ebay lighting

Anybody have any experience with generic "KC Style" off road lights that are all over ebay?

Had a set on my YJ when I got it, OK for the price. One of mine didn't seal anymore and was always wet inside. The screws rust up and make it almost impossable to take apart to change the bulb. Of course when they get to that point it's probably best to throw them away and buy new which is what I ended up doing after spending too much time messing with them

BTW this is what I replaced them with, I was lucky and latched on to a couple of sets when they were only $29.95, really nice lights. But even at 39.95 they're a deal...

I went down the same road as Lancem. Save yourself the headache and bypass the ebay "deal" and do the Hellas if you are looking for a reasonably priced light.

Thanks for the input. I went ahead and ordered the Hellas as well. I will probably put the Hellas on the top hoop of my RRC bumper and put the ebay ones on the bottom mount tabs. Or I may just put the ebay ones on the rear bumper for recovery/"get off my ass" purposes.

Well, now I have these, but my damn bumper is on back order so I have nothing to mount them on. Boo.
