Need to know what LEDs fit your truck?
Well, since it seems to be sort of hard to find LED guides for our trucks, were banding together and creating an ALL Generation LED bulb guide. Also we will include HIDs to make everyones life a little easier. If you have read through a bulb replacement guide you will notice that most of the LEDs bulb # is the same as the halogen bulb number say from PepBoys or Autozone.

Here is a good link also to try and figure out what sort of bulbs you need for ANY vehicle. They way they create their list can be slightly confusing though, LINK, feel free to PM me if you need additional help, Im happy to spec LEDs for any vehicle you'd like.

If you have a list of bulbs to add and high resolution pictures to upload with them please send me a PM or post and I will update this until we have a full listing for everyones truck!!

A little more on reading into LEDs as well, as I have seen most suppliers label their LEDs the same way. We will use the most popular "921" bulb

The p/n for a blue 921 as seen in the pictures below is, 921-B12:

921 <--refers to the bulb type B <-- refers to the color 12 <-- refers to the ammount of LEDs in the bulb

another example would be a red version for the third brake light which would read:

Also remember LEDs are polarized, meaning they will only work one way. If you plug your brand new LED in and it doesnt work, pull it out and insert it the other way before making an angry phone call to the supplier!

4th Gen LEDs
Reverse - 921
Cargo Lights/Top mount break light - 921
Map lights - 921
Dome light - 4410
License plate - 194
Tail lights / Brake lights- 3157
Front turn signal / Side marker - 3157

4th Gen HIDs
Quad lights
High beams - 9005/HB3
Low beams - H11

Dual lights
High/Low - H13/9008

Fog lights
(regardless of headlights)

I'm at work so I don't have any pictures, but will edit some in later tonight or so.

Reverse - 3rd Gens from 02-06 use 3057/3157, 07-08 use 921
Third Brake Light-921
Dome Light/Map Lights-578/212-2 (I found one that is MUCH brighter that fits both festoon style map lights and the dome light, it is a 4210-HP6 bulb, I used 'cool white', so as described above a '4210-CWHP6' bulb. It's like daylight in the cab.)
*Note* Some trucks also have the map light bulb listed as a 194.*
License Plate-168
Tail Lights/Brake Lights-3157 *Use a RED bulb for this*
Front Turn Signal-3157

Speedometer/gauge cluster-B8.5
(Will update with additional bulbs, HVAC, overhead console, ect)

Also, many of the miniature wedge base bulbs (921, 194, 168,) can often interchange, allowing you to use a brighter bulb, IF it will fit in the lens as far as the dimensions go concerning height, width, ect.

The few pics I have so far...not the greatest. These are all 'cool white' by the way, which is almost a pure white color, even if the pictures look a little off.

Some better night pictures of the interior LED's..

SS4Luck, let me know if you want these posts formatted differently, or the pictures re-sized to match the rest.

I think those look perfect !

I had issues with LED lites on my 08 Charger... Not illuminating properly, or not at all.... any similar problems with the Ram? Those lights look awesome!

I have not had any problem nor heard any problems so far. Where did you get your LEDs from? 99% of aftermarket electrical problems can be chalked up to install error or wrong parts. They could be installed backward and not flow energy through them correctly, not have the right resistor... the list just goes on really

Nice work SS and Boots!! Rep points to you both!! AND...Great lookin' trucks!

I am wanting to replace all my interior lights ( dash/dome/wherever with blue LED's ) I am confused as they say you need resistors/bases and wide angle LED's for better and brighter lighting? What do I actually need and any pics of the components would be great. Thanks

SS4Luck 09-09-2011 08:18 PM

If you look at my pictures, that is the color/light you get with just standard replacement premade LEDs. I look into fitment for you truck and shoot you a PM

Seeing this post just made me spend $170 in LEDs. Hope the wife doesn't see this
