Default LED Dash light conversion

Iím looking to convert my 2 dash gauge lightbulbs to LED for more light on my Ď35 ford. This will be my first time with a conversion. Has anyone switched a T63 bulb to LED? Any suggestions on a suitable LED alternative? Iíve got a stock 6v ground positive system with a dimmer. Anything to watch for and know? The rest of the truck hasnít been switched over yet but I assume there is no comparability issues with the LED and other older style bulbs in the headlights, tail lights etx. All running st the same time? Thanks!

If your main objective is brighter dash lights, consider bypassing the dimmer switch. It's often the cause of poor lighting.
