Stuck ER Brake or Tranny Issue?

I have a 2001 F150 Supercrew. It's been a great truck thus far. Recently I have experienced some shuttering while braking which I suspect is a warped rotor(s).

My wife kicked me out of the house last week and I've been staying with a friend whose driveway is on a hill requiring the use of the ER. This AM I noticed that while backing out things seemed different. The truck seemed sluggish and I heard grinding (not gear type) and clunking. Driving forward my truck was either driving "normal" or seemed like it was in the wrong gear or clunking or feeling like it was in 4 wd. The proble is way worse in reverse.

Is this a tranny or transfer case issue or maybe a stuck ER brake?

Oh yea...thanks!

Re: Stuck ER Brake or Tranny Issue?

If the truck has rear disc brakes, the part that the cable connects to right in the wheel is probably siezed. I see this quite often. You can tell by looking at it if it is partially engaged.
