A replacement license plate light bulb is part # 194 from manufacturers such as Sylvania, GE, Philips, Eiko, PIAA, and ACDelco.

License Light Bulb Housing
The first step is to move to the side of the truck with the burnt out license plate light bulb.

Then look under the rear bumper and locate the light grey bulb socket.

Rotate the socket 1/4 turn counter clockwise before pulling it straight out of the light housing.

Pull the old bulb straight out of the socket and push in a new # 194 bulb.

You may also use any other compatible miniature wedge base bulbs such as the # 168, 175, 2825 or W5W.
