Changing the dome lights

I thought this might be a nice eye opener. I thought I would change the colors of the dome lights to a different color, other than the white that comes installed. Like a black light or blue bulb. I have a Silver frontier with a Tan interior cloth.

Does anyone know A) how easy is it to change the bulbs, B) where i can get some?, and C) can anyone recommend a color bulb that will look cool when the doors are opened and the interior is illuminated.

I thought I might turn the back seat dome light off and only change the front lights, this way if I need a white light at all, i can turn the back seat ones on.

I would tell you if you want to change the lights take it to a mobile electronics store, they should carry the bulb and would change it for u. As for the color the black light or blue would look good! My truck does not have the rear dome light and the front is enough to light the truck up but if you are just going to se the fromts I would suggest the blue to give you enough light!

Blue always looks good. You can buy the actual bulb or get blue covers.

I have just installed a pair of led lights (T 10 Bulbs) in the front map lights and took a couple of pic's the pics didn't turn out the best,they're actually brighter than the pics show.

The led lights are way less bright but you can still read as well as before.
They were supose to be white but they are slightly blue
