    I have seen this issue at my shop a few times on these truck the rear abs sensor goes bad with finding the issue the whole job costes around $300. I cant say for sure that the issue but that has been the most common issue.

      Unlike brakes of the past, ABS involves sensors and other functions to communicate that there may be a problem.  I suggest it may be best that your vehicle have diagnostic testing performed on it by a reputable auto repair shop that services ABS brakes.
