If you have a strong battery and the truck starts and runs I would pull the lower shroud off the column and go @ that with a meter. The ignition switch feeds many of the circuits in the fuse box. Should be easy to figure out if you have the diagram handy.

Checked behind fuse panel nothing disconnected and I took all fuses out and cleaned the terminals so that's good so would the ignition switch cause just one fuse block to go bad and nothing else? I cleaned the battery to chassis ground, and engine to chassis ground also.

Looking at wiring diagram could it be my left side indicators grounding out my dash? since I got it working for awhile after I was tinkering with the left side ground and power supply a red and black wire.

anyone know were I can buy a blade fuse box so I can change out my fuses from glass to blade type, also when I do this is it as simple as cutting wires crimping new terminals on the wires and putting the new blades on?

You have different feeds that activate with the key switch. You could have one whole fuse block that is powered by one wire coming off the ignition switch. The purple wires are usually a constant hot. The white, large diameter, are usually a switched power from the fuse box via the ignition.
Remember the turn signals are routed through the hazard switch. That switch goes bad. I wouldn't be surprised if it is starting to go bad. If you pull the Hazard switch be careful as it has the main plug and one wire on each side of the main plug.
Replacing the fuse block with the newer blade type is pretty easy as long as you do one at a time.
