My guess is the plug on the back of it is loose or the switch is bad. Im leaning to the switch being bad. Try and find someone to swap with to verify.

Do your turn signals and break lights work normally? Keep your lights off, then activate your LH turn signal. Get out of your truck and look to see that your LH turn signal is blinking (don't rely on what you hear and see on your dash).

There's a junction box (I've heard) in 6.4L trucks that affect the control of your lights. I'm not sure if it's in the 6.0L, but I'd start with finding out whether or not your turn signals and brake lights work normally without your headlights.

BTW - It's highly unlikely that it's a switch problem especially since *all* of your lights don't work in that position. I'd start looking elsewhere. Also, did you add any electrical things to your truck? Additional lights? Radio? CB? Fuel tank? Air compressor? Reason I ask is because you probably ought to check your work to make sure that nothing was damaged in the process of that installation.
