EPIC Brake Failure

My FIL aquired a 2000 SCrew Lariat 209,000 a few weeks ago, He calls me late week and tells me he doesnt have time to fix the brakes and provide the TLC it needs and i can have it if i want it and gives me a great price on it.

I go up and pick it up drive it around some this weekend, I Love the truck and so does my wife so i decide to buy it.
On saturday we had an ETAPS meeting just up from my house so i figured it would be a good time to get it thoroughly inspected. First item the brakes, i take a look under the wheel well and see a pair of vise grips clamped on the brake line!! So i pull the drivers side rear wheel off and this is what i find.......




Needless to say the caliper was stuck and the rotor was destroyed.

We replaced the passenger side rotor and caliper at the same time, but ran out of day light before we had the chance to check out the front brakes. But its not going to be a daily driver for a lil while so i have time work on it before i turn my wife loose with it!

It was the rubber line that comes across the rearend just before it splits to each rear side. Yes i am going to be replacing it very soon, its not leaking right now but i dont want to chance it with my wife behind the wheel.

I would NOT have wanted to be in the truck when that rotor came apart!!!

Wow, that is one messed up brake.

I don't know, you may want to drive it a week or so, make sure nothing else is wrong before the wife drives it. Or did you take out extra insurance on her?
