I found a thread about them, they are called visor/vanity mirror light. However that thread is for 09+ http://www.f150forum.com/f38/visor-v...ghting-203354/ not sure if it's the same bulb though, didn't take mine out yet.

Im not sure what you would call em, but those are just lights behind the visor which are on each side of the mirror.
They are 29mm festoon bulbs.

I ordered THESE from e-bay. Cheap and bright (maybe too bright?). More than you need, but having a few extra bulbs is not a bad thing.

You can also order a set of 2 bulbs for $1.46 (so $2.92 for both visors).

Browning, see if a mod could add this to your list in the first post. I think this is probably the 4-5 time I have posted this in the thread.

CREE L.E.D. are easily your best bet. The ones in my corners and tail lights have 10 CREE's each. These things are friggin bright!

Only hazards on.

BrowningSCrew , if you don't mind, could you add those visor/mirror/vanity light bulbs, they are #1210 festoon 29mm (as previously mentioned 29mm is really the only size that can fit, you cant really fit any oversized bulbs.)

Browning does not have the ability to edit the original post, only a mod/admin can edit it. Not sure if he has asked or not though.
