Can I change the color of my dash lights?

I have an 02 Tacoma and I want to change the colors of the dash lights. I was thinking about keeping the needles red and changing the rest of the dash blue, like the speedometer, tachometer...etc. The stock color is orange and I want something a little different and kinda cool. Is this possible??? If anybody has any input, post away!!!

Something like these colors...

alright the first gen tacoma is a easy swap.. there should be 3 or 4 plugs like in this pic.

just swap those out.. the smaller ones are for check eng blinker and so on.. you can also change the color in ever thing else in the truck. its very easy to do..

I did this in my T100. The blue bulbs weren't very bright... Try to go LED if you can.

Do those tabs just come out and then you replace the bulb with an LED or something of the sort?

i suggest otherwise....the LED bulbs will create hot spots in the 02s. i highly suggest halogen bulbs for this application.
