truck lite led on ebay?

So I found a pair of truck lite led phase 7 headlights for 311 bucks on ebay with free shipping. Im a little nervous on buying from ebay? He does have good feedback. Worth it?

make sure you read the fine print. it says the "anti-flickering" harness that you need for the Jeep is not included. most other companies include that in the sale.

It usually cost extra to have the anti-flicker harness included.

I saved a few bucks buying the trucklites and anti flicker harness separate. The seller in eBay charges sales tax if shipped to Illinois.

I will not worry about buying from that seller, they will be the same trucklite every other shops are selling. Make sure you get the anti-flicker harness. I've been looking for trucklite also a month or 2 ago and found ebay is the cheapest where I can get them. Some people have loyalty to some online stores but I don't.

I ended up just getting a pair of Philips Xtreme Vision (100% more?) is a little improvement over the stock bulb in the meantime. I'm kinda surprised there are no new players in the market considering the brightness of LED chips have been going up and cost have been going down quite significantly. Price of LED bulbs used at home have at least dropped 50% in a year but Trucklite and JW Speaker are still about the same price.

I buy stuffs from eBay all the time and I also have sold hundreds of stuffs on eBay. Check the feedback of sellers and if they have thousands of positive feedbacks they will be most likely authentic sellers. Every volume sellers will have some bad cases which isn't a big deal.

I think you are safe to go forward. I ve been watchin this seller on Ebay. He/she sells a lot and the price is the best ive seen so far. Make sure you buy anti flicker harness separate from also ebay-its $30 a piece.

Last, please don't buy them all guys, leave some for me im still debating whether i should get them now or next year

I asked my clearbra installer about that recently and he said it will be fine. He is an authorized Xpel dealer.

you guys with the TL's, can you tell me if you are impressed with the high beams specifically? Do they blow the stock high beams away or is it just a mild improvement? I ask because someone on another thread just bought the Speakers and was disappointed in the high beam output. Said it was not that big a difference (on the Speakers) switching from low to high.

From what I have read I heard the truck lite low beam compared to stock is a decent upgrade. But the truck lite high beam is phenomenal and makes the stock high beams look like poop.

The high beams are great. Road signs are blinding with high beams. Ive had mine for a year now. No issues with scratches. Snow builds up every so often but I just clear them before I take off. I do need the anti flicker harness. Its getting more noticeable.

Awesome, ty! Was really shocked to hear that the high beams on the Speakers are not that great (especially for the $$$ they cost).

I was impressed with the high beams. I dont think it bothered the oncoming much at all, but it sure lit up the road ahead! Low beams were much better than stock, but i agree, the highs were fantastic!
