Assuming you have all the original lights, that came with the rig.
I would replace the flasher.

Do you have LED lights on your rig?

Yes the flasher relay, this has been my experience on other vehicles.

Couldn't say for sure without some testing......... what year model engine?

If you know all the bulbs are working, replace the flasher and go from there. I don't know exactly where it is located, just turn on flashers and find the clicking relay.

Too far north. Too far east.
 
 
 
I would check the bulbs. "Heavy Duty" bulbs will make your lights blink faster. Some folks when they are shopping for bulbs see the HD on the rack and get those thinking they are something special. Get regular bulbs and call it a day.

soudns like it might be a resistance issue. i have this problem off and on with my 40 and i am pretty sure it is the rear lights... mud and water gets kicked up onto aftermarket/quickfix connections and you get corrosion.... Check all wiring connections, that the bulbs connections are clean, etc...

I think you can find standard relays at autozone and what not. you could also change to a no load flasher to eliminate the problem but probably better to track it down first.

X2. I noticed a faster signal flash when I put my signals in my corner markers. All I did was change the connectors, and I left the original bulbs in them. At 1st, I was like WTF? how can that be? Then I realized the only thing that changed was bulb size.

Yes, it's a resistance issue.....If we're just talking about different bulbs here.
