Exclamation Dashboard Lights (Instrument Cluster)

I was just wondering if anybody had information on how to change the green lighting in the instrument cluster to a different color (blue led). I haven't checked much into this seeing this is the best place to find information..

thanks guys

there was someone a few months back who posted about a company who was developing something for our trucks, but in the mean time, Reid is correct, there is nothing we can do now, it is an electro-luminescence thing going on in there, no bulbs....

They should have done blue EL. Though I know the teal green is a theme across most of the Chrysler lineup. Even the newest cherokee is teal green.

It reminds me too much of the first EL watches and alarm clocks.
