Replaced brakes and abs is super sensitive now, brakes feel soft

I just recently replaced my pads and rotors on my 2008 f350. Since then I have noticed that the brakes feel pretty mushy, and don't bite hard at all. It takes quite a bit of pressure to slow my truck down . The pedal does not go to the floor though, so I'm a little lost on what it could be
Also, the other day going down the highway, I got on my brakes to slow down coming into town, and I got a ton of abs feedback in the pedal. Since then this has happened a few times when I'm at speed on dry roads

Any ideas?

Try bleeding them. While in there, have a good look to make sure everything is where it should be.

I also changed all my brake pads this weekend and the same thing happened to me. I bleed all the brakes in sequence RR,LR,RF,LF and I have great pedal know.

Or in other words, furthest wheel location from the master cylinder first, working your way to the nearest one last.
