Default Truck-lite 7" LED Headlight

Anybody running these? I ran across a post from Brain talking about them here. I seem to find myself in BFE at night quite often, after several close calls with deer I'm wanting better lights. Opinions, feedback?

Then found this

Truck Lite 7" LED Headlights....installed & testing - MX-5 Miata Forum

They are on ebay for $360 shipped a pair.

$360 for headlights? Why? Just because they're LED?

For less than $75 you can have H4 conversions. Great light, nice cutoff, fits like stock.
See this thread for links: https://www.miataturbo.net/general-m...version-69268/ I bought the set as linked by matthewdesigns.

Most of the reviews in the Miata world are from guys switching from H4 conversions, the reviews are overwhelmingly positive. Their life is like 15k hours, bet they are still worth $250 used.

Keith has the GE Nighthawks (potentially the same thing) on one of his cars, and the output and cutoff look absolutely incredible.

My E-codes with H4 bulbs aren't that great...I could try better bulbs, but effort/money.
