LEDs in cluster and under the dash

Swapped out the leds in the cluster and added 2 10" led strips under the dash. Wired up the under dash leds to the door switch. Next I have to swap the some light bulbs out. Anyone know what size bulbs they are?

Which ones are you asking about?

I've got some LEDs on order for my dash cluster. Which ones did you use and what colour were they?

The ones for the dome light. I ordered some that I thought that were for the dome light and they were too small. They ended up fitting the cluster. I used white LEDs.

Had to cross reference it and came across this. So I ordered two of these.

Re: LEDs in cluster and under the dash

I need to re-ask the brand as i forgot but i've been checking out LEDs a little. A friend with a dub bus has LED headlights and i guess they would be called fog lights or running lights and those things almost blind ya in the daylight when he's behind me and he said they work great at night too unlike the blue headlights i see so much that blind me on the road. Does a person need relays for this kind of thing or is a direct swap or?

I don't really have a specific brand I use. I just use amazon since I get free 2 day shipping because I am a "Prime" member. I search for the bulb size. Just make sure it is an "smd" led. Those are much brighter.
