WJ headlights?

Hey all, sorry for the non tech sorta stupid question but I was wondering how many of you have tried some of the Ebay replacement headlights for the WJ? I was looking for pictures to see what all the different ones look like. Anyone have a preference? I'm sure certain ones are better quality than others, my only experience with ebay headlights were of less than desired quality.

I got some off eBay recently and have absolutely no complaints. Definitely easier than buffing the old ones (which I've done on other cars so I know what it takes).

Those are the smoked or tinted ones correct? They look good, especially on black.

Are you looking for a pretty basic replacement or one of those ones that come with angel eyes, led's, and what not.

I went with a basic replacement, but got a set that had the lower signal clear, instead of amber, like the one formeraudi posted. The casing was black. There is a chrome option available too.
These ones to be exact.

I bought a set of the OEM replacements for my 04. They were $84 so I didn't think I could go wrong, but 6 months later the clear is peeling off of them. I guess you get what you pay for.

Ones I got are by Eagle Eye. Had the choice of amber or clear signal lights. Went with the clear as I think it looks better. Worked great for my retrofit.

Eagle eyes, clear, for Limited and Overlands, with amber turn signals/parking lights, which I changed to LED's.
Bought from autoandart.

Hey cykaaro, where did you buy them from? Every listing I see on eBay has FREE US SHIPPING... but no shipping to Canada, or $90 or more shipping cost.

I got my Eagle Eyes from ebay in December. Still look perfect now. I've gotten a lot of compliments on how much it changed the look of the car.

I did projectors several years ago with HID's and they are amazing, I cant find the projectors I have anyplace anymore, and its hard to find housings with projectors that are HID compatible, best to build your own.

FWIW, there are a ton of projector housings out there that are designed for H4 bulbs and whatnot, and they also work very well with a clear clean light output with a sharp cutoff.

just my .02 !

Not Ebay, but I bought mine from Amazon. No complaints so far.
