The brakes on my 2018 2500 Ram have been crap from day one and have started squealing like a stuck pig as of recent. Plenty of pad life left, but I'm ready to upgrade. I've run Napa Adaptive one on cars in the past, but never on a truck. What are you guys running, and do they hold up? I don't tow a ton, but would like more stopping power all the way around. Never have I had a truck with so little stopping power as this thing.
 
I could not be happier with this setup. Much less dust, better stopping and ZERO squeal!
Copy pasta from Rock Auto confirmation.

i ran the powerstop ones on the front of my 13 dually. they worked great. the rear rotors wouldnt work though because of they didnt have holes drilled and tapped for the dually speed sensor.
 
I love Power Stop calipers, rotors, and pads and all rubber lines replaced with braided stainless.
 
You guys running the G3 Evos or the Geomet coated? They only offer the rears on the tow/haul set for my truck. G3's are the drilled and slotted...not really sure I need to go that direction, seems a waste on a 7k pound tow beast.
 
Nevermind, I found them at carid, not rockauto. I'll probably go with the braided lines too.

I only run coated rotors these days, but that's because rust.

I'm not really a fan of slotted/drilled rotors.
sure seems like less swept area and more points for fatigue, in an application that probably doesn't need it.
