    Has anyone tried changing bulbs in instrument cluster on a 2012 or similar? If so, what is the size?

    Turns out this LED conversion is going to be more difficult than I expected. I was under the impression it was literally just a matter of changing the bulbs. Apparently that's not the case? I keep seeing talk of resistors and all of this other non sense...I'm a complete electrical novice. Is there something I'm missing here?

    Did you ever find out which bulb are needed for your instrument cluster? My 2010 1500 just started acting up. My empty side of the fuel gauge will not light up sometimes and occasionally both the fuel gauge and temp gauge will go completely out...

    Thanks

    Yeah, I thought I read something about resistors with the brake lights and concern about the resistors getting too hot when keeping your foot on the brake during long lights.
    Can anyone shed some light *ahem* on the resistor thing? Are the smaller lights (interior, license plate) okay with plug and play but the larger brake/turn/headlight need some kind of resistor setup?

    LED's or HID's

    GREAT POST, VERY INFORMATIVE THANK YOU! I am just curious about what yall prefer..... i'm looking to upgrade all of my lights up front. I have the quads on a 14' ram 1500 lonestar. So according to the post I'm going to have to buy 3 pairs, which is going to get a lil pricey. I was looking on EBAY and Amazon, and found some LED bulb replacements. I've read several good things about them, however i trust this forum to give me better reviews. Are the LED replacements going to be brighter than the HID conversion kits? What should I do guys?
