    Lights, 3in lift, tires/ wheels, being awesome
    First thing I would do is change those bulbs and see if that fixes it.

    Could be a bad ground. I think the dash lights are run off one of the 3 main grounds at the rear of the truck.....I think.

    Had a similar problem in my old first gen, ended up being moisture in the fusebox.

    To accompany the above my turn signal panel indicators were on dimly and my reverse lights were also on dimly.

    Parked it nose up in the sun for a day and was good.

    Had a leak in the firewall from where the meth head previous owner drilled a hole for a sub power cable and didn't bother sealing it.
