Default Retro solutions LED question

Ok...I know this is something that I could eventually figure out on my own but I just want to make absolute sure of what to order.

2013 Laramie.

Looking for the exact LED bulbs that I need for license plate, cargo lights, 3rd brake light and reverse lights.

I would prefer to order from retro solutions as well. If anybody has ordered those bulbs from there I would really appreciate links to the correct bulbs. I've already ordered the wrong ones and I'm trying to avoid doing it again. Thanks!

well here is the thread that goes through all the led conversion for 4th gens here on the Z http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=90315

beyond that i know if you go to http://www.superbrightleds.com/ you can put in your vehicle information and it will give you the chart for every bulb that you can replace and there led sizes

Thanks. I saw that thread and I thought that reverse lights were 921, then I saw another thread somewhere else that says they're 7440. This is why I'm a little confused. I'll give that other link a try. Thanks again

I believe that the 7440 is the halogen bulb size but they make a few that are leds and the 921 is the more common led size of the same bulb man, im almost 100% sure they are interchangable

For your reverse bulbs you are going to need 3157's not 921's. I made the mistake of buying 921's which are also apparently interchangeable with 194's (license plate bulbs). They do not fit.

It be better to get side emitting ones as they are installed straight up

Reverse are 7440 if you have the factory LED,
921 is the 3rd brake light
9006 is the fog lights

Apart from that its pretty much all covered. I installed a kick ass HID reverse kit. Their pricey but man is it bright.

When you say "factory LEDs" do you mean factory brake leds?

Thought about going HID but it's not really worth it to me. I'm just looking for white lights, not necessarily high output. I did HID headlights though, and I'm I'm love with how they look. Fogs are next.

Correct factory LED brake lights


If you have a Laramie with projector headlights 99% positive you have the lights like i do and you will need 7440.
