Default Check Engine Bulbs

I have to thank y'all for having that excellent how-to posted for changing out my check-engine bulb. I have to do this before the truck will pass inspection.

Here's my question: does anyone know exactly what kind of bulbs I'm gonna find back there? I've heard regulars and LED's mentioned. I need to know what to get, even if I have to get both to hedge my bets and return the unused ones. Once I get this torn down, I'll have no other way to the store.

If you could help, I'd be grateful!

Even if there are no problem codes stored, the truck will fail inspection if just a CE bulb is out? Wow...now that is crazy.

Nutty, I know. But they have to see if come on and go off to make sure it's working even though the truck isn't throwing any codes.
