Stumped on Brake Issues

First off, I'm new to this forum and appreciate all the help. i also acquired my first diesel truck, a e99 f250 about a month ago. I'm very impressed with the truck, but I've been battling brake issues since thanksgiving week. First i had a rusted through rear brake line, then i had to put a new rear center rubber line, and lastly a new master cylinder, but i still have a very squishy brake pedal and I believe I have little to no rear brakes. The fronts will lock up in snow/mud and i just slid forever, it seems like no braking power from the rear. The truck only has rear ABS. I have bled the brakes many many times, but it still hasn't fixed the problems. So what am I missing?

I just redid my brakes (pads, rotors, fluid, and some lines) on my truck. Most of my slide pins were fine. Normally, they will rust up and not slide. You may want to check that your rear brakes have good slide pins (should stick out on the bottom inside of the brake). Normally, slide pins lead to the brake not being able to release after being applied, but in my case, my pads were so worn down I couldn't tell I was using brakes at all. Just 2 cents.
