Default Last License Plate Bulb I will ever need!

Hey guys,

I just wanted to share my last license plate bulb replacement I will hopefully ever need on my truck (not that it is a big deal to change them out). I replaced my old incandescent bulbs with new LED light bulbs. I really like how white these are and it just really sets off the rear of the truck at night and makes it look so much better.

At around $.60 a bulb this is one of the cheapest/best improvements I have made to my Truck!

Let me know what you think!

It looks cool, but the blue doesn't light up the license plate too well. Could be a problem. But again, looks cool.

Do they plug-n-play in the socket with the old bulbs, or do you have to replace the socket and bulb.

Guessing you didn't watch the video huh?

20-30 seconds into the video & you will get the answer to your question.
