Chances of the breakers being bad is about 1:1,000,000. If you want to confirm they are good either buy or find someone who has an ohmmeter. Disconnect your battery and measure across the terminals of each breaker. A good/untripped breaker will read near 0 ohms, a bad one will measure somewhere from 1 Million ohms to infinity. Looking at your location I understand that you might be a long way from a dealer, but replacing breakers with fuses on a new truck is generally a bad idea. If I understand the description of your problem, it sounds like nothing worked before and now some things work. If that's the case, I would check for a bad wire between the door and the chassis where it flexs when you open and close the door. The next place I would look is at the switch block itself.
