    OK, I'm changing out all of my interior lights for sublime LED bulbs. I can not find a LED replacement for the rear courtesy/reading lamps.

    Also the bulbs under the dash that illuminate the drivers floor are not listed in the owners manual. Any one know what they are?

    Thx all.

    They have to be some 'standard' type bulbs. Just need to find out what type of socket and wattage, then China will hook you up. I want to know too. I don't know why they don't make all bulbs LED by now....

    Were you ever able to find LED replacements?

    When I took a brief stint in a Challenger, it looked like the rear lights may have been those ugly amber colored LEDs. May not actually be replaceable.

    There's several warm white LED assemblies in the interior that cannot be replaced like a traditional incandescent bulb. I've heard from some members that the Viper has identical replacements in the cooler color, but the installation is very involved and honestly not worth the hassle IMO.

    I'm also not sure what the cost is on those factory units, but I imagine it has a "Viper Tax".

    Charger Hellcat bulbs were easy to change over to LEDs...

    Things are so much better in a Charger Hellcat!
