as is the case with many parts of the truck, it will depend on how your using it.
I play around in the mud quite often and go for romps thru the woods as frequently as my schedule will allow... so, thanks in part to the ABLS, I only get about 30K out of my pads. But I'm not complaining. It's part of the price of playing =D

replaced my front rotors and brake pads for the first time at 85k today, but the pads still had a 3rd of the life left on them. They could have gone 100K easily. I checked the rears to see if they needed to be replaced, and they looked like they could go another 85k so I left them alone.

Bought the truck with 65k...ish. Just passed 90k. Doubt the brakes were new when I bought the truck. My mechanic said it's about time to get the brakes redone. Not a huge rush but... it's time in the next few thousand miles. Still trying to decide how much to spend on the brake job. OEM or...?

Killed mines at around 50000km: lost electrical brakes on a heavy trailer (>5000lbs) where there was alot of steep hills, many miles long, in a heavy rainy day... Alot of water on the road, alot of heat on the brakes...
So spotted them and wrapped them. After trying turning them, still alot of spots and vibration, so changed. Still more than 60% remaining on pads, but killed everything

2011 sv 4x4 cc long bed.
4 wheels with tires
a steering wheel
lights and lamps,
glasses where needed,
and lot of satisfaction

Just replaced both front hubs today and found out my front pads are just starting to dust the squealers@ 103xxx miles. Looking for new pads now and figured I'd resurrect a long dead thread just to F with the whiners here.

2006 Nismo KC 4x4 6speed
Volant CAI with the powercore filter.
Plastic style intake spacer.
Bullydog GT with mild tune.
New ring and pinion and elocker 30Jan15.

Axle vent.

Cargo light always coming on with door open mod

Swapped rear diff with amsoil
Rear pinion went out towing a heavy load so amsoil is out and now some mobil1 75w140 LS synthetic is in!
Swapped front diff with amsoil
Swapped transfer case with amsoil
Swapped 6 speed manual trans with Redline mt85
^sucked so I swapped in royal purple
^sucked almost as bad so I swapped in Nissan mtf which isn't sucking, amsoil next. Nissan MTF is doing very nicely still!!
Added some LED fogs to blind the idiots with drop in hid kits
