Last License Plate Bulb I will ever need!

Hey guys,

I just wanted to share my last license plate bulb replacement I will hopefully ever need on my truck (not that it is a big deal to change them out). I replaced my old incandescent bulbs with new LED light bulbs. I really like how white these are and it just really sets off the rear of the truck at night and makes it look so much better.

At around $.60 a bulb this is one of the cheapest/best improvements I have made to my Truck!

Let me know what you think!

Picked up a package of LEDs from Amazon (via your YouTube description) and swapped mine out yesterday, if only the rest of the lights were as easy.
Since 8 came in a pack, I changed out the lights for a couple friends as well and kept a pair as a back up just in case.

Nice! How do you like them? I am going to see if any of my other bulbs (interior and on my other cars) are 194s!

These are gateway LEDs, the swap was so simple, you start thinking "what other lights can I change?" and the hook is set, lol.
I almost never see the lights, so the swap was primarily a preventive maintenance thing, when checking to be sure they worked correctly, I did notice a difference in the lighting color and intensity.

Haha, tell me about it. It just starts the LED addiction... Good thing this is not a super expensive addiction like offroad modding hahaha

The gloves are really only needed for halogen bulbs. That's nice that you found LED bulbs for such a low price.
