Question about my brakes

Hey there. I have a 2014 Titan, base model, totally stock except for me adding a tow bar.

I feel like my brakes are pretty weak, compared to the weight of the truck, and this was especially true when I was towing. I'm looking to upgrade the brakes, and was hoping folks might have some suggestions for me. I have two ways I can see going: budget, where I upgrade the pads, and luxury, where I upgrade the rotors to drilled and slotted at the same time I upgrade the pads.

Any tips or advice is appreciated. I'm willing to do just about anything to get nice grippy brakes, as I drive regularly in the mountains.

Why drilled rotors for towing? All you're doing is taking away surface area of the rotor. You are not on the track, you don't need to evacuate heated gasses in-between the pads and rotors caused by track temps..
I tow a 6000lb trailer and upgraded my pads to wagner OEX by a recommendation of a friend. Very surprising at how much better stopping was both daily driving and especially when towing the trailer. Was able to back down my brake controller a bit. Also, somehow no dust
