Ford Excursions have terrible rotors because they warp easily. They are such a common problem, there are many, many threads on the different diesel forums regarding them.
My Excursion also suffers from warped rotors.
The most common brake upgrade Excursion owners are doing, is replacing the POS OEM rotors with cryo treated Powerslot rotors, and Hawk LTS brake pads.
There have been quite a few testimonials, by those who tow very heavy loads, who have upgraded to the cryo treated rotors, and are swearing by their performance.
Others have chimed in on the threads that their Powerslots haven't produced the same as the purported claims, but invariably, it's discovered they have the "standard" Powerslots, and not the cryo treated rotors.
My cryo treated Powerslots and Hawk LTS pads arrived just a few days ago. As soon as my buddy gets some time, I plan on swapping out the OEM rotors for these new Powerslots.
If the cryo treated rotors work well for the PSD boys, I'm sure you'd be happy with them on your '02 SCrew.
