sliver, not that I don't agree with the applications as you described, but have you had a bad experience with greenstuff pads?
Most of my driving is in or between the Rockies and Cascades and I've yet to even come close to heating up a greenstuff brake pad on my 07 while grossing close to 20k gcvw. That's with exh brake and very marginal surge brakes on the trailer being towed.
Unless towing very heavy and/or very steep, I don't see 4th gens which have bigger brakes and well integrated exh brakes having any issues with greenstuff pads.
My experience has been great with them. Long lasting, good stopping power, very low dust and well, no issues, even on a now 12 year old truck with 160k on original never turned rotors. And I don't drive like a grampa.
07 5.9 Mega, G56, SB Single disk Ceramic clutch, OE 1 piece Al driveshaft, 60hp Industrial injectors, Triple dog, Glacier 2mic filter, BD exhaust brake, ATI Super Damper, BD steering brace, Firestone bags, Big Wig swaybar, 4th Gen 20s and some home made Stableloads.
