Brakes (on the early HPCR) is still MOPAR PREMIUM parts line. I’ve seen nothing better on any forum (RAYBESTOS rotors a possibility, but I never saw any follow up).

They’ll last well over 100k with ease.

Where one has MORE THAN 1-2 emergency braking situations annually, is a driver problem badly in need of correction. Not applicable. Same for trailering. Bad trailer brakes are just that (not a truck brake problem).

How well the brakes moderate speed given a decent payload (50% of rating) is the test. (Degree & Duration, again).

Big toe or a big boot, to effect slowing momentum?

As it’s a downshift that’s more at stake (getting out of OD into Direct) sensitivity will come to regular exercise given new truck spec brakes.
