Converting to LED's need help identifying bulbs

I am in the process of converting my 2008 HR Endeavor interior lights over to led's. I have ordered the 12V 5M 500CM Waterproof White 5050 300 LED SMD Flexible Strip Light 3M-Tape
for the florescent fixtures along with the connector kits, but I am not sure what to use in the 17 round lights in the ceiling and under the cabinets. I know these lights are presently halogen but I see no marking on them. Also I have two more round lights that are over the driver and passenger seats that are a larger bulb than the other ceiling lights. Anyone know what bulbs are in there now and any suggestions as to the best LED replacements. From the other LED threads here I am pretty sure I need G4 but is that the larger or smaller bulb? Don't want to order 17 and find out I only have two.

Not that I can see. Smaller ones have no markings larger ones have a wattage marking only.

Drifter, (mike) did this maybe a year ago. He started a thread I think. Had all the numbers you need.

Unless I can find someone with an 08 Monaco or HR who has done this I suspect my next trip will be to the auto parts store to compare my bulb with a G4 halogen bulb. The suggestion to look in the owners manual for part numbers works for all the other lights but under halogen it only shows how to replace not what bulb to use.

Mike
Found a thread with pictures of the start of his project but no numbers. Sent him a PM. Hopefully he will respond.

Thanks

Brian,
Look for G4 base, side pin, led lamp of at least 125 lumen, color warm white for the puck lights under the cabinets.

Here is a good source.

We replaced several of the ceiling lights in our '06 Dynasty with LED's, a little over a year ago. I've quite doing that, until I find LED's that are rated for a bit over 12V. Apparently our Magnum Pure Sine Wave inverter/charger goes high enough, from time to time, that it is killing the LED's. The original halogen bulbs put out such a pleasant colored light, and seem to have such a long life, and at a fraction of the cost of the LED's. For us, I guess new isn't necessarily better. Nearly half of the LED's we installed have failed.
