Truck pulls to left when braking

Hey guys my 2012 pulls to the left when applying the brakes. The steering wheel will want to go in the opposite direction if I am not holding it.

Any ideas on what I need to go? I have about 40k miles.

first off I have no answer unfortunately, my 13 does the same thing, I was thinking it was the stock already cracking tires I guess it may be more than that, good luck. I will keep an ear out..

Check your slider pins to make sure they are not frozen.

I'd say right front disk brake failure, and the other guys above are correct as to possible issues. Tire problem is possible but very unlikely.

Sounds like a stuck caliper or slider pin.

I had the tires recently rotated and balanced and it made no effect on braking.

What makes you think it is the right caliper?

When I brake the truck wants to go to the left and the steering wheel will pull to the right.

Right caliper is sticking and won't grab. Steering pulling to the right I'd say is bad alignment.
