If only there was a good LED replacement option for the square headlights.
There are good E-code replacements for the square headlights. They will accept LED bulbs if you want to go that way.

Not a mistake if you're happy with it.

The Trucklites aren't crap, you could do a whole lot worse and spend a lot more money doing it.

Maybe I wasn't clear about the pricing - $79 without relays OR (not and) $119 with relays and better bulbs, TOTAL for everything. So the most you could pay would be $119 if you went top-of-the-line. ...
