If you have a lot of miles and its never been done before it probably wouldn't hurt to flush it. Over time the brake fluid wears out just like oil or trans fluid.
It's in the area of the lower 200K miles. That'sexactly my train of thought! Better to do it than to chance it!

Ok. With that kind of mileage, if flushing the fluid doesnt help, you might check to see if your brake lines and calipers are in good condition.

Sounds good! I shall remember to check on that the next time I get under the truck. Thanks!
