I went with raybestos rotors, pads, and calipers from rockauto.com the last time I did my brakes, and they are working great. No problems. The motorcraft, powerstop cryoed, drilled, and slotted, and a few others are there on the rock auto site also.

So do you change out the calipers each time you do pads? What calipers do you recommend?

If you're getting brake pulsation, it means there's probably hard spots which can't be turned out. They come back soon after any attempt at turning.
When I redid my rear brakes, I went with Ford Rotors (which happened to say "Made in China" on the boxes) but they're doing well. On the rears, I went with Ford Loaded calipers. I recently replaced the front pads with Ford "SuperDuty". My front rotors were in good shape with minor scoring and I just reused them without turning.
On slotted and/or drilled rotors, you're losing contact area. It's equivalent to putting smaller pads on.
Do you happen to know a part number for the Loaded calipers? When I google Motorcraft loaded caliper, the results come back rather ambiguous. Also, pardon my ignorance, but what is the difference between a loaded and unloaded or semi loaded caliper?

Optimus.

I would contact a Fords Parts Counter directly for the details and P/N for your specific truck.

I found them on Fordparts.com when I did my rear brakes. But that site is not so good anymore. I would suggest contacting the guys at Autonation Ford White Bear Lake (https://parts.autonationfordwhitebearlake.com/), and give them your VIN. There are different setups. Mine took the same rear caliper on both sides, but later trucks used different calipers (location of the bleeder is important - needs to be on top.)
As far as I know, there only loaded calipers (complete with pads, ready to bolt on) and unloaded calipers (without pads). No ideal what semi-loaded would be (maybe with one pad ? )

Yes, I usually go with NAPA. If I remember right I have gotten some from Ford also.
