what do you think about this?

hey guys, my cab light inside my truck has been dead for a while now, and i am finally gettin round to gettin a replacement bulb for it. i do have a quick question, do you think its possible to replace those bulbs(correct me if im wrong, but i do believe there are 2 bulbs in there), but anyways is it possibe to get them in a different color, like say blue or white, or something alone those lines, or anything i can do to make the light appear a different color..


thanks for the help guys.

I agree here. Not really blue just a blue haze. Go with the LED.

I bought a Pilot brand, blue 168 bulb. I've had the same bulb in my turnsignals and corner lights, lit up bright white with a blue hue. I put a 168 in the dome lamp, and damn it's bright as hell.

There's always that "sharpie mod" you could do to interior lights.
