Check the pistons inside the calipers, usually they are the reason brakes lock up.

If your brakes are ineffective, you have a problem, part of that problem is that your truck is 23 years old. Why don't you change the fluid, replace the front pads and rear shoes. Replace the front rotors and rear drums. Inspect the rubber brake lines as they may be collapsing. Replace the master cylinder. Do all this if it is all necessary and I bet you have good brakes again. Fix the problem or problems and you will not have ineffective brakes.
