Cab lights going out

Am i the only person who is having problems with cab lights burning out? I think in going on my 3rd bulb. They cant have many hours on them with only 25000mi.
I'm going to get some led lights. Anybody have any suggestions?

It is just frustrating changing one at a time. Thats why i want to do the leds. I think I will get the recon bulbs.

I've had to replace every single one of mine a few times, and I also have two out right now.

Jimd1050- you are correct the replacement bulbs are at 9.95.
Is that for a set or a single bulb? I have never replaced them myself but how hard is it to do?

08powerstroker64 very easy, on the outside of the lens aft end is a screw, just take the screw out lift the cover off and the bulb is exposed, change out the light, when you go to put the lens cover on make sure the gasket is lined up with both lens and base of lens cover or it may leak. No more then 10 minutes max. $9.95 is for EACH bulb!
