All bulbs are the wedge type 194 (except vanity & glovebox which I didn't do). The manual is wrong. The 4 swivel lights and 2 map lights up front are not replaceable. They cast a yellow hue but the leds from VLED I used are so bright they washed them out so it's really not too noticeable.

All the dome lights were difficult to remove and required pliers to pull them out. The middle dome light was extremely tight and I ended up crushing it with the pliers raining glass shards down on me. I still couldn't get it out after that so I had to remove the housing. The only way I could remove it was by using a punch tool on the back side of the housing to push it out. Getting the led bulbs in wasn't a piece of cake either taking some wiggling and pressure.

I did not replace the vanity mirror bulbs yet or the glove compartment. I'm still trying to figure out how to access the glove compartment bulb, it's housing is rather strange but i've only given it a quick look so far. The leds are polarity specific so if they don't light up turn them around. Below is a video on how to install them (not my vid). It's for a Grand Cherokee but everything is the same except for the grab handle lights and the tailgate. The Durango tailgate lights are easier, the white housing does not need to be removed. I posted some pics with notes.

I used these leds for the tailgate, dome and footwell lights. total of 8 bulbs.
5K WHITE 4 LED 2W HIGH POWER BULBS 194 168 158 | 1 PAIR - White 5K - 194 - 168 - 158 LED - Miniature Wedge Base - Bulb Type

All the bulbs are sold in pairs.

Re: Interior LED install details

Thanks for the guide, i ordered a few Osram Ledriving leds in the 4k color spectrum for my Durango, I have them installed in my other vehicle, and they are easily the best LEDS period.
