    I have about 80,000 miles on my 2006 Double Cab TRD Sport and still running the original brakes.

    How may miles did you have when you replaced the front brakes?
    Did you replace the back brakes at the same time?
    Did you switch to an after market pad? If so, which ones and did you see an improvement in braking?

    Thanks!!

    Brake life all depends on how the truck is used. The rears go out less often. You can pull the drums and check the linings on the shoes. As far as aftermarket goes do a search. The popular option is Hawk pads. I will be using them with some SP Performance or Powerslot rotors.
