I use replacement LEDs that are listed under the same bulb numbers as the incandescent. 3157 for brake and turn, 3156 for reverse, 1194 for interior and runnin.

Reverse lights are a 921 bulb. To be honest I have tried two different sets in the reverse bulbs and they look cool but less light gets to the ground. The design with the reverse up so high doesn't work well with the LED's. for cargo lights I believe they are called a t10 wedge style. I have everything but my turn signals and tailights led.

just ordered my hids, had 8k on my last vehicle but went with 6k this time for more light. thinking about ordering leds soon, i saw some leds that look really promising for the reverse lights but there 40 dollars a set. and i plan on doing switchbacks in my front turn signals but ill have to get to the dealer to get plugged into the IDS so they can turn off the fast flash if im correct.

What are switchbacks?

And iirc, retrosolutions (site sponsor) has a bright back up light that are 20.00 each or something....I don't know if they will help on these trucks because of them having the reverse lights up so high. A lot of people add a set of fog lights to the back of the truck. They help a ton....or you could run a high wattage LED light bar from recon or the like. They put out a TON of light and are slim mounted and use a small footprint.

switch backs mean there are two colors in one bulb. so in my front parking lights i will have white when the running lights/parking/headights are on and when i hit the turn signal they will turn amber. they come in ao( amber off) or aw (amber white) AO means that only the amber flashes while in turn signal mode and AW mean they alternate amber-white-amber-white on flash mode. i like the AO's better they look more factory.
