Guage Cluster Before & After

I bought the T10 - 194 SMD Bulbs. The SMD bulbs are super bright. Here is a picture:

I spent around $20 for six bulbs. The turn signals are still green, but a much darker green.

It is extremely easy to do! It took me less than one hour. Here is a write up:

Looks good!

Wish my old dash overlays were green. I had to use green LED's & now my needles are green too.

At least I can see 'em now.

Believe all 04+ have orange-red needles. '03 and older came either white or orange-red....only Expo's and '03 XLT's got the oranges.

Looks just like mine. I LOOOOVE how the needles turned out, I had no idea they would be white.

I got my bulbs, exactly like that, from superbriteleds.com. I got the color in a cool white iirc.

I picked up the bulbs on eBay. They were pretty cheap. Thanks for all the comments!

Looks good for plugins, I just guess I prefer individual SMDs.
