    i did do the climate control, cargo lamp switch, and headlamp switch as well, im sure i posted pics a while back, hmmmm, i might have to find them again and repost them, but i didnt solder in a red led, so thus i lack the red in my climate control, the headlight switch is a tower bulb base i found online, but the deal with that whole assembly is that the incandescant bulb is surrounded by some sort of acrylic/plastic filling that wraps around to the parking/headlamp that illuminates to show theyre on, so basically when you put an led in it kind of fades away towards the headlamp light, because leds are so directional, and the cargo lamp switch i had to desolder the bulb and solder in an and led/resistor combo like the climate controls, im pretty sure pmf has a good guide on the stuff, if i remember correctly it helped me out too lol, i will try to post some pics as soon as i can

    Just ordered 5 more LEDs today from superbrightleds.com in Cool White which is almost like a very light shade of blue while still being white but not pure white. Gonna buy the sockets tomorrow probably and have them waiting to go when the bulbs get here. I'll post up some pictures when I get them in.

    If you can find the link to where the pics are that would be great, I have been searching looking for pics of led conversions for the switches around the dach ( cargo, head light switch, ac switch) and it looks like 2-3 people have done them, but no pics of the dissasembly or work needed to make the change)

    I didn't take pics of mine, but the climate controls are easy. My write-up has step-by-step instructions and I'm always here to consult if you need a hand on it. BUT, last time i checked, nobody on GMTC had taken pictures of swapping the climate controls to LEDs. I know there are pictures of the procedure on other GM truck forums, but I can't remember which ones, so you'd have to do a bit of searching.
