Brakes 2002 dodge dakota

I have a 2002 dodge dakota quad cab full time 4x4 360cid with 31,000 mi getting ready to rplc the brake pads, the OEM brakes have always had poor brake performance, Im willing to upgrade to performance rotors and pads wil this make a diffrence whatdo you advise

I have a 2004 F-150 and nows the time for front brakes (70,000 miles) I will be using OEM pads and rotors to duplicate what I believe is better than average replacement interval.Lots of variables involved in pad/rotor life.Whats your driving style/vehicle use description?

brakes have always had poor brake performance

Could you be a little more specific?
