Nope. The dash color is not determined by the bulbs. Its the overlay that changes the color.

The Blue gauges? Like these?



If so your going to need a dash overlay kit, you can find them on Ebay all the time.

Fordforgotten did it years ago, but again, you cant change the color of the dash without changing the overlay. He pulled his apart and stripped off the green and hit it with a blue sharpy...

Nope, REDPOWERSMOKER.

List of parts

Cold beer.? Check
Soldering iron. Check
3mm leds from eBay. Check
Steady hand? Check.
The balls to tear into dash and everything needed. That's what's the beer is for. Lol.

If you decide to do it just be really patient. It's a pita.

I believe I would by a background from black cat customs, now that I did more digging... I could definitly pull off the soldering though.
Thanks for the feedback.

It depends on the year of your truck, IIRC the 99-04 trucks, youcan use some alcohol on the guage face and remove the greenish tint, then replace the bulbs for your color choice.

In my 06 i did not have that option...i called black cat customz and they made me a custom guage set up, i also re-wired all red LEDs into my factory switches....
