How long did your brake pads last?

So I've seen a few people mention within posts about when they had to change their pads. I was surprised when I saw a number below 50,000 miles.

If you haven’t replaced the OEM set yet…please don’t vote.

45K I believe on my fronts for my 07. But I did do a decent amount of towing atvs and hauling heavy loads of yard material when the truck was pretty new

Just under 70k and have not changed mine yet. They started squeaking every once in a while about 5k miles ago, and when i pulled the tires off they still had a good amount of material left.

Had to replace rotors and pads at 10k, under warranty. The pads on the truck is starting to squeal. Checked the pads, they are almost toast, need to replace them soon, guessing I'll just replace all of them at the 75k mark when I do the power train/maintenance.

Volant CAI~$350

PRG Frontier Titan Swap~$1,700
*2.5" Spacer + 1.5" Bilstein - 4" Lift Up Front
*Shackle/Leaf/Bilstein - 3" Lift In Rear
Rock Sliders And Shrockworks Skid Plate Set~$1,300

Total=$6,000 + Snug Top Shell = $7,500 + Truck ($22,500) = $30,000
