i've done the dash motors and lights. honestly you might as well change the motors if they haven't already been done while your in there. Its kinda pain to pull everything apart but once its apart its just a bunch of soldering. the lights are on standoffs and you have to unsolder the lights and pull them out. you have to halfass measure the new leads bend them into shape and solder back in place. there are a bunch of lights in the cluster. i haven't ever dealt with any other lights. i have one heate control button light out.

just did mine this weekend and the only thing ive ever soldered is copper and it still was pretty simple. I ran into two problems
1.one of the new leds was bad but didnt realize it at first-sucked
2.my fuel gauge wasnt working right and ended up putting a jumper wire from one of the stepper terminals to the curcuit board(much easier than it sounds)

Also did the 4X4, headlight and cargo switches. shitty part was my buddys and i were drinking few to many beers so took longer than expected.

Diesel Place has some good write-ups as well as pictures if u cant find them here
