    I have a few bulbs out around my tach and speedo, and I was wondering if any one knows of an online store that sells replacements. Wouldn't mind going with LEDs if possible. I have an 02 dbl cab. Thanks.

    i would upload picks but my laptop is messed up at the moment but i can give u step by step instructions.

    1. you will need to pull off the a/c control knobs then pull of the black a/c panel
    2.u will find two screws one in the left corner behind the a/c panel and another in the right corner.
    3. then you can pull back the black shroud that houses the a/c controls and radio.
    4. next you will find four bolts i think they are 10mm underneath the steering wheel and there also will be on screw on the left side of the panel.
    5. once all the bolts and screws are off you can pull the panel down then you can remove the plastic panel that surrounds the key hole it will pop out no screws.
    6. now you will move to the top panel that surrounds the gauges, on the left side bottom of the steering wheel you will find one screw and two screws above the gauge cluster.
    7.Next make sure u unplug all buttons and adjust the steering wheel as low as it will go then you will be able to pull out the black panel.
    8. Once the black panel is of you can access the gauge cluster, you will find four screws, once removed you can pull out the gauges cluster.
    9.On the back of the cluster there will be four large sockets that have 194b bulbs to pull out turn the socket insert bulb.
    10. then put it all back.:D
