disc brakes on the rear of a vehicle have a screw out mechanism that attaches to the ebrake . this means that you must turn the caliper piston to recess into the cylinder.
open the bleed screw to make it move eazier.

Testimonial: "thanks for "bleed valve" tip. I had to take the whole caliper off due to debris in the chamber,the brakes have not been maintained prior to me."
1. Turn ignition switch to off position and leave the key in the switch.
2. Disconnect the battery.
3. Take a small diameter. paper clip and insert it into the small hole in the face of the ignition switch. You will feel a small button that you depress.
4. While depressing the button, turn the key to the accessory position (counter clockwise) and using the key remove the cylinder.
5. You can now remove the bezel by unscrewing it CCW.
6. This will allow you to remove the ignition switch from the dash and disconnect the wire harness plug from the rear of the switch.
7. They don't always come apart easily , and may require some Jiggling of the key and the wire.

In your truck the brakes are hydraulic: the pressure from the oil tank is released thru a solenoid into a piston that pushes on the shoes with the pads. If the brake seems to be still partially engaged when the solenoid is disconnected then the shoes don't fully retract because either they were badly adjusted or the shoes are slightly seized and the spring isn't strong enough to pull them back.
In either case the brakes will have to be opened, cleaned, the support pins oiled and the shoes adjusted - a $300 at a truck stop. Leave that to them, it's a physically difficult and messy job.
