If its a matter of "need" you can get replacement halogen lenses for much cheaper. There are also upgraded lenses available that put out more light (Cibies, e-codes, and some DOT compliant options).

If you are looking for an upgrade, I would stick to the brands you know, preferably with a warranty. Often times you get what you pay for which cheaper ebay stuff. This looks like a per light cost, so you are going to be at $330 already, plus you will still need to buy anti flicker harnesses. For $50 more (after forum discount) you can get the Quadratec lights and a 3 year warranty.

I've written off Fleabay. It's all Chinese knock off garbage.

Just waaaaaay too many issues to make it worth saving a few bucks.

Sellers have become very savvy at sliding around returns on defective merchandise. No warranty, no customer service, no recourse whatsoever if you get a piece of junk.

All they have to do is keep making promises until 90 days passes then they'll tell you to eff off.

Can't even leave negative feedback anymore. They whine and lie to Ebay and get it removed without even asking YOU the buyer what really happened.

Save your money, buy some decent lights, don't set yourself up for disappointment.

Ive got a set of them coming with green halos so I will see if they are any good. If they are anything like the 50" led light bar I bought for $140 versus $1k others wanted they will be worth every penny.

I predict they'll be a lot closer in performance to that LED bar than to the quality headlights that cost $$$.

These are the ones I bought.
2 7inch Jeep Wrangler JK Harley Halo Angel Eyes CREE LED Headlights Hi Low H13 | eBay

I hope they perform as well as the cheap led light bar .Its freaking bright as the sun.

Just like the cheap Led bar I can by many for the cost of one of the "good ones ". If they are junk and dont last I can back up and punt. If they are decent and last I scored.I feel like I scored on the Amazon led bar.

Update. I have the lights installed for about a week now and I had a flicker when the engine was running only ,so I ordered the truck light anti-flicker 96830-3 and they work like a charm. I dont have anyone local with the JW speakers to make a compare but I am very pleased with the lights performance so far. Now the test will be how long will they last. The green halos look nice as well. I guess time will tell .
