My 2000 ford truck got stuck in some snow/mud, I tried to get it out by rocking it back and force with a lot of acceleration and gas. Later on in the day transmission went out. Can that cause it going

Yes it's very possible the added stress caused it to fail.

Can the breaks fail or break in that same situation

Anything is possible. And not sure what issues you are having. Heres a thought. With the spinning of the tires could your rims/tires/brakes have gotten warm enough to have melted some of the snow and the water entered your brake housing and once it cooled back down froze some of the inner workings of the brakes causing them to not function properly? Now please forgive me I am here in lower Alabama and we don't have snow to deal with. That being said maybe one of the guys from up your way could shed some light on this situation.

agree with Dan...and once snow/mud gets deep inside it takes for ever to get out without damage..

Sounds like you fried the transmission. It's probably repairable but you might do better just replacing it with a rebuilt or good used one. HTH. -Jim
