Yeah, I had like four of the big bulbs burn out. I couldn't see how fast I was going at night. It's really simple to fix, I'm pretty much a novice when it comes to working on these trucks and it only took like 30 an hour. Just pull out the radio, take the two bolts behind it off to remove the dash piece, pop off the whole dash piece, unscrew the gauge cluster (4 easy to access screws when you remove the plastic dash piece), unplug it and pull it out. Then just twist off the bulbs and get the replacement ones at an autoparts store. I think they were like 2 for $5 or something like that, but it's definitely worth it to be able to see your gauges at night. And theres only like 6 of the big bulbs, so it's not that expensive. Good luck.
Oh, and you might want to try to buy the bulbs before you take the dash apart, or have an extra car. I had to throw the gauges cluster back in and plug it up to go buy the new bulbs. I didn't put the plastic dash piece back on though, it was so weird driving my truck around like that. lol.
