Dash Lights

I've got a few burnt out dash lights on my truck. It gets dark around the 100 mph mark, the fuel gauge mark, and just recently over on the a/c heater controls.

I want this fixed cause it looks bad and it is annoying. What all has to be done to replace the bulbs?

Is there anything you might could upgrade the old bulbs with like a led bulb or anything?

What all is involved? Doesn't seem like it would be to bad

I'm curious as well. All of mine are working currently, but I would like to upgrade to brighter bulbs or even LED's

Haven't had to mess with changing out the dash or any interior lights for that matter, but here's an older post that may answer some of your questions...

does anybody know if the bulbs in the factory cluster are clear or if they have a green filter on them or if the actual cluster is tinted green. What about the bulb type?
I got some glowshift gauges and I like the green but want my cluster to be brighter to match and I dont know if I need clear or green bulbs and what type.
