Replace your caliper slide pins or you're going to be wondering why the same thing happened another 20k miles from now. Better yet, get some aftermarket calipers(if they make em). Alot of Ford trucks (rangers and f150's at least) have a problem with sticky caliper slide pins. They did it on my old truck and the new truck. My dad's 99 F-150 had the same problem with one rotor warping/scored and only one pad on one side had abnormal wear. He put brakes on @ 30k original miles then 15k later before he finally listened to me. Turns out the culprit was the slide pins.
