I want a white overlay for my cluster but I don't know how it would look in my truck. The inside is mostly gray black and blue. Not a damn sight of white lol. But if they do say it's brighter, I might give it a shot. Either that or put more LEDs in the cluster

theyre plug and play led's so its no different than swapping your cluster bulbs for normal bulbs. only difference is the led's are polarized so they only light up if theyre screwed in the right way

when you change bulbs in you cluster you have to first remove the bulb retainers with the bulb in them, then remove each bulb from each retainer. when you push the new LED bulb into the retainer, the bulb can go either way, it doesnt matter. But when you put the bulb+retainer back into the cluster, that's when LED polarization matters. youll notice that the retainer has to be in a certain position for it to fit in the hole. Put in in that position, screw it back in, and test it. If the bulb doesnt light up, remove the bulb+retainer and turn it 180 degrees and screw it in again and it should light up

the type of bulb used is the 194/168 wedge base bulb

its so simple. im making it sound confusing but trust me its not. lol
