both back rims getting hot

Noticed brakes were smoking a bit a few days ago on my 2000 F350 but then it stopped.
Yesterday both rims were too hot to touch.
Any idea what would back both brakes hot other than just bad timing?

Your calipers are more then likely seized. I'd recommend replacing the entire setup pads rotors and calipers. If they were hot enough to smoke and are still getting to hot to touch you've probably sustained some damage to the components.

Also check you emergency brakes - could be a stuck / seized emergency brake cable.

These high-quality trucks are notorious for the low-quality caliper bracket floating pins seizing. I guarantee it's your problem or a large part of it. Very poor design.
If the seized parts got the brake assembly hot enough, replace the pads calipers and pins. Inspect the soft line too. They can collapse internally. I have seen this issue get hot enough to melt an axle seal.

Of both rather than just one is getting hot then you likely need to look at a common denominator, either e brake cable or the flexible brake hose that runs from the body to the axle is breaking up internally & retaining pressure.

Always check for residual pressure in system before anything else. Jack up a wheel and see if it turns stiff, crack the bleeder and see if it turns free. Then go after the mechanical things.
