Go to a ricer/speed shop and they usually will lead you through the process and let you test the bulbs in their shop. Their prices are generally better than off ebay. I got good license bulbs that actually fit the housing better by trying what they had in theri selection of stock bulbs. The dome lights I went with adjustable length festoon style in a 3X3 pattern and mounted them in the housing with foam tape, that way i could adjust the output direction better. Make sure that the bulb is put in negative to negative/ positive to positive before closing the housing as they are NOT reversible like ordinary bulbs and if you get it wrong you have to reverse the lamp to make it work. Its a fifty/fifty proposition if you do it by guess.

Beave84,

Did you do the Type 1 or Type 2 style? Are yours the 60 LEd or the 92 LED? How do you compare the brightness to stock? What is the bulb number for our turn signals?

Not sure what you mean. The turn signal is 4157na.

I would love to see what those v-led bulbs look like in an 09 sierra. so to do this correctly for the parking lights you need 4 bulbs, and one resistor per bulb (4 of each total)?

I want to do LEDs in everything outside and in, do I need a resistor in everything or just those that flash? Do I need resistors in the back if I put LEDs in the rear stock housings?

I would love a rundown of ALL bulbs in my truck from someone so I know what I need to replace. I already did HIDs in lows and fogs. Here's what I want to do, could someone assign bulb numbers next to my descriptions below?

4 V-LED Dual Color parking light bulbs, need 4 with 4 resistors - (place bulb number here please!)
LED marker light bulbs, need # and quantity - 4157na qty.4 (these are amber) 4 resistors
LED 3rd brake light bulbs, what #, quantity, color - 921 qty.2
LED Cargo Lights, what # and quantity - 921 qty(2)
LED Taillight/turn signal, what # and quantity, do I need resistors on these, on all 4 back here? - 3057 qty.4 and 4 resistors
LED Reverse light bulb - what # and quantity - 921 qty.2 (one each light)
LED License plate bulbs, what # and quantity - see below
LED interior bulbs, what # and quantities - 212 qty.4 (2 each light) crew and extended


I tried LEDs in the license plate lights from three companies and none will fit.. the LEDs are longer then stock and hit the lens of the socket. Watch when adding the resistors to the rear lights that you put them on the flasher set of wires not the running light side. Thats why I changed my whole light between all the bulbs and resistors, $300, it wasn't much more at all ,$350,. The complete light is plug and play. When gettint the 921 bulbs get the one with led's all the way around not just on the end or your refletors wont work in the light.


If I left any out please let me know, thanks for the help in advance!

WARNING! 2011 Silverado's use 3047 bulbs for backup lights - NOT 921!!! I ordered 921's based on the above and just found this out. Sylvania has a bulb replacement guide that you can use to verify what you really need.

I second this one. LED license plate bulbs will help with my back-up camera.

I have a pair of LED license bulbs in mine. I went to my local ricer shop and tried out several to see if they fit and to see the brightness. Found two that fit perfectly and are bright enough. I will try to put up a pic of them lit up later. $10 for the pair and the only issue is they do not get hot so I have to keep the snow away as they will not melt it.
