1. Disk or drum on the rear?
2. When she pushes on the pedal are you getting a strong steady stream with good pressure coming out of the bleeders on each side?
3. Is it power brakes?
4. Have you tried with the engine running?

I agree with DODGEBOYS 100% and forgot to mention that also.

Drum, steady stream both sides, power breaks and no not with the engine running.
To recap when i got to the front they bleed well and the pedal went to the floor. This weekend im going to pull the wheels off and pull the drums. Everything looks dry on the backing plates and no sign of leakage otherwise.
If you're getting steady streams from both sides then that means the wheel cylinders are working and are responding to brake pedal input. Sounds like everything is doing what it is supposed to be doing - have you driven the truck since bleeding it last?
