There are also the Perei lamps that mudstuff sells.

Both are more expensive than the Wipac lamps but both are superior quality to the Wipac lamps.

I just installed the MuddUk set on our truck. They look great! Mudd sent them FedEx from the UK and received them about 3 days after ordering.

I appreciate your generous offer to assist us across the pond. I would love to have a set of the trucklite ones. Colored lenses. 2xs red. 2x-s amber 1x-clear for reverse. Is it possible for you to work up a price?

This is fantastic. Thanks again
Jonathan

Truck-lite is a US based company? Confused why you are looking to the UK for a US company.

Zack, see below. Unless something has changed, they're not DOT approved, therefore even though TL is a US company, the lights are not available here.

As I said in the other thread about 3 days ago, they're also not DOT approved, so you won't find your local AutoZone or even any hook-ups you may have with a TruckLite employee (like I had tried) to carry them for you on this side of the pond.

Firstly, I have to declare that I am the owner of MUD-UK.

We sell the Perei lamps over and above the Trucklite lamps purely because the Perei lamp is what LR fits to their special edition Defender models and offers customers (in Europe!) as a factory upgrade. Without getting into the fine detail of which is best, it simply makes more business sense for us to sell the Perei lamps.

I can get hold of the Trucklite/Rubbolite lamps easily in the UK for anyone who wants them.

Couple of things.

The Trucklite lamps are only available in coloured lenses. No Clear lens option.

The Trucklite lamps DO NOT come with Econoseal connectors fitted. I can supply these as a stand alone item if anyone needs them.

Trucklite lists a separate plinth for its lamps which is massively expensive! My supplier has checked and has confirmed that the Trucklite lamps drop into the Perei/OE plinths perfectly.

Prices:
Stop/Tail: 30 each
Turn Signal 35 each
Fog 30 Each
Reverse 70.00 each

Plinth (OE): 8.00

Econoseal 2-pin male connector: 3.00
Econoseal 3-pin male connector: 3.00

The turn-signals will be supplied with an LED plug and play relay.

To order drop an email to mud@mudstuff.co.uk or call us quoting D90.com rather than post your order here or message here.

Shipping to US by Fedex 40.00

All prices ex VAT.

He's saying that the Stop/Tail/Fog/Turn signals do not come in clear, but Reverse does.

Kev, how about offering a group buy with a minimum of 15 orders or something like that, and offering 15% discount after that threshhold is met. With the exchange rate, your prices are a bit higher than the last time I helped put together a group buy of these.

For those with NAS 1995-97 trucks, you won't need the plinths as these match right up with the plinths that should/are already installed.

For all of the rear lights, here is a rough idea of what it will all cost you for a NAS truck:

**2x Stop/Tail Light = 60 = $95.40
**2x Turn Signal Light = 70 = $111.30
**1x Reverse Light = 70 = $111.30
**3x Econoseal 2-pin male connector = 9 = $14.30
**2x Econoseal 3-pin male connector = 6 = $9.54
**Shipping to US by Fedex = 40 = $63.60

Total: 255 = $405.00

Not the best photo, but the lights look great. Identical to what's on Mudd's website.
