Yes, it could be the issue. Check your vacum lines to the booster for leaks and to make sure you have vacum on that booster line. If you do and there are no leaks replace the brake booster.

My 2001 ford f350 super duty wont lock up even if i stand on the brake pedal, whats the possible problems??

I would think the anti-lock brake system would prevent you from being able to lock up the brakes.
If the truck is hard to stop, there could be a glazing on the pads and rotors.

How do you tell if a power brake booster is bad on a 1997 ford f150

Usually when the brake booster goes bad, when driving and trying to stop, the pedal is VERY hard to depress and the vehicle will not stop easily so don't drive fast, you will not be able to stop in short distances.

Loss of brake pedal pressure, hissing sound when pedal is pushed, no visible fluid leak

if the pedal is hard to push like a manual brakes on an old truck I would say the power brake booster is going out
