Replacing lights behind instrument cluster

The bulbs behind my instrument cluster burnt out. I am not the most technically inclined person but I can handle a few minor repairs. I was wondering how hard it is to replace the bulbs because I don't want to pay the outrageous fee to have someone else do it. Any thoughts would be much appreciated. Thanks

I'm impressed that you've been here six years and don't know this, or at least know how to find it

LOL. Replacing the bulbs is the easy part. Getting to the cluster and getting it out is just a PITA. Not difficult if you can use a ratchet.

I would definitely go LEDs, as they will probably outlast your truck.
