    Default LED dash light upgrade

    So I was inspired by a picture I saw on here and decided to swap out my normal dash light bulbs for LED blue bulbs.

    However, in doing this I learned that the bulb and socket assembly in the back of my cluster are soldered together, meaning I would have had to break the solder to get them out. Thanks to an old busted Ford Ranger that was rotting away at the farm, however, I was able to avoid that problem. The ranger had the old style push-in sockets, no solder, put in the LED bulbs and installed the assemblys in my cluster. Done.

    That does look nice. It is things like this when I wish my truck were older.
