Jabbo88 and Riscorpian, can you post where you got your LEDs from and what the model number you got are? Also year of your Ranger in case that matters...

I got mine off of eBay. They're type 194 bulbs, which is standard, and they have 6 pieces (or 6 SMD) 5630 led chips, which are super bright. The 5 SMD ones also work pretty good.

My dash is different than the one this instructional gives. Not in the disassembly part, but in the bulbs. Pics included of my dash. I ordered a 10pack of 5 SMD 194's, and they are no where near the same bulb as the ones used in my dash. Go figure, Advance and NAPA didn't have the bulbs and weren't able to order them, and the local Ford dealership could only get the non-LED replacement. I ordered my 194's online.

It's also 11 bulbs for me, unlike the 6 mentioned somewhere earlier in this thread.

Does anybody have a part number so I can get an LED version of the bulb my dash needs??

Yours take 2721 bulbs it seems, but size 74's led should work also but are just a hair bigger.

Look like the 74/t5 bulbs, most have those for the idiot lights in the dash and hvac(I did). Look those up on the net and compare or ask buggman he knows all these things
