    If you were happy with the OEM pads, replace with same. I know the pads that came with my 2012 OR are very good.

    If you're not hard on brakes, a good ceramic pad won't (shouldn't) squeak and don't dust very much at all.

    I never thought I'd say it but the oem factory pads are fine and actually fairly priced. I replaced mine with ebc green stuff "truck" pads thinking they'd be better but I could have saved money on oem ones. The only difference I notice with the ebc are more brake dust.

    I went with Duralast ceramic pads from Autozone and really liked them. Not very much dust and I felt they stopped the truck better compared to stock. I had them on for over 30k miles and they were dead silent the whole time. I traded the truck so I don't know how long they'll last but they had a lot of meat left on them when at 30k miles.

    Hawk LTS for the front. Much better stopping power than OE and they don't make any noise.

    PowerStop drilled & slotted rotors and Z36 pads from Wheelers. Great setup - I decelerate faster than before. Props to Dan for the recommendation.

    Also, I stopped by the dealer today and they quoted me $127 for the pads alone! I literally laughed and said no thanks and just bought spark plugs.

    It's a $50 rebate only if you have them perform the service?
