I went on the page but got a litte confused since they come in all differnt shapes for all the same bulb code. And i wasnt sure if the sizes on the front page would be the same for the 2door. Also wasnt sure about the truck bed light (in the third brake light)

2 door and 4 door don't make a difference but here's links to bulbs that will fit nicely and provide great light output

Dome Light
http://www.superbrightleds.com/morei...d-festoon/237/

Reverse Lights
http://www.superbrightleds.com/morei...edge-base/203/

License Plate Light
http://www.superbrightleds.com/morei...edge-base/198/

Bed Cargo Lights - Same lights used in the license plate

I'm sure someone has asked this in the 30+ pages before, but when replacing stock taillight and front turn signal bulbs (4th gen), is it better to get white LEDs or red and amber LEDs? Don't want the taillights to look pink, or the turn signals to look light yellow.

Also, 2013 has same bulbs as "4th gen" right?

Thanks!

Great post and pics in here.. More projects...

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.

Thanks.

I'm looking at getting LEDs for my interior and license plate, possibly reverse lights as well. Question for the done light for my truck. 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?

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.

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.

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.
