Cheap Lights

What do you guys think of these lights for a cheap solution? They look comparable to others that I have seen which sell for alot more.

thats what I was thinking. I need about 4 when I finally decide what Windshield Light Bar I want. For $80 for 4 lights how can you go wrong? Even if they dont last that long I wont feel bad at all!

I used to have 4 KC lights on my jeep and 4 of the other cheap ones like those pictured. The KC lights were allready on my jeep when I bought it and I put the others on about a year after. The KC lights still look almost new the others rusted faster than it even seemed possible.

The first link looks just like the KC Daylighters including the mounting.

Since I couldn't afford expensive lights I went with the Harbor Freight ones - kit comes with all wiring and a switch. Only the relay missing. They work well and I've had no problem with them. Being oval they actually give a pretty good pattern. Pretty good for $25.

I saw that one too but was unsure as I couldn't find reviews. How bright are they and how far does the light go?

I can't compare to others but they extend well beyond the stock brights. Have a nice bright spot but still light up on the sides as well. I think that is a result of the shape.

Isn't the second link just like these but without the wiring and for $13 cheaper. If I buy 4 of the ones you showed me I will be paying $100 but if I buy the ones in the second link it will be $48. I can buy lots of wire with $52. Which do you guys think is a better light between the 2 links?
