2008 Ram 1500 brake issue Sign In

Was just driving my truck when I noticed it was quickly slowing down when I took my foot off the gas pedal. Next I starting smelling the brakes, luckily I was driving in town and pulled into my driveway. Got out and looked at the front passenger side tire and saw the rotor was red hot and smoke coming up from behind the tire. Brake fluid was as it should be. Any ideas on this problem?

Probably a frozen caliper or bad brake hose. The normal thing to do is replace both caliper and both front flex hoses.
