Most likely a ground issues with that side, you will have to remove the tail light assembly to check the grounds, if the grounds are good then ther are a know problem with the IC board in the tail light housing. Also check the bulbs, have seen a few that have cross circuited themselves causing all kinds of wired lighting problems. HTH

Or it is a switch. The headlights should not affect the brake lights as they are different circuits. It very well could be as Tennisshoes suggested, the tail light board or crossed wiring. Depending on the abuse a 2500 work truck has had, anything is possible as far as damage goes. Checked for lose or frayed wires that are rubbing together.
