Oracle headlight help

Hello fellow Jeepers!

Quick question, but not sure how quick the answer will be...

Anyways, I've recently been looking into the oracle LED headlight conversion for my '95 YJ but I'm unsure where to buy the actual headlights... I've found them on eBay but delivery has been estimated for around a month after the order has been placed and I'm not really wanting to wait all that time. Plus, I'd have to pay a large amount in shipping alone...

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated and helpful,

Thanks!
Max

Ps. I've attached a picture of the product.

I have those lights in mine, but I got them from Ebay.

I will tell you this, in order to make them work, you have to take the head light bucket out of the grille and trim the opening in the back larger so that the housing will fit in there. And if you are using the bigger bulbs, then you have to do the head light relay mod, or the high beams will overload the head light switch and cause it to kick the internal breaker and the lights go out.

Since you bought yours on EBay, I look at the description and the post has headlights for $99 but when I read the description it says EACH. Does that mean I have to buy a second one? Or does a pair come in the box?

I had a guy I'd talked to about that and he said he ordered 1 of whatever "each" entitles and he said he got both because there's NO WAY he'd spend $200 on a set of headlights. I think we'll all just have to do a little more digging...

I have the headlights, they came as a set in the box. But I took out the stock bulbs which are 55W low beam and 65W high beam. And installed a new set that are 85W low beam and 120W high beam. This is what I was talking about before when I said about doing the head light relay mod.

These headlights with the stock H4 bulbs in them are basically junk, a standard halogen headlight produces more light than the H4 stock bulbs. But, with these you get the cool looking green halo LED's.

Thanks for the information! I was just curious since on the Oracle site it says

"- Box Contents: x1 - ORACLE 7x6" Sealed Beam Headlight with pre-installed ORACLE LED Halo"
