2014 RAM 1500 - Which brakes?

Need to replace the factory brakes on my truck. Which replacement brakes are recommended?

I personally use Power Stop Z36 (truck and heavy towing) series pads on my cars. I have never had an issue with them, and they’re only like 35ish bucks off rock auto for either the front or rear (70ish for the all 4 wheels). If you dont mind spending the money, NRS pads are the best you can get in my opinion. They have galvanized backing plates and have mechanical fit (press fit onto spikes) friction material. However there is a price to pay for them. 100ish bucks for a set of front or rear pads. However they appear to only make front pads for your Ram.

Thank you, I appreciate the feedback.
