4x4 bezel lights

when i started my truck earlier i noticed the 4x4 lights were not on, the **** part. and i tapped the dash and they came on, im guessing either the bulb or a bad connection but has anyone had this problem before? it has never done it until now.

Get in touch with Buggman--he has some nice plug-n-play LED bulbs--I'm running them in my headlight, 4x4, and dual foglight switches. He can do different colors if you want to switch it up.
Great guy to deal with--quality product, fast service, fair prices.

Check out my thread HERE, shoot me a PM or feel free to check out my photobucket pics for tons of stuff I'm working on.

I can mod the headlight, 4x4 & fog switches with red, blue, green & white led's. I've tried yellow/amber, but they don't look nearly as bright as the other colors.

My mods take less than a minute to install (after you have the bezel or dash apart), no wiring needed, everything is a simple replacement of the OEM bulb holder with m led modded bulb holders.
