I believe it's a 194, but not completely sure. You can check Sylvania's website.

I know How to replace them. I just dont know what size bulbs they are. I have read through a lot of the write ups and no one has the bulb sizes for a 2004.

Already checked. They don't have the size posted.

Did you read through the whole write up I just posted, because it is in there. Don't just read the OP.

In any case, the main bulbs that light up the cluster are 194s, and the bulbs for the service lights (check engine, 4x4, etc...) are 74. This covers years 1999-2005

I got LED strips and soldered them in. I should have taken pictures of the install, but I didn't feel like it, haha. I got them from superbrightleds.com . It's the WFLS series flexible light strip... the 39" strip with 60 led's. It was just enough to do it. I might have to pull it back out to flip a bulb around (polarity is wrong) so I might take pictures.

Also got T1.5 series LED Twist Lock Lamps from superbrightleds.com . These also fit in your HVAC.

For the cruise control pods... I ordered these. You will need 5.

EDIT: Straight out of my build thread.. But basically you have 194 bulbs. You can replace with LED's or just get stock bulbs.. up to you.

I am pretty sure yes. A 2 pack is about $5 at autozone. So wouldn't hurt to pick them up.

Hello,
The bulbs were in fact the Sylvania 2721's. I bought 8 of them using a discount coupon at Advance Auto. The installation was very simple and straight forward. Just follow the steps posted on this forum, and the new bulbs are in in no time. The main thing to be careful with is tracking where all of the 7mm and 8mm screws are kept :)
