the bulbs arent green in the factory dash, the bulbs are all white , the gauges themselves have the green transparent cover in them that gives them the color , there companies out there that sell aftermarket gauge covers , search the internet , may take some time to pin down what ypou want

Thanks... i was told before that i would need to change the bulbs to blue in order to change the color... if i can just change the cover that would be much more simple...

I have never looked for a set for our trucks. I know you can get 'em for the SD's. Most you will find have white faces and you can pick what color you want. Some even have the ability to change the color with a switch. I'm just not sure what you will find for the OBS. Try Stillen. STILLEN : Precision Performance Components for Your Car or Truck
