I’m currently using Hawk heavy duty. They have great stopping power and are holding up very, very well. However, they do create a lot of dust.

If you plan on keeping the truck seriously consider an exhaust brake if you don’t have one. They significantly extend the life of all brake components. With my AF 990 I could go down a 6% grade without touching the brakes.

Your rotors should have wear indicator markings forged into the outer rim. They can be checked without pulling the rotor which us rather time consuming on the dually.

Tubo Diesel Register is a great place for all things Dodge Ram related. Snoot to toot. They have a plethora of articles for each year group.

Hope this helps.
