    Depends what you want, I run a 4' firestik just for trail riding but I seem to have decent distance with it. 8' whip would be best overall

    Just dropping by to say hi. And @DrFunker be careful with slotted rotors, they are great for street trucks, but adventure trucks will tend to warp them easier when finding water or mud due to the rapid cooling. Nature of the beast.

    I think I had more issue with them being drilled than with the slotted part. Always got shit in the holes

    Doc,

    My research lead me to blank rotors, over slotted and drilled. Lots of people were saying that there isn't any real need for the slotted and drilled on our trucks. They're just not race cars.

    I also read a ton of good reviews on EBC, but I think mine have warped, to be honest. I was even thinking of throwing the old ones back on to double check that it is the rotors I feel while braking, and not something else.

    Depends on where you feel it. Steering wheel is up front, seat/floor is rear.

    Now while none of us in here are taking our trucks to a track day, the slotted or dimpled and slotted can help with towing or lot of extra weight all the time. I'm going to get some dimpled and slotted next to try. I need something better than regular ventilated rotors. Drilled and slotted will not be in my list due to not being needed, up keep sucks, and any of them really worth running will be quite expensive

    We had a set of EBC slotted and drilled rotors on our tundra a while back. Things were always getting packed with dirt and mud. They worked awesome for the first few thousand miles but warped and the pads were shot under 15k miles I want to say, got more miles out of a set of Napa pads and rotors. For offroad applications they dont make sense since once crap gets into the slot it will wear on the pads and cause issues.

    Like jjsul said these things aren't race cars. A good set of pads and just stock replacement rotors and you should be ok.

    I for one will be going with blank when the time comes. @Blais03 just did a full brake job on his truck with duralast gold products, and they have performed well so far

    you cant go wrong! it was cheap as shit. My pads have a LIFETIME WARRANTY for the life of the vehicle! My anti-corrosion rotors have a 3 year warranty. And my calipers life time warranty too! I dont think ill ever buy any other brakes knowing how awesome these warranties are. I highly recomend them. I can get links / PNs to what I have if anyones intersted.

    What Mileage are you doing the front brakes at? I'm at 50K now,(13 DCLB TRD Sport) just put on tires and dealership says I need brakes. I normally wait until I hear the tell-tail noise to change them.

    As for slotted and cross drilled, they are driveway jewelry. I have them on the vette, but just for looks. modern pads don't off gas like old ones did.

    I would also be afraid of stuff getting stuck in them off-roading.
