Unhappy Front brakes lock up

I have a 1999 Ford F150 with 22418 miles on it. It has an automatic transmission and 6 cyl engine. While driving home last week both the front brakes locked up. The front wheels were smoking hot by the time I got it home. After it sat for about 30 minutes they released. What would be the cause of this?

Does the vehicle have ABS?

Yes, the truck has ABS.

Agree with Dogg, but it could also be an ABS problem.

Pull the wheels off and have a look at how the brakes are wearing.
