Could be alot of things.Maybe you just aren't used to Ford Truck brakes,maybe the front or rear lining is contaminated or maybe the rotors or drums are warped.You could have a bad proportioning valve.You need to describe the actual problem a little more.Some Fords I've driven have very touchy brakes compared to other manufacturers.Pulling all 4 wheels to inspect the mechanical/hydralic condition of the system would be a good idea.Also inspect the parking brake cables to insure they are not partially applied.On the rear brakes make sure both pistons move in the wheel cylinders.

If your talking about the rear brakes locking up after being parked overnight in most cases you'll need to change the rear shoes(Ford had a technical service bulletin for this) and make sure the new shoe's edges are tapered.
