Hello and welcome to Just answer.com, Super mechanic here. About your vehicle.
Are you sure that the bulbs are good?
Do you know if there is power at the switch?
I have seen some headlight bulbs blow out at the same time, however, if there are no high beams as well you will want to check for power at the yellow wire at the bottom of the steering column. Then with the headlights on the tan wire. (the 50amp maxi fuse in the under hood fuse box also)
That should be grounded through the headlights. Let me locate some more diagrams on it.
Does it have fog lights?
Daytime running lights?
The switch will power the tan wire when the lights are on low and the green wire when on high. There may be a connector problem, (C201) which you will want to check. Here is the diagram and location of the connector. You can test the voltage at the C201 connector as well.
See if there is no power coming out of the dimmer switch to the tan or green wires. That will probably be it, thanks
That is for a 95 K1500 without fog lights or DRL. The actual harness conector will have more than the 3 wires in it, (going to the switch. However, here is a test for low and high beams inoperative for one without DRL.
I figured it would be. The instructions do say to remove the steering wheel to replace it, However, I have been able to get them out without taking the wheel off.
You take off the steering column covers and the top screw for the switch and then with a torx bit and pair of plyers you might be able to sneek the other screw out, (the one that goes from under the steering wheel) and pull the switch out.

INSTALLATION CAUTION: Always use the correct fastener in the proper location. When you replace a fastener, use ONLY the exact part number for that application. The manufacturer will call out those fasteners that require a replacement after removal. The manufacturer will also call out the fasteners that require thread lockers or thread sealant. UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED, do not use supplemental coatings (paints, greases, or other corrosion Inhibitors) on threaded fasteners or fastener joint interfaces. Generally, such coatings adversely affect the fastener torque and joint clamping force, and may damage the fastener. When you install fasteners, use the correct tightening sequence and specifications. Following these instructions can help you avoid damage to parts and systems.Install or connect the following:
