Your instrument cluster takes 194 bulbs. Takes 6 (i believe)....replace them all. There's another thread going on on how-to replace the bulbs....gotta pull the cluster out. Avalible at any autoparts store, heck chevron gas stations might have them too.

Once again, I suggest replacing every light bulb. I also suggest getting 194LL's. Long Lasting.

you can get different colors. You can get LEDS and mod the cluster. N3elz has a good how-to page on this mod.

Found that link:

http://www.cardomain.com/ride/296394/24

That's a how-to to change the color....or to make the film clear, and put in colored bulbs or colored LEDs. John is a member here, He's N3elz. I have performed just about every mod on his cardomain.

The mod i posted about is very easy....but very time consuming. I started to do it, then stopped. I'm to impatient. My buddy did do it in his '01 Ranger....i'll see if i can find the rps post.

EDIT:

The pics don't do justice at all.....the pics are bad compaired to real life. It's more evenly distributed. He did kinda overkill imo on the amount of leds. You could put long life bulbs in and just paint the overlay deals red....or sand/scrape down the green or blue depending on year, and run red bulbs.
