Also, 2013 has same bulbs as "4th gen" right?
Interior wise I believe the bulbs are the same, but the 2013 headlights and tail lights I don't know about. If you have the headlights with the projector style I have no idea. But I'm pretty sure the "Quad" and "dual" style headlights lights are the same bulb types.

Is there a general rule of thumb when selecting resistors? I guess im looking for something in terms of power vs. resistance and what works to prevent flickering or errors? Specifically for 4th gen. Im looking to do my dome, reading, cargo and reverse to start.
Ive looked at the CAN BUS style on SBLED but they dont have many options in those.
I actually sent SBLED an email asking about the resistor for the blinkers and they suggested I use the 50 Watt resistor for my blinkers and they've worked great since I've installed them. But on the interior you really won't get any flickering at all. My dome light flickered when I first installed it, so I just moved it to where it fit better and it hasn't done it since.

Superbrightleds shows I can either put a tower base bulb in or this other kind that is on a circle light board. What would you guys go with if you wanted a cool white but it be nice and bright looking?
For the dome light go with something like this:
Before I lowered my truck and all that, this is with the windows down, I'm using the cool white map and dome lights.
