Sounds kinda hokey to me. However I've never been real big on Ebay myself.

Do you need 8 lights?

STOP RUN FAR AWAY.
I purchased a pair and they were pure crap. You get what you pay for! Pot metal housings, shitty rubber connectors with split rings to hold everything together, and whack electrical connections. I could not get them aimed level. I had to put spacers under the back of the bolts to try and get them leveled on my bumper.

I bought Hella 500s and 550s on ebay for a great price. Do yourself a favor and shop for a name brand!

I paid $68 for the 500's (mounted on the bumper) and $70 for the 550's mounted on my Garvin Wilderness Rack.

Both kits were complete with Lights, covers, hardware, wiring harness, relay and switch. I used my own switches and wiring,. but used the other kit parts.
