Both of the reverse lights are out in my 2005 F-250. I put in new bulbs, checked the fuses still not working. WTH??? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you checked for power at the plug under the truck on the frame rail?

Mine quit working and I had power to the wires under the truck, I think it had something to do with the sockets in the actual tail light. They weren't brite enough anyway, so I installed some tractor lights.

If you have power to the plug but not past the plug to the lights then you have a broken wire or a ground issue. If you don't have power to the plug and all the fuses are good (which you said they were) the you have a broken wire between the plug and the power supply.
