Colored interior bulb

Last night i drove out to the river and a guy had a red 06 ranger. he went to change stations and his interior glowed red when he opened the door.
does a company make red replacement bulbs for the overhead light?
yes im too lazy to find the part number and search autozone.com

Pull on the back if its the one with map lights.


http://superbrightleds.com/mini-wedge.html

912 fits the map lights

http://superbrightleds.com/festoon.html

44x10mm 9 led fits the center dome light.


Ebay may be cheaper but atleast you know what to look for.

Those colored bulbs don't last. It doesn't take long before they turn clearish and look real bad. Why not just convert to LEDs?

FWIW, i have white leds in the stock ranger domelight. It looks like full moonlight.


If your going to to do the ex ohc then I think the smallest festoon will fit but i have yet to measure that bulb and do the swap.
