My 01 3.4l spent 7 years in MN. E-brake is long since not working...its actually disconnected altogether so I dont accidentally pull it and get it locked on again. Did front rotors 8 years ago..very happy with the high end pads I bought as I still havent had to do brake work!

?= rear drums were adjusted back then, but they rusted on to hubs. How much to rebuild rear brakes? New drums, pads, cylinderz....and how much to put new emergency lines in?

I don't have anything to offer on cost estimates - sorry ...

If the e-brake mechanisms at the front and rear ends are still in workable shape you're only looking at replacing the cable (cables?).

Parking brake cables average around $130 a set..
Only get OEM if you plan on keeping it around for a while..
The aftermarket cables are kind of crappy..

Is the truck an auto or manual trans? If Auto, I wouldn't worry too much about the parking brake..

A wire wheel will make quick work of the hub/drum surface, if that doesn't work, hit it with some PB blaster, worst case, hit it with a heat wrench..
You can usually use 2 10mm bolts to tighten into the drum to push it outwards..

What part of Minnesota were you in?

Hey, thanks for the info! still haven't done anything with the e-brake, or the rear brakes. I put ceramic pads on the front about 20k miles age my Tacoma... hate that I put it through seven winters in MN. I lived in Rice, MN which you may know is right outside of St. Cloud... I did not enjoy living in a college town while I was just OVER college (30-37). ugh.
