoma owners, so again, discs aren't really "mandatory".

    My question/concern would be extended use of TRAC (4H on an icy road, for example), in which the brakes are frequently and automatically being applied. I'd presume a fair amount of heat could build up, at which point the traction control WILL shut down (according to Toyota). A disc setup dissipates heat far better, either making TRAC more effective, or just keeping TRAC operational.

    Thoughts???

    The rear brakes on a Tacoma don't do much compared to the front. Very little weight in the rear.

    Funny you mention the FMVSS; the first FMVSS issued required discs in the front. In 1968... along with seatbelts. Seems like they've know for a long time discs have better stopping power.

    Shouldn't be riding brakes on hills anyway, that's what the lower gears are for.
