I'm hoping that was my issue... but the cyclical pulse of the headlights tells me I might be wrong.

Cam Position Sensor, but I'd assume you would have codes if there was a problem. If it's aggrevated by using the brakes I would have a look at the towing harness wires in the back that are easily damaged. And the brake lights. Assuming the voltage is normal and not battery or alternator.

By cyclical with headlights do you mean regular intervals?

Ah, yeah... it definitely isn't that. The cyclical dimming of the lights was definitely at regular intervals. I know the harness in the back is all good. Mine is routed through my LFD Off Road Rear Bumper, and I ensure it was all tucked away and secured when I did that.

I did go through last night and make sure that all the bolts holding on battery/alternator wiring was nice and tight. I still have the dimming, but I haven't had the issue with the brakes again. So, here's to hoping I can hold out on the alternator until I can upgrade to 270XP.
