Duct tape two flashlights to the front of your truck.

I vote the switch or the core support ground. Core support ground check is free so thats where I would start. It goes to a harness just behind the driver side headlight (its under the hood).

Yes, of course. However, when mine was going bad my lights were affected by it. There was a significant pulse occurring Which affected my headlights etc.

long story short.. Once I R&R'd alternator no more need to replace bulbs <go figure?>

What I have learned, that any light in the outboard system that is out or going out. The turn signal for that side gives a rapid (faster) tempo when engaged. So its time to check the line.

YMMV
