In this case, you will need to leak the for wheels, never leak only one or two wheels when adjusting the breaks. If the leaking continues you need to check the conduit for potential damages. If pedal stay soft after checking everything else, check the break fluid unit. The unit has a piston if I'm not wrong. The piston has some parts that are of rubber material which can wear out or get damaged.

You need to check for a bad fuse or relay. Also there may be a speed sensor problem in the transfer case. Perform an OBDII scan before doing any repairs. this stuff is complicated and expensive. Let the ODBII scan be your guide to avoid buying parts you don't need. The 4WD drive train and axels, should have been serviced at 80,000 miles. (2004 ?)

I don't know what year your truck is but most 4wd engagement are controlled by the computer--take to advance auto have them put it on the computer to check system codes--you may have another issue arise do to the wiring being shorted when they were cut.

I describe this for a Ranger, but it is similar for your machine
It is pretty straight forward. The Ranger has front disc brakes.
If possible spray everything with brake cleaner to reduce asbestos dust as you work on the brakes. Best not to breathe in any of the nasty debris on the brakes and caliper. If I have them I wear nitril gloves for less mess on the hands.
Take the wheel off. The caliper holds the brake pads. On mine it is two large allen bolts at the inside of the caliper to take it off. You don't have to remove both allen bolts--take off one and then loosen the other. The caliper can then be rotated off the rotor. Now you can remove the rotor--it may have a screw holding it on still--remove that and pull it off the wheel hub.(Sometimes they can be stuck on, but they pretty much are just hanging onto the wheel hub studs) Do one at a time and then if you have any issues, look at the other one. The brake pads themselves kind of snap into place in the caliper. Remove the old ones noting any orientation issues and any shims--some of them come with thin plate shims that fit behind them. When you are ready to replace the pads, you need to use a clamp to drive the caliper piston back so that the pads on the cliper will fit onto the new rotor when they are rotated back. Make sure the bolts on the caliper are tight.
You may want to have the rotors turned--machined flat again--or buy new ones--you can always turn your old ones for next time too.
There rear are less essential since most of the stopping is from the front--let me know if this helps- to push my rating u
