Re: replacing dash lights with LEDs

Actually looking into doing this on the Superduty since a couple of the lights are burned out. Never had the dash apart how many bulbs need to be replaced?

They do..The bulb is a #37 and you can get them off of ebay 10 for 1.98 but it takes a couple weeks to ship, I'm waiting on mine to get here and that the last step to changing my interior lights to blue.
