I currently don't put too many miles a year on the truck, 2,000 to 4,000 miles a year, so the former problem doesn't really have a chance to appear. I clean the rear brake assembly every year, doesn't take very long. When I ran cheap Chinese drums, they seemed to wear alot quicker. Hope this help's. Ken
Yes it does help, I have been leaning towards getting new drums. I need to do something because I want to use this truck to pull and more importanly stop my boat. As it stands right now I am a little gun shy about pulling anything. Thanks for the feed back, I appreciate it
