High beams dont work

Alright so when I go to turn on my high beams in my jeep my lows turn off and my high beams don't turn on. I checked fuses and all of them are good. Any idea what could be wrong?

Buy a $6-15 Volts/Ohms Multi-Meter at your local Hardware store, Home Improvement store, or WalMart type store. Test your Jeep for 12 volts and for ground continuity. Start at the headlight plugs, then check the relay, then check the high beam switch.

If everything check good, test the headlights with 12 volts applied directly to the pins.

Not trying to be a smartass but you checked the bulbs, right?
If they're good could be a bad relay. What kind of jeep do you have?
