2004 Tundra Soft Breaks...HELP!

Ok, so I've a 2004 Tundra Extra-Cab 4x4. My breaks have been very spongy for a few months and getting worse. I bought a vacuum pump/bleed kit and went around and bled the 5 bleed ports I could find. One on each hub and the one above the diff. Still spongy so I took it to the shop and they bled it with a "power bleeder" still spongy, they found my front calipers were bad , not all the pistons were moving, and replaced them... still spongy. So they said it was the Master Cylinder and replaced it. Still Spongy. He told me he bled it 5 times, still spongy. He says he has no idea what to check next... and neither do I.

Oh, and I live in bush Alaska, truck was barged in 7 years ago from Seattle. No roads connecting to anywhere else in the state so there's no Toyota dealership options.

Any ideas what else it could be or what I should check next?

Check the metal brake lines for corrosion and also the rubber lines; cracks in vacuum line off brake booster?

Does it have ABS?
