LED interior dome light bulbs.

I would like to change all of my interior dome lights to super white LED's. The stock interior lights are just to dim. Has anyone done this and have part numbers for the bulbs I should use? Also experience in LED brands not to use? Final question is will I need resistors or can i just plug the bulbs in and go.

I am trying to steer clear of recon. I have a few friends that used the recon bulbs and they ended up having the bulbs go bad in less than a year. An LED that isnt used very often should last the life of the truck.

It will take two kits for your set up with one bulb left over. Im getting ready to go out and look it over to see how it comes out
