    I posted those because they all say the original prices are high and yet all of them are identicle and selling between $20 and $30. Just seems like a gimmik to me but still not a bad value for some LED lights.

    Oh yeah, definitely a gimmick to make you think you're getting a great deal. When in reality they may have started at $50 6 months ago :) I bought 4 cause I like dealing with newegg and it was a pretty decent deal.

    You bought 4 of the same ones? How have you liked them so far? decent light output? Did you get the square or round?

    I just ordered them on Saturday, so I can't comment on anything but price yet. I got 2 round and 2 square. I think the rounds are going on the truck light bar, and the square are going on my wheeler. But we'll see.

    I bought a pair of the round ones from Amazon, made by a brand called Tuff LED. They claim that theirs are the originals, and others are a knock-off but who knows. Set of 2 for under $50 shipped (Prime account). I put them in my All-Pro bumper as replacement fogs. Just a slight bend to the mounting tab and these fit right behind the fog light holes perfectly. Bright as hell (brighter than my headlights) but they only throw a good white flood beam for about 75' before they start to dissipate. Great for night wheeling in tight trails, but I get high beamed when I use them as driving lights.

    They are really built tough and come with all stainless hardware. Bolts/nuts are bigger than they need to be so they are strong as hell. The casings on the Tuff LED ones are built very well... better than my old PIAA's. Such a low power draw, you can use your factory wiring, too.

    Ordered two off Amazon as well. Should be in by the end of the week. I will post pictures. These are going into the factory fog locations, hopefully using the factory wiring. Unless the experts advise other wise.

    I put one of the round Tuff LED lights on my snow blower. It's brighter and whiter than a typical tractor headlight (par 36), but not by much. Looks pretty tough though. Not a replacement for high end off road lights, but a decent deal for the money.

    Seabass: Did you wire these up using your factory wiring harness and switch? Any tricks to doing so or is it pretty straight forward? Thanks!

    All you would need to do this is have a 9005 adaptor for the new fogs.

    I bought this and just used the ends I needed but these are great to get just to use the plugs too: ($3.09 shipped)
