What I believe is happened is coming from the brakes. It's big vehicle and tough on brakes. I think there are a combination of problems with yours. I believe the rotors are being overheated. This may be a further problem stemming from the pads not moving well as they should, most often from lack of lubrication. On this particular truck, it is imperitive the caliper, pins, slide hardware and bracket are cleaning thorughly and lubricated with a high quality caliper grease. If there is ANY damage to the boots or corrosion on the pins, replace them. Also put on new pads and rotors that are quality.
