NAPA carries the bulb/socket combo. The lettering on the twist-in socket is G5 PC579. Hope that it helps.

18 is what I used on everyone I have installed

Plus you will wanna use different colors. Also a nice thing to do take some tape and wrap around the wire and label what it exactly is. So if you ever sell the truck. The new owner wont have a hell of a time figuring it all out
