The Ford EB is not as good as the Cummins EB

All four of my rotors are the original since new. 205,000 miles. Never even turned them. Slap the pads on and go.

Done a lot of towing, sometimes in the Rocky Mountains and hot Texas heat.

My favorite pads are Ford Motorcraft Superduty Extreme Service pads. I replace rotors with Motorcraft rotors rather than having old rotors turned.

Tried many other expensive pads and even slotted rotors, but I have found Motorcraft work best for my 2002 F-250 7.3 truck over the years.

169,000 on my 03 GMC I bought new in 02. Never have replaced the original pads. Last service I had done said they were still good. Bet they don’t make them like that any more.

If heavy towing, get semi metallics with the highest friction code (FF or better).

Take a look at F550 pads on Rockauto - only semi mets, no ceramic or organic. Same with medium duty trucks / school buses. Ceramics don't dissipate heat well.
