    Bulbs or LEDs for Dash

    Time to pull my dash a part to replace a bulb on my 2006 Ranger.Gonna replace them all while in there but wondering if I should go with 194 LEDs or 194LL bulbs?I really don't wanna do this again and don't plan on ever retiring the truck until it is belly up and not repairable.That might be a while!105K and only repair has been one set of plugs,Tag bulb,Alternator,1 set of tires,Only Ford knows how many oil changes(all dealer done.....$35...I ain't gonna crawl my fat but under there to do it.....),one fuel filter,2 air filters,and Hurst Shifter(Just for giggles!).So,As you can see,this truck might be mine for another 20 or so years and I really REALLY don't want to pull the dash totally down again for a Lightbulb!

    100% LED's

    They'll be much brighter & should last for many years to come.
