No boxes, instructions just lights, switches and harnesses.

They wouldn't let me test them there so i was unsure about them. When I was leaving the guy that worked there said I could leave a bid on them and if they didn't sell I could get them for the bid. So I put in a bid on them of $200 each ($600 for all).

Well got a call a call this afternoon saying they accepted my bid on two of them and come and get them. Hauled my butt there and told the guy I wanted to test them before I paid and he let me. He said the third one went for $300. They both lit up and I handed him the money and off I went.

I'll have too see what the light output is tonight. They are petty heavy and seem well made with glass covering the LEDS. The have weather seal connectors and lighted switches. The housing is finned and appears to be cast aluminum as are the mounting legs.

Now if I can just find a high pinion 44 I'd be happy.

Here are some pics of them.
Ill pay you 250 for one of them!

Camera doesnt due them justice. It lights up all the way across the street and is pretty damn bright. You cant see in the vid, but the numbers on the garage across the street lit up bright.

Thats why I went with headlight covers. They still look smoked but you can yank them off at night.

I just plastidipped the grill insert on my 04 it stuck out when it was silver.

It is fine. Not glossy at all. Really flat and hasn't faded or chipped at all. Had it about 3 months. Did my wheels and badges at the same time.

For plastidip just makes sure its clean and dry. No need to sand or prep. Just spray on. I was about 10-12 inches and just overlayed stripes till the silver was gone. Then did it again about 15 minutes later.
