Rex08, have you checked the bulbs? This truck is rare in that the ABS light will come on when the brake light bulbs go out.
If the lights are on all the time check the adjustment of the switch on the pedal. Don't adjust it too far in, you will have slight brake application while you are driving which is not good.

Well ABS stands for Anti-lock Braking System. The reason that kicks on is so your brakes don't lock up on you on certain terrain so that's not bad. But you said your brake lights are bad, check the wiring to them for any bare wiring to make sure none of the metal is hanging out of the insulation rubber.

SOURCE: abs and brake lights comes on
What you will need to do is have the system scanned for codes. Your local Auto Zone or Advanced Auto will scan the vehicle at no cost for you. Write the code numbers down and reply back.
When both lights come on, it is indicating one of the ABS sensing components is not operating properly. Your base brakes will be fine, however the ABS function will not work properly. No danger of base brakes not stopping the vehicle.
My guess at this point would be a wheel speed sensor faulty, but again, only a guess until you get the codes scanned.
Get the codes and let me know.
