I pulled the whole front harness and inspected it. Put new clamps on the battery leads, continuity tested all my grounds, new fuses all around. The only thing I haven't replaced is the relays but I can hear them all turning on and off. I agree that the issue sounds like a short but I either got screwed with another bad bulk harness or the issue is elsewhere.
