    Just asking what rotors and brake pad set ups you guys use! I know this is a heavily asked question. No need to go into detail just looking for options to rabit hole!

    Thank you!

    OEM Toyota rotors and pads. a bit spendy, but they never squeal on me and produce little brake dust.

    TRD pads are no longer made. The cryo rotors are up to ~$225 a piece.

    that said, OP appears to have a 1st gen and posted in the wrong section. This is gen 2

    Didn't know the pads were discontinued. It looks like there are some suppliers with inventory still but my pads have a lot of life still at this point.

    I replaced mines with Power Stop rotors and pads. They're drilled and slotted and have held up well over the last 60K miles.
    I off-road tons and tow a 2K lbs occasionally up and over our mountains. There are better brands and setups, but for $213 on Amazon, it's a great deal.

    I use Autozone Gold rotors and ceramic pads on my ‘06 PreRunner. They work fine for my application, no towing or other hard use. I have had no warped rotors or noise, and they have a lifetime warranty. They don’t last very long, but brakes don’t take very long to swap and I have got two free sets in the last 180k miles.

    Always go with oem dude they are designed for your truck specifically and they last long too I only had to replace my brakes once so far and it still has some brake pad left I’m almost at 100k miles put in the truck
