About to change all the breaks and rotors - Any tips?

I am about to change all the rotors and break pads. I bought the truck used, so i do not know when it was all last changed, so i am just doing all of them. I bought a kit that included near rotors and pads all the way around.

With the rear, i know that the E-Brake is built into the rotor like a drum brake. Does it still just come off and on, like plug and play; or is there more to it? YouTube hasn't been much help on this specific question. The front are pretty straight forward.

Thanks!

Craeshe Do you have blue medium strength thread locker for the calipers? Anti-seize for the the rings of the rotor? Brake lube for the pins and pads? Brakekleen for the oil on rotors? BFH to get the rears off? Torque wrench?

No to the BFH, only because i do not know what that is? I have everything else. Ive done breaks before, just not on this truck.

Should have seen that coming! LOL Anything specific to these trucks/brakes that out of the normal? Again, the E-brake concerns me unless just changing the rotors and pads wont affect it.

The front is pretty standard, I haven't done the rears on my new truck, but it seems like I remember my old '01 having the parking brake inside the rotor drum and I don't remember having to adjust it or anything after installing the new rotors.

Thank you! Do you remember - was it still slide off and slide on, or do you have to dismantle the internals of the rotor? Thats what has me concerned.

Replace the hoses too, flush the brakes. If it’s been awhile since they’ve been touched start spraying everything with a quality penetrating oil every day, just keep it off the rotors.

Just got a new 30 gallon air tank! Haven't bought any air tools yet though. Might convince the misses that I 'need' them for this job...

I still haven't hooked up my new 60 gallon Ingersol rand and I also need brakes soon. I think the job can be done with hands tools. Some of those front bolts are pretty stubborn though
