    My pads and rotors get roasted every year it seems, lots of mountain travel fully loaded though. Also ride the brakes quite bit trailing to go slow and look for tracks.

    Heavy loads going camping coming down the hill was almost definately the reason for warping.

    They are way better than the stock ones. They stay on better and they are textured where they are easy to turn.

    And they look coll with blue lights. :thumbsup:

    My HVAC selector is stuck on the feet position. Which is less than ideal in the middle of summer.

    Anyone have any ideas what to look at before I start ripping things apart?

    You get what you pay for, I think you can get generic pads for 30.00 at Pepboys then if 110.00 is too much

    After catching the truck on fire and fixing that fiasco I finally got it out after a month and camped. It was everything the soul needed.

    get the most expensive pads they sell at autozone i put them on when i was 13 when i started driving and replaced them with a ton of pad left when i was pretty much 18 because they wouldnt stop with the amount of grease and oil imbeded in them

    with enough force and no abs i could lock up the fronts in an "oh shit" situation (even when contaminated) never when i wasnt actually panicked though

    and never once did i have any brake dust

    they worked and were never an insufficency what more can you ask for

    i believe you have larger brakes than my truck did though idk i just know between my 01 4 runner and 95 tacoma the 4 runners brakes are bigger
