lost my directionals

Completely lost my directional and 4-ways. Fuse is fine, swapped it out with a new one just to be sure. Its worth noting that I just removed my truck bed to change spring hangers. When I reinstalled the bed checked my lights, everything but the directionals work. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance

the wiring harness is down inside the frame channel, there was no chance of pinching a wire when putting the truck bed back on.

Did you check the flasher? Maybe the ground is bad?

The flasher would make sense. Where is it located. Is there a way to test it to determine if its faulty? Also wondering if maybe the ground to the blinkers was attached to the bolt on the spring hangers that I knocked out? Does anyone know where the ground to the directional lights is located? It makes no sense to me that I would lose my front directionals if I pinched a wire putting my truck bed back on. Wouldn't I have just lost the rear ones?
