Re: life expectancy of brakes?
I have 27k miles now on mine (5.7 4x4) with about 5k towing miles. Looked at the brakes this weekend while swapping wheels and there looked to be 60-75% of the pads left front and rear, and no major wear on the rotors. I would project up into the 40-50k range before replacement is needed.
2014 Ram 2500 4x4 Laramie - more torque to pull the toys
2013 Limited Hemi 4x4 white - Vision wheels with 285/60/18 Terra Grapplers - traded
2011 Overland Hemi 4x4 black/black - retired with QL problems at 46000 miles
