I intend to replace the 3 twist lock dash light globes with red led, I don't know the size of these and would be helpful if some one could steer me right, thanks all.

There are actually 6 guage illumination globes.
All are rated 3W and housed in the Black holders.
I think all replacable globes on the back of the cluster guages are T6.5
Just take one out to measure it and compare with the ones you find in your local auto spares shop

Thats a really unusual globe type(T6.5), never seen those in a vehicle before, just T5 and T10's. Oh, wait, My google search for a T6.5 Globe showed this:

Seems the word to include is "wedge" and you get the 'T6.5' wedge that I am familiar with, like the T5 and T10's.

I've been trying these LED's but not much success, many faulty, flicker in brightness during use. But I think they will be a good dash globe substitute when I get reliable ones as the 90Deg angle in the top spreads the light sideways. I have been buying coloured LEDs to match the indicator colour: Red for warning, Green for turn signal indicators, Orange for low fuel warning, Blue for high beam indicator, White for backlighting.

Normal dome shaped LEDs might work OK for indicator lamps, but are just too brightly focused for backlighting, and don't spread light well. I actually drilled and polished some dome LEDs before these were available, trying to get the light to spread better. Seems my idea was on the money' as you can now buy commercial versions of what I tried to do myself.

2004 T30 series II, Ti for now.
JRR50 Pathfinder, QD32ETi Turbo Diesel, with 'lots o fruit'.
Was looking for a white or silver 2011-2013 T31 TL (Diesel) to "pimp out".
But now moving to a 2012 Jeep Cherokee KK CRD Limited.
