Not quite. Temp. controller uses a T1.5 (#74), the other switches are a little more involved. I used a 5mm led (I chose blue) in my headlight switch and 4x4 switch along with a 470 nm resistor. There is a write-up somewhere that I followed, but I can't find it now.

I got my leds from superbright. I tried leds from Radio Shack and needless to say it was a fail.

I believe I used the T1.5 twist and lock led in the temp. controller. The headlight and 4x4 switches are more of a pita, because they are not simple plug and play (but look sweet when done). I followed the write-up by Mr. John Griggs.
