I've gotten new front pads 3 times. last time I was in they looked at the back and told me I had 70% acceptable wear remaining which was at 100,000 miles. I don't do lots of towing but do frequently drive in the mountains. I'd expect only once or twice during the lifetime of your truck.

Back in Auto slow tech a decade ago. The Intro to Automotive Technology book said every third front you should do or at least check the rear. Unless you are like me and come home from a friends house in a state that might invole 3 sheets, and forget to take the E brake off the whole way home.

Is IFS something you can get penicillin for???

HAHA, I have done that before for a few seconds and then realized I was being really stupid. My truck has 115,000 on it and I have only replaced the front pads once so far, nothing on the rear. Guess i'll wait a while!!!
