replacing instrument cluster lights....

Just browsing the web, could you replace the stock bulbs with something like these LED's? The twist lock ones?

I was checking out the write ups, but I have to be honest, I'm not looking to remove my cluster needles. I tried that before and ended up having to get another cluster. Just wasn't a good experience lol. If I can replace the bulbs with an LED, then that would keep me from having to change the da** bulbs all the time. I just wasn't sure which size twist lock I should get, or if it would even work in our trucks.
Maybe I need to order some and be the tester? lol

I think one of the twist lock LED bulbs listed on that above page might work in our trucks...??

Yes a 194 twist lock LED would work. Not a 74.
