Best bulbs you can get.

Or Rockauto has them. They are 194s.

But why settle for a 194 bulb? See here: http://www.slantsix.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=58387&hilit=instrument+bulbs+194

On the topic of light bulbs upgrades, check out this link for a great discussion of how to upgrade the exterior bulbs on your old Mopar:

I say get some W5W bulbs instead of 194s and enjoy the increased visibility of your dash lights.


Windows- they're what make a van worth owning!

I bought and installed these in my van's dash back in March, if memory serves I needed 11 for my van, so I bought 2x 10 packs and the other 9 bulbs went into my car: https://www.amazon.com/Partsam-Bright-Instrument-Cluster-Dashboard/dp/B00KT1BH1Q/ref=au_as_r?_encoding=UTF8&Make=Dodge%7C40&Model=B250%7C2747&Year=1991%7C1991&ie=UTF8&n=15684181&s=automotive&vehicleId=2&vehicleType=automotive

Working great so far, they are really bright. You can tell they are on during the day, and man do they look good at night! My only complaint is I need to open the gauge cluster up and seal around the "Check Engine" light, enough of the light sneaks through whatever barrier is there to make the check engine light always glow slightly. It has punked a few people, my mechanic included. laugh When my check engine light kicked on a couple months back for a O2 sensor malfunction there was no doubt it was really on then. laugh Only thing to note is they are polarity sensitive, had to take a couple back out and turn them around in the mounting socket to get them working right. No big deal.
