Does it have ABS brakes? Are you sure that your brakes where bled properly?

I think you already found your problem, when brake hoses fail they cause brake lockups or split and blow fluid all over.

I have already replaced the caliper and rotor on my 2002 Dakota twice and still have a problem (less than 80,000 miles). I had the exact same problem with my 1990 Dakota. It seems to me that it is a quality control problem on the Dakota that Chrysler doesn't care to address.
