Sometimes when coming to a stop the brakes feel like you are crunching under your feet and the truck does not stop
Do you

That is the ABS activating because one of the wheel speed sensors is not reading accurately at low speeds and the computer reads that as a brake locking up. This is a pretty common problem on these trucks and there are a number of TSBs on the subject noting various causes like bad wheel bearings, damaged or rusted tone rings or bad sensors. It can even be a mismatch in tire size. It needs to be diagnosed by a knowledgeable technician.
