REMEMBER! Most of these bulbs listed above, you can now replace with "LED" bulbs! (Besides headlights of course!) LED's have a greater lifespan, use less than half the energy of a halogen style bulb, typically produce less heat, and gives your ride an aftermarket/brighter/more modern look!

The best place (from experience) to get LED replacements is eBay, or other online websites, not too many autoparts stores carry them.

ANOTHER NOTE! When replacing blinker's with LED style bulbs, you will have to add in-line load equalizers, or more popular, and safe, LED flashers to replace your old flasher. Some trucks will have the "rapid flash" blinkers with LEDs (before LED Flashers/load equalizers), which means the blinkers will blink very very fast, and on some occasions, you can have NO flash, where you turn your blinker on, and it just stays illuminated.


I hope this guide helps! I got bored and decided to type it up:p::thumbsup:

My fogs are H1's depends on what bumper you have I guess.

I totally didnt even think of the different style bumpers, ill edit it right now! Thanks for that info
 






That's what I figured, no problem!

I didn't think different bumpers would have different lights, I kinda broke my bumper and I'm fond of the mounty bumper, probably swap it soon, but speaking of not going off topic..

Yeah, H1s H3s etc, depends on the bumper.
Nowm you don't plan on listing aftermarket foglight bulbs too do you? lol. j/k.
 






...Nice collection of bulbs...:biggthump

...I hope you don't mind if I add this...I can remove it if you wish..

I did find these at AZ of all places and they work with no problem...they are $10.50 plus...They are clear and burn amber, Hyper Bright Amber LED non polarized bulbs...194A...I use these for the front side markers..

Haha, nope. But yea it would have made sense to use the same bulb...but whatev I guess lol, I wanna swap my puny looking bumper to the newer style with the circle fogs, the all one piece bumper, I think its like plastic or fiberglass but it looks alot beefier IMO

No man thats perfectly fine, any and all info is welcome!
Ive used those bulbs before and loved em! (I had like the whole AutoZone LED selection in my 92 haha)
 






Like this?

That's my truck, I cracked the bottom center on a snow bunker (probably shouldn't of hit it going 25mph :p)

But I don't like I like the Mounty bumper (with fogs) so much more.

That mounty bumper is hot! Lol, but yea kinda like that one, but I want the one without the chrome inserts on the fogs, and the one thats like grayish I guess youd call it.

Sweet ride though! :thumbs: Are those HIDs and diamond cuts?
 






Thanks, and no and no.

Those would be "cool blue" lights with burnt out hibeams and stock heads.

I'm doing HIDs when spring hits. I plan on doing a lot this spring. And that's probably my favorite picture of my truck, lol.
 






Lol its a beautiful pic...something about the lite background and the dark truck just mixes and makes it pop :D
 






What exact model did the bumper with the round fogs and chrome inserts come on i would like to find one my is like the mounty one with the square fogs.
