    Alright I know it's stupid easy to swap out the bulbs in the HVAC controls and behind the cluster but what about the defrost switch and clock ? I want to go ahead and do it all but I don't want to have orange,blue and green all lit up at night I'll be okay with just orange and blue

    Tint on the clock.

    No idea about the defrost, I have an aftermarket button. No light except when active.

    The defrost button is a tiny little light, and I don't remember now what size LED it is. But if you pull it apart you can find it pretty easily

    don't forget the fog light switch if you are going to be that complete about it.

    don't forget the warning lights in the instrument cluster as well as the light in the trunk.

    good, that was sarcasm. People get all excited about them as though once they are installed the planets will align and suddenly all will be good in the world and world peace will follow in 2 months. They are lights people and as far as I am concerned to not count as a "mod" that requires excitement, pictures, anything really.

    I saw where someone posted our bulb sizes, but what are the bulbs for the dome lights? I just saw general sizes I believe, hard to pinpoint... I think the same size for the smaller dome bulbs (the ones with the switches) are the same as for the cluster, but I'm not positive.

    The dome light is a 562. The smaller map lights are a 168 or 912. I believe a 194 will work in there as well.

    I thought the center light was a festoon bulb so make sure to look for that.

    LED's are the single cheapest, most rewarding mod I've ever done to a vehicle. My F150 feels completely different with LED interiors. I'm not into changing colors or display changes, that's ricer crap but exchanging bulbs brings the level of everything up a notch.

    I'm not planning to change my display or anything but I do plan on changing the colors of the dash and stuff to blue since the LEDs will make them blue anyway due to the film. The aqua green color just grinds my gears.
