I just put drilled/slotted rotors and z16 ceramic pads on my 2013 this past weekend. I have about 500 miles on them so far and I am happy, especially for the price I paid. I bought them from Brake Motive and they were $142 shipped for all of it. I can't say how long they will last yet but my factories were warped within 10k miles so I can't imagine these could be any worse. After it I read an article: https://4wdlife.com/best-brakes-for-ford-f150 and bought a new ones. Guide is new, so information is relevant. Worth to spend 15 minutes and read.

I would never get drilled rotors, doesnt stop any better and introduces weak points that can crack when hot and exposed to water.

I've read that the Alcon only work with 20 inch wheels so you using 17s make me feel a lot better

At $3000 for the front sets alone those Alcons are kind of at a ridiculous price point. I don't understand why no one is making an upgraded set of brakes for F-150's that is reasonable. Wilwoods aren't much less, either. At one time Ford was producing 1400+ trucks a day, 6 days a week. That's a huge potential market for BETTER cast iron rotors.

I agree!

And the Brembo Calipers and rotors are even more expensive.

A bit aggravating since very similar Brembos (I'd argue identical) for other vehicles are ½ the price. The only thing probably F150 specific is the caliper adapter!

It's almost like they are saying we are charging you a premium because not very many people put our product on a pickup truck.

I have no complaints with the application. Installation is first class. Performance is exactly what it should be with the engineering and physics involved. But you have to be in bucket-list mood to pony up.

I'm sure I missed the whole point to this post on upgraded brakes for an F150... :)

But, I got these Power Stop Z36 4 wheel rotor/pad setup off of amazon for just under $500 delivered to my door in 2 days.

I got them in Sept of 2017 and they are doing very well and no warp like the OEM's did on me.

Tow a #7000 TT now and they work great for that too..

Not looking to road race the thing, so don't really need a 3 grand set of brakes..

Anyway, just for some pic candy, here is what I got... ha, ha..

I just bought my 2012 in August. It had 17" wheels and that's what I wanted on it for maximum sidewall. Not interested in purchasing new 20" tires & wheels to fit over Wilwoods.

Good news is: the Blackstone Laboratories oil test just came back with a big thumbs up (it had 143,000 miles). For now, it's just getting stainless brake lines, new rotors and EBC pads.

I did the same thing. Those power stops are nice. I was quoted $375 to do OEM brakes all around and only the front rotors. Spent $450 on the power stops for all 4 brake sets and all 4 rotors from amazon. Great deal and work very well!
