Clear Lense Bulb Number?

Over the weekend I rewired all of my new LED's and Front clear lenses. The problem I have ran into the bulbs are called out for the top front parking lamps # 5008 (only offered in clear).
Issue is no one offers these in amber and Safari Hp informed me not to use a larger bulb #1156 (stated it will melt the lense). Anyone had this problem or suggestions for another amber buld that will fit without problems? The truck in the photo is not mine, however I do have the same clear top and bottom lamps. Thanks for the help!

Should be exempt if its an import on the 25 yr basis shouldn't it?

I used Amber LEDs in mine, can't see why you couldn't go that route? Its the color of the light that matters, not the lens.

I understand that the color matters, that is the topic of discussion. Are you satisfied with your LED Brightness? Also, Which LED's did you use and where did you find them? Did you use resistors?
I did look on ebay and they are allover it. However most do not list true sizes of the bulbs. Ebay, lists numerous cross references but very few 5008's.

I used 67-A15 LEDs from SuperBrightLEDs.com. My lenses are amber but you should get a similar result with clear ones (see pic of bulb only). I am happy with mine.

Perfect! Thank you very much.

Did they require resistors or speed up your flashing pattern?

Yes these are the side lights, parking lights, running lights, whatever you want to call them. They are clear on ROW trucks and Amber on NAS. The bottom ones should be your turn signals and are always Amber except on some later ROW trucks. No resisters needed for the side lights, just fit the bulbs and go. You can always buy some Amber lights if you are really concerned about it but its easier and cheaper to just buy the bulbs. LEDs won't melt your lenses either.
