I had to push the ones on the sides in a bit to fit

Try these at superbrightleds they have a even effect throughout the cluster. they even come with the twist locks so you dont have to remove the old ones!
not stepping on OP's feet but the ones recommended had the same effct ur describing

WLED-xHP5-PC: LED T10 Wedge Base Bulb w/ Twist Lock Socket

also if you have the key ring that lights up heres the bulb for that too!

74-xHP3: Wedge Base LED bulb



wifes hair tie dont knock lol

Even if your ring doesn't light up you can make it. Just run wires. There is a bulb there I looked just need to get power to it

Looks good, makes me wonder why dodge did something special with their twist locks, but if the ones from superbright work i'll just use those. I've done this swap in multiple makes and models, and so far it looks like this is the most complicated, not that its really that hard at all. lol Definitely gunna be the first thing i do once i start switching over to working over my interior....

Be careful going red. The dash numbers have a natural blue tone to them. Red may turn to purple.
