Replacement lens for original Sahara driving lights

Has anyone tried to get a replacement lens for the original driving lights mounted on the front bumper of Sahara Wranglers?
One of mine is cracked on my 2001 Sahara and the dealer says I will have to buy a complete new set of lights, no replacement lens available, for the small sum of around $150. Surely someone makes just the lens as with these mounted up front they must get broken a lot, and $10-$15 ought to be a big price just for a lens.

I've looked before and never had any success. I know KC makes a direct replacement that connects to the factory harness and has a built in stone shield for $75. For about the price of one new factory light you could replace them both with KC's.

I'd love to find one too. One of mine has actually had a chunk of the lens about the size of a nickle knocked out of it for years. Honestly I'm kind of surprised it still works.

I believe they are fog lights, not driving. Big difference

That was my very thought a couple years ago when I noticed one of mine was cracked. A quick trip to the dealer and all would be taken care of, WRONG. Guess the thing to do would be to sell the remaining good lens on eBay before it gets broken for $75 and buy a new set of KC lights.

I can get a single one thru my dealer for $75.... but dang.... I guess I'll just leave it cracked till it quits working. Looks tougher that way any how.....

Tried several web sites selling KC driving lights that will connect to the TJ wiring harness and the best price I could find was $125 for the set. Most were $70-$80 each. Am I missing a good deal somewhere?

They have clear lens instead of the yellow ones used on fog lights so I just assumed they must be driving lights.

No actually those sound like better deals. I was talking about the ones from Quadratec. They sell for $75 a piece. The ones you found for $125 for the set sound like a really good deal. I was just saying that if you bought two of those KC lights at $75 a piece they would just about total a brand new single light from the dealer.

Fog lights can be yellow or clear. I believe the KC Fogs are clear.

No, that does sound like a good price for the pair. When I was looking for these last year, best price I could find was around $80/light. My X already had the wiring, but not the multifunction switch or relay. I decided to put PIAA fogs on instead. Besides they matched my driving lights.
