In the dark

Can anyone tell me why all of the lights in my instrument cluster went out one at a time? All within the span of about a month or so.

Put a voltmeter on the battery and check it while the truck is off and while idling .A new battery , fully charged will measure 12.7 volts.
If it's over 14.2 volts at idle , the alternator is putting out too much.
This can shorten bulb life and over charge the battery.
