shifter out of park? 04 6.0

I push on the break but it is very hard and sometimes impossible to get it out of park and into gear.

Is the shifter loose as well? A common problem in these trucks is the shift shaft, shift shaft tube, bushings, and clamps on top of the steering column. If any portion of that assembly fails it'll make it difficult to get into gear for a few reasons. Slide your seat forward, pull your lower trim panel, and unbolt the steering column, let the wheel rest on your seat, and inspect the shift shaft, shift shaft tube, bushings and clamps.
