Dash lamps for 69 truck

Would like to hear your suggestions for dash lamps. RockAuto shows the following, among several others:

Wagner #1445 -- 1.94 watts
Wagner #1816 -- 4.29 watts

They also list LL (long life) versions of the above with the same wattage specs.

Obvious I'd want the higher wattage bulbs, but are those specs correct?

FYI, AC-Delco has a L1445, but they don't show wattage.

Also, I want to get a few bulb sockets. Will I need both 1/2" and 5/8"?

The truck is at my son's house 1500 miles away, so I can't pull the instrument panel to check it.
