My ex has an 04 xl and has had similar issues. Good news is I can change the pads in 15 extra minutes on top of a rotation. Easiest pad change I've ever dealt with.
Brakes have come a long way for ease of replacement in both GM and Ford trucks (not sure about the rest of the guys). If you haven't previously, I would consider some better than stock brake pads......sounds like your driving requirements call for it.
