LED bulb replacement

I have all incandescent light bulbs in my mountaineer and want to replace them with LED. I have read that some of them will make your TV and radio not get any reception. Wanting some recommendations on which ones to get.

Cheaper led products may or may not cause radio frequency noise on the 12vdc lines. Also, color temperature is an important issue unless you don't care about the light and it's effects for reading, etc. Normal temp for the old dynosaur incandescent is approx 2800 k. A lot of led bulbs are 6500k and cast a very blueish light. 3000-3200k led bulbs are available if you find that you wish to have the same light temperature. Also important is the lumens that the bulbs put out...more is better. Task lighting over kitchen counters, etc especially need higher light output. Do your homework and try a bulb before going wild buying a bunch.

M4 Products (www.m4products.com) is where I got my replacements and have been happy with them/no issues. They also have some good info on the different light colors/intensities
