You really don't need to go to leds for color...you can use that LED how-to on my gauges to sand your green paint away and paint on new color and rock the stock bulbs. John Griggs is who i got the idea from...He's a member here by the name of N3elz. His how-to on his cardomain covers the same as the LED thread, but uses stock bulbs and painted other stuff. You can also do the same thing to your heater controls, and LED conversion on your other associated switches.
IMO....gauge clusters aren't that expensive..it's always nice to have an extra(or for me a few extra) to mess around with. lol.
For the color, I(i mean trevor) used transparent glass paint purchased from a craft store....came with like 8 different colors. And you really only need one kit. The kits are basically water color little packets.
'03 and older is what your want your cluster from if ranger, 01 and older explorer, 05ish? and older explorer sport trac or explorer sport.
