Brake help 99 F250

I have to get this truck going so I can plow in 2 days!

early 1999 f250, 4x4 auto 7.3 , have had for less than a month.

Did pads, rotors, calipers on every corner today, bled the brakes (several times), and now the front calipers are sticking closed. Brake pedal is hard while the truck is off, and gets soft when it is on, easily pushed to floor. Also makes a whining noise like the power steering when pushed.
I greased all the slide pins while putting on the new calipers. Fronts are completely frozen, rears I can hear a light drag, might be the parking brake (did not touch)

Had a bum rotor and caliper, but decided to do them all to know they were good, had good breaking power and pedal feel before.

I need suggestions/ things to try/look for tomarrow cause I really need this truck mobile!

Thanks, Brian
