Question Brake Upgrade- DBA vs Proline

So I'm getting ready to do a brake rebuild on the D90 SW (SS lines, flush and new fluid, new pads and rotors) with the hopes of improving the braking which is getting pretty bad (lots of armor/gear, big tires) and was wondering if anyone had any advice suggestions on rotors, Ive been told both DBA and Proline are nice. Advice on pads would also be appreciated. I plan on keeping the calipers.

Thanks in advance

What is wrong with stock genuine parts? If the braking is not good, it is usually that the calipers are partially siezed or the master is going bad or someone installed hard compound pads (most likely).

Rotors arent going to help you much in the slowing down department, but will help in the cooling for the brakes. A more aggressive pad will help you stop faster but will also eat the rotors.

Well the rotors are getting replaced too because in the spring the D90 is getting a 4.6 conversion and will be used for hauling trailers and more highway. From experience with other trucks, a good set of rotors will be appreciated. But I also spend alot of time on steep trails so I'm trying to find the best all around setup.

Thanks
