    man guys I've been looking around at the price of lights, and it's incredible how cheap the pro comp lights are. I'm trying to figure out why.

    has anybody used them, and are you happy with them?

    Because they are made by four wheel parts and dont have to buy them from the supplier. Its just like how summit racing stuff is cheaper than other stuff.

    Ran the 130 ones for years.............and they are great lights. Never had a problem with anything..........other than a bit of rust when I moved to PA.............road salt sucks.

    Worth every penny.

    well 130 watt lights $34.95 each (black) driving lights (pair) $36.95, fog lights (pair) $51.95... driving &amp; fog lights are 55 watt.

    yea they are dirt cheap compared to others I have priced.

    Dang I've got the 6" lights from O'riellys and I only paid like $17 a peice for em and I light the nite up like it was day. Then again I have 9 of them. If I wanted them any brighter then I'd pay the extra $3 for the 130watt light bulb.
