I didn't think they'd be that different between 1999-2003.

I think they changed the cluster look in 02?

Its a 658 size bulb... just find the equivalent if that on whatever website you're using!

For the manual transmission shift light? It's the same size socket in the gauge cluster

Anyone happen to know if the turn signal indicators take a different size bulb that the rest of the gauge on a 98 TJ??? After fiddling with the gauge lights today for 45 min to get them all to work, I still couldn't get the flasher indicators to work. I tried every different position, checked them in other locations and still couldn't get them to work. I bought x7 74 tri leds from superbrightleds.com.

That's the same size bulb I'm having problems with when I'm changing the shift light

First time I've really driven mine in the dark since I installed my blue LED's, and it's really evident now that the blue gauges don't match the blue HVAC controls The gauges are more of a teal and the HVAC is more of a deep blue.
