    I have ebay black lights but with the amber lenses. Quality is pretty good, however there was a fittment issue with the lower plastic piece below the headlight -- no biggie. My sig lights are ebay lights.

    EDIT: My seller was 'revotec' I've heard of condensation issues with these lights from other sellers. Mine have been top notch and I live in a very high humidity environment.

    Here's the direct link for anybody else... http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/05-0...Q5fTruckQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories#ht_3031wt_1375

    I'd say yes -- haven't noticed a difference between the stock and these.

    those lights are cool. they look the same as doing the BHLM except for the silver reflector and clear blinker lense.

    Wiring is plug and play (NOTE: some models may require modifications to fit) the 05-08 models are the same, so why would it require modifications...... eh i would just the BHLM..... JMO

    i'm not being a jerk, but it says to heat the oven to 200F and put them in for 8 minutes. i heated mine to 305F and put them in for 9 minutes and that wasn't even enough.
