    Just registered on this site and needed the see how to replace one dash bulb
    and after doing a search, I see there are no bulbs, only led's. How much is this going to cost to have that done at the garage or should I just live with it? Doing this myself is not an option.:( I'm not into anything fancy. I just want things doing what they're supposed to.

    What year is your truck. If you are sure it is an LED, I take it you have an 05+? There are a few members on here probably in your area that can help out. The LEDs are about $0.50 each. Or, if your truck doesn't have TRAC, VDC, or anything like that, you can move that unused LED over to the one you need to replace.

    Whoops. It's an 03 4w/d. The one that's out is on the left side of the panel
    at the gas gauge. I'm in Franklin County MA.

    03 are just bulbs with an orange cover. I believe they are 194's.

    Pretty easy to do. I've done it a few times (first time was because a few lights were out. Second time was to replace with LEDs due to the cheap bulbs I used with poor color).

    The one thing the guides dont tell you is to turn the wheel 90 degrees so you can remove the steering cover screws.
