I bought the clear ones of ebay....they arrived and are seem to be good quality. I had a pair on my TJ since day 1. I have not gotten around to installing them, since I blew my knee out two weeks ago skiing. Will eventually install them, but probally not until march.
Price is a bit high, but hey that's not unusual for JK parts. My concern is how dark are they really? I bought the Recon LED turns, and they were not anywhere near as dark as pictured in the add and ended up just tinting my factory ones. So, if these actually are nice and black as opposed to just "smoked", then I'd say go for it.
If you get them, post up pics for everyone. And have fun removing the side markers. lol

The VHT spray really is a better option. You can control exactly how dark you want it based on how many coats you apply, and if you do it right, and clear coat it, you'll look as good as any smoked lens you could buy.
GE2 has done it a few times I think, and they always look factory when done.
I used those... The bulbs that came with them caused them to bubble out some... But it does not look like damage was done to the actual plastic and it stopped once it got to a certain level... Has not changed since and actually looks like it was made that way... Kinda looks cool.
ok, ive seen many people use the VHT on brake lights and alot of the times they look crappy, like almost a "matte" or grayish kind of effect compared to professional methods that car shops do, is this because they likely didnt use a clear coat?
