Gauge backlighting

Alright this may sound kinda stupid but I haven't found it anywhere else. Im replacing the gauges in my 86' c-10 with autometer gauges. The only ones that say anything about lights, are the ones that light up blue. Do any of the other gauges that they carry also have just a basic backlight to them?

If they don't mention the color of the backlight then it is a plain non colored baclight. Clear bulbs.

All the autometer guages I have worked with have a backlighting. I am using the old tyme guages in mine and they have great even backlighting and include various gel caps to change the color. I am using the red one and it looks great. I can take a picture if you like.

Thanks guys, I was just making sure before I bought some that they had lights in them. It kinda made me wonder since I could find anywhere that it said they did, and I know a lot of cheaper gauges don't have any lights.
Thanks
