Well I called them and they said the semi-metallics were what I wanted for my towing application. soooo, I ordered them up. I'll pull up this thread and report back on how they are, Thanks for the input!

I went with drilled and slotted rotors, ceramic metallic brake pads and braided brake hoses.. When your towing a heavy weight RV you need to be able to stop.. a few bucks now beats thousands to a hospital..

I just realized this is the same place I bought mine.
FYI - I had the rotors on my other truck 9yrs with 0 issues in regards to warping, cracking etc.

Got the brakes on yesterday. One of the front calipers were stuck when I tried to move it back for the new pads. I decided to go for new calipers all the way around. Not cheap for this whole upgrade, but I didnt want a sticking caliper to ruin one of my new rotors. $1,100 for the pads, rotors and calipers. I'll go out and break them in today. A quick drive yesterday and they stop like my old rusty ones. They say you have to go 45 mph to 5 mph (not stopping all the way) about 15 times to break them in and seat them.

Got 'em broke in and they feel nice and stoppy! I cant say how much better than good stockers since I've been driving around with rusty ones for so long. But they sure give you a safer feeling. Guess it;ll take some load off the trailer brakes too.

Old thread.

TexasRT.. Are your upgraded truck brakes really noticeable when stopping your rig? Or has it been too long since you've had stock Ford brakes to compare..
I'm getting close to brake time on my truck again and now that I'm out of warranty there is no point installing stock brakes if I can get noticeable improvement with aftermarket.
