Answers :

Sounds like you have already changed all those bulbs to no avail. Next is to suspect the wire.
There is a one wire that brings electricity to all those 3 items.
Your wires are color coded.
If you will take any old wire and run it from the bartttery positive ( + ) post to the back of the truck and skin a little insulation off the side marker or the license plate light wire, these should all light up..
Now, you will need to replace that broken wire that keeps these from working.
You need not replace the whole harness from under the dash, just run a wire from the other side of the truck that does work over to the side that does not.
Be blessed.
