Checked your info page - 1999 Regular cab/longbox - Just wanted to see what truck we are talking about.

These are my thoughts. This is just me, but if it's pulling that hard, I would think it's up front.

Could be a sticky caliper on the left not applying the proper braking.
Could be your pads. Maybe one side is worn more than the other.

Most likey the left caliper is sticking and not contributing to breaking force and causing your pull.

I agree. Every Ford I owned prior to about 1990 had this same issue of jerking to the right when hard on the brakes and that was the issue probably half of the cases.
