Yes, link shows $165.50 for one headlamp... if it's indeed $131 each, I'm in.

Matt, there are other dealers that TL gave me... I'll call them tomorrow as well.

Sorry, I spaced on both link and price. It is 331 for the pair, $165.50 each. I corrected it right away, but damn you guys are quick!

All these talks about these damn Trucklites, plus seeing how bright they are the other night, I'm sold on these.

I'm watching this thread very closely!

Something will pan out, I think there are at least 20 people that want these, and I'd like to think some distributor would like a 5K-6K group buy.

Seems there could be a connection with someone here in the community and a TL distributor that would help out some.
I've mentioned it before, but we have a Trucklite forum member here. I could try to reach out to him again. Last time I contacted him I was looking for stuff non DOT compliant and he wasn't able to facilitate. Understandable though.

I am getting a price for the non heated pair-- I'll see if I can get a price on both. I'm working through the eBay seller levineautomotuve so we don't double up...

Hi guys, just a quick update... I spoke with a few TL distributors, from specialty truck fleets to your typical auto parts shop and the price for the non-heated pair is nowhere close to that of the eBay link from page 1 of this thread.

The seller from that eBay link is in CT and he's not willing to come down on price and he's very confident that we won't find anything cheaper than $332 per pair, which comes with free standard shipping. (I'm afraid he's turning out to be right)

Josh is trying to hunt down the TL guy who's a member of this forum and hopefully we get something there soon.

Having said all that, it looks like the TL guy might be our last hope, otherwise, $332.45 for the pair, shipped, might be our best bet.

Here is the direct link to the ebay seller I am negotiating with. Truck Lite 27270C 7" Round LED Headlights Pair Hummer Jeep Wrangler CJ TJ JK | eBay He is already at $331/pr free shipping and I am seeing what he will move to--I have asked for both a group buy to one location as well as individual if he will budge--he seemed interested.

If we did a group buy, do any of you work for a firm that does a ton of shipping? I know that some of the manufacturers that I work with that ship all day get a much better shipping rate than individuals--I am wondering if someone could handle something like that to help keep costs down?

Any word from the TL club member?

Thanks for the work on this. His price would need to be enough to justify the cost for someone here to ship again and total be south of 331. If this can be done right on. Shipping prices can get up there when you start doing across country with insurance from what I've experienced. Keep us updated, appreciate your time.

Chris, that's awesome, looking forward to it. I pm'd Josh this morning and he will look for the TL guy from his old emails. I'd be happy to track him down and find out if there's a deal we can make.

I did talk to TL and they directed me to their distributors. Thanks for helping out. Hope we can get this off.

The original version (12v, but the same as on military trucks) are brighter and look awesome in my opinion. I would think the purists would like them better too.

http://www.discountfleetsupply.com/tlc27250c.html

That store has every popular led headlamp.

I'm fairly certain these are the same:

He says there is just very little wiggle room and they are already the lowest so they could do $5 off, so not much, but something--

I did see those too Ben, but I don't think they're the same as the spots you posted on your second link. I do agree that the lenses on those first gens make them appear more stock looking. I couldn't find them though.

Chris, $5 is better than nothing I guess... if we don't hear back from Josh's contact, do we just order directly from your eBay guy and handle individual shipping?
