Here’s my full breakdown on the system, with clarification where I think necessary:
IMPORTANT EDITS to Post #1’s wiring diagram:
The 1st adjustment is the wiring of the switch, which has both post #3 and #8 connected to the house battery in a 2A circuit.
The 2nd is the “hot” 8awg line to the...
Always start with a DMM at 12v in these situations. Test the pins, then the lead at the bulbs, then the bulbs themselves.
Often, I find grounding issues are the cause.
Double check those too!
Good luck Tenn!
AFTER INSTALL UPDATE:
1) The FRONT LOWER install required some SLIGHT 'coercion' from a Dremel for the inner bushings that came with the shocks.
I/D (IIRC) was 2-3mm too small, and I used about 2-3mins of sanding to get it to where that, some assembly Moly-B, and a solid glove could push them...
Title's self explanatory... And I ***think*** I've isolated the cause of this issue, but need confirmation from someone wiser with chassis electrical than I am.
Here's the related electrical diagram for the chassis section I'm working with:

Another satisfied '60!
Thanks @jawjatek and @Robert Franzke for their aide, innovation, and inspiration.
Got the ol' girl ready to haul dirt bikes again after I 'de-monkey'd' the P/O's trailer brake/4-pin/spark-shooter set up.
Bless from CA.
^^^ This is a great piece of advice.
Thinking, as I said below, 360/80 5125's all around... I don't think I can go heavier for my 'ish, except up front, with a '398/94' damping. But, that shock (P/N: 24-065283) is too short. I'd have to go with a heavier series (e.g. 5165, 7100) to make that...
Adding info for anyone digging:
Here's a link to a chart from Shockwarehouse.com that shows the Expanded/Collapsed and Valving of the Bilstein 5125 series for anyone searching for a particular application: (CLICKY)
From what I can tell, for a 5125-series 360/80 valving set up, front/rear, for...
Man, did I ever pick a day to come back to this thread... seems like it's breathing well.
Got a knackered set of OME's on a Chev V8 '60, and want to replace them.

This is really stellar work. I like your fabrication skill.
...Anyone who'll take a stab at cutting the dang roof off of their vehicle to install a hand-made pop-top deserves their position of prowess.
I'm running 4plus/MaF, and really like it.
Thought about running an OG ARB for the 60 series for a better winch mount than a Warn HS9500XD, but the main deciding factor was approach angle. The ARB sat out so far that limited my approach, and the 1-2 times a year when I'm REALLY...
