That makes rear tires lock up?

lol Emergancy break applied. if not the linkage on the transmission might have come out of alignment and when you shifted it into reverse it was still in part unless you could hear the RPM change like it was bogging down trying to move the truck. still thinking eather stuck wheel cyl or emergancy break was applied but some one and forgot to take it off.

there is also a linkage look under the dash also I believe that ford did some stupid things with holding the shift linkage on to the collum with a cupple screws that come loose and cause some issues with shifting. this might however be on the bigger trucks


I will go with emergency brake, or leaking wheel cylinder, unless the differential lock up due to no grease in the rear-end.


Sounds like the rear brakes are locked up. A dry differential will make noise before it locks up. HTH. -Jim
