Bulb sizes?

Does anyone on here know the bulb sizes for the following indicators or 'idiot' lights?:

Red coded indicators:

Door
Anti-lock Brake System
Emergency Brake System
CSL
Anti-Theft (turns out its already an LED)
Check Gas Cap
Fuel Rest Light
SBWL

Blue coded indicator
:

High Beam

Amber
coded indicator(s)
:

4WD High/Low
ABRL
Overdrive
Check Engine Light

Green coded indicator(s):

Speed Control (a.k.a Cruise Control)
Turn Signals

I can't remember the exact words for the abbreviated letters I put up, but I asked this same exact question over at Rangerpowersports.com but no one could answer my question.

I'm actually doing a complete LED conversion to the 'idiot' lights along with the regular cluster ,hvac, light, 4WD and Foglight switches, but I dont know the actual sizes.

Can someone here help me out?

According to the dealer computer, almost all of the individual indicators in the 95~2003 clusters use ordinary 194 bulbs just like the general instrumentation illumination. The bulbs are clear and the colors come from translucent coatings applied to the back of the instrument faces.

You are correct about the THEFT indicator. It is an LED.

Just so you know, there is a possibility that they could be another size. I was at the Ford dealer today and the computer there showed that they were all 194s for both the backlighting and for the indicator bulbs.

The problem is that the picture of the cluster in the shop manual shows different sized openings for the backlighting and for the indicator bulbs. So, now I'm wondering if the computer was incorrect about the 194's for the indicator bulbs.

I guess that puts us back where we started.
