Question about Cars & Trucks
If you know that the clutch is not working properly try repairing/adjusting it first. If the clutch is not engaging/disengaging it will act like a brake problem. You can also jack the truck up, take it out of gear; spin each wheel and apply the brake to see if each wheel will stop. Also apply the brake and see if you can spin each wheel.You will need a 2nd person for this. You must not put this truck on the road until you get these problems fixed.

Testimonial: "could it possibly be something to due with my abs as the light is on on the dash ( but i think it has been on for a while not sure though) is there a way to test to see if it is something to due with the abs?"
You can adjust the brake shoes so they don't contact the drum. Disconnecting isn't likely to help you, other than make a mess when you can't stop at all.

Testimonial: "ok so i tried to adjust brakes so as to not make contact and the problem is still hapening. Now the thing that is really bugging me is that when i had the rear up on jack stands there seem to be no problem . I put it on the ground to test it and the problem is back"
If you have drum brakes on the rear then there may be a problem of incorrectly fitted shoes or bad adjustment

Testimonial: "the brakes have not been touched in a few years I took off the drum and it looked to all still be in order is it possible to somehow disconnect just that break to see if the problem stops?"
If your rear differential has an inspection cover, remove it and inspect the gears. It never hurts to change the fluid and gasket.
