Unfortunately, Dodge brakes work well but don't last long. We haven't had the opportunity to machine Dodge Truck rotors because they're too thin by the time the pads wear out. Soft rotors? Tough pads? Not enough Rear brakes? Take a good look at your Calipers too as good practice. They're usually ok but don't take them for granted.
