So much work for $5.

If the eBay guy is offering now to ship free, I don't see the advantage of someone receiving all these and having to pay again to ship. Thanks for the work, but it looks like best route is to just order up on eBay.

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?
I think the second link I posted is for those lights, I've had both and prefer the light from the clear version. I do like the way the phase 7 looks but the original version is brighter.

Why do the lights in the second link have a spotlight mount?

If we go the eBay route we should confirm that they are real and not knockoffs.

I'm sure I posted the wrong link or it is a different product.

edit I don't see a mount and they do look the same to me. I'm not getting in on this buy just being nice.

I like those original ones. Too bad they never came down in price it seems.

I just don't see the point in pursuing my leads anymore--not for $5 when we are talking $330... If it was $250, then I would be all over it. I'll keep my eyes on this thread if something extraordinary comes about...

I read somewhere that the original version had issues which is why they went back to the drawing board... Something to do with the pattern if I recall...

I would think these from the eBay link on pg 1 are legit, with all the Truck-Lite videos he has in the description I would think if he was running knockoffs he would be down by now. I can't find any poor reviews on this user for Truck-Lite products. If I don't hear anything by next week, I'll order a pair and confirm for everyone.

I guess it's time to throw in the towel on this group buy (at least on from my end). Like Matt, I'll just go ahead and order from the eBay seller on the 1st page and report back as well.

Just for archival purposes, here's what I found on my research:

1st Gen - 27250 - very similar looking to stock, due to the lens (this is what Ben is referring to on his post above)

2nd Gen - 27270 - this is supposed to be better than the 1st Gen but will not appear stock on your D or RRC. It has the upper half for low beams and full (top and bottom) for high beams.

2nd Gen heated - 07496 - this is the same as 2nd gen but has the heating element that turns on when temperature drops near freezing.

Good luck!
