Difference in halo projector headlights

Thinking about putting a set of the double halo projector head lights on my truck. I see the ones from Recon are $6-700 and there are some on eBay from P.S. Team and DT Moto that are $3-400. They look identical in the picture, wondering why the big difference in price and if you get what you pay for?

They're both crap IMO. Headlight projection beam sucks, not true hid projectors. What you need is a hid projector retrofit. View the link in my profile or look at Tony97gt's how to thread- it's more detailed than mine and put together nicely.

Cary at ct performance does this for business, he's a site vendor

Yes, stay FAR AWAY from the HID bulb stuck in the OEM headlight.
