A fella on here has them and i asked him about them and he said they are holding up good. only thing he noticed was that the light pattern off to the sides was a little different. wasnt good or bad, thats just the only different he found. my buddy is running the same brand on his 6.0 and they are holding up great after two years.

if you decide you buy the ebay ones let me know, i may be interested in your stock ones. im wanting to do a projector retro fit which takes a few days and i dont want to have my truck down so i was looking for a spare set. i was contemplating just buying those because they are so cheap.

Okay I can do that, as long as those lights are worth the money then I'd say I'll go for it

If you are buying the cheap $130 ones be careful. I bought some clear ones and holy cow they are cheaply made!

Very accurate. I have them on my truck. Had them on my 06 with no problems. The left one on my 6.4 let in some moisture in the car wash, haven't done anything about sending them back because I intend to take my factory set apart and do some custom painting.

I just installed a set on a 6.0 today. i was checking out the quality and they didnt seem to be any different structure wise. Its a customers truck so i didnt get to see the light difference at night.

Both of my headlights came with cheap rubber where the bulbs go. One headlight is so loose that you don't even have to get use the adjustment knob you can just push or pull on that screw. If you have led lights in the markers you won't be able to use them in the new lights unless they are super small. Both headlights don't have room for them. Lastly my headlight bulbs were hard as hell to twist in because they are so cheap. I'm incredibly dissatisfied but I guess expected when you only pay $130.00.
