It's time for some new brake pads on the truck, which got me thinking. Should I be considering any upgrades to my braking system? Better pads, rotors, brakes? I have an 09 F150 XLT with Hawk Shell. As far as I know, the truck's braking system is all stock.
Loaded up, I'm near my GVWR. Maybe some better brakes would help with piece of mind in terms of stopping distance or longer, steeper descents. I don't have a lot of experience operating bigger, heavier vehicles so any feedback is helpful.
I couldn't find anything on the forum about this so I thought I'd ask the question.
