2500hd brake pad recommendation

I have Napas Reactive One vented rotors and pads on the Escalade and had them on my 1500 Silverado (both pulled the car trailer a lot without any issues) Getting them for the 2500 but they don't offer pads for some reason. Thinking about going AC Delco. Any recommendations? I am hard on my brakes.

I've used PowerStop stuff in the past and had good results, these are the HD versions front and rear for your truck, $535

I used EBC yellow stuff pads on my Silverado SS. They were excellent.

Factory replacements. I got 100k out of my original fronts and 115k out of the rears. The new fronts are at 57k and promise at least 50k more.
