the cheapest i found on ebay are for $310 shipped and yea they still have them and ive been looking at them too, just heard the mounts arent the greatest and the halos burn out easy. they are definitly a contender, i was just looking at the ones i posted for cheaper haha

Ehh...they look to japanese-fart-mobile-ish...just get new OEM-style lights! They aren't expensive at all on ebay, replaced my headlights on ebay, still working after a year and other guys on here have had them for multiple years with no fading.

Just put a pair of these on my ZJ yesterday. $33 shipped on eBay, and they definitely feel/look OEM!
