I've run a 50 one ton with stock brakes since 1978, maybe 1977.  I love those 
14" rear drums.  This truck is a working truck which used to have my Manly 
3-1/2 ton wrecking crane on it, and I towed home many fine rust specimens.  
Usually overloaded.  It stops fine.  I don't need to improve the system.   If 
you are disabled or live in San Francisco a hydrovac will decrease pedal 
pressure by 2/3.  With all my towing I was never disappointed with the stock 
one ton brakes.  A dual system is good for people who never check their brake 
fluid level and wait  for the reservoir to empty before doing maintenance.  
Everyone else can get along fine with a single system.
