    I recently bought some headlights, LED bumper lights and side markers for ebay and it was a freakin disaster. First it took two weeks to get the damn things and then once i got them the headlights didnt fit at all and while i was tryin to put them two of the plastic pieces snapped off. Then the LED bumper lights are so dim they are useless. im thinking since the plastic pieces snapped they arent going to let me return them either.

    Why didn't they fit? Were they made for your rig, or did you order the wrong ones?

    I bought the right ones, they were designed for my truck but they stick out about 3-4 inches past the grill as if if my truck just saw the virgin mary and has hue bug eyes!

    My truck is a 97, and yes i took the old ones off and even had my neighbor who is a mechanic come give it a try and he conceded as well with the conclusion that they were either defective or just very poorly designed.

    What is defective about them that does not allow them to fit your truck? It's beginning to sound like they sent you the wrong ones rather than just a simple "fitment" problem. Check your order numbers & make sure what numbers you ordered are the same as what they sent you. Whatever the case use Metalutzs post above & send them back. Explain that you also had your mechanic look at them & he concurred with your asessment that they're a POS.

    You know, i never took a picture of them when i had them on. Now that you say that i wish i had because it did look kind of funny.

    Don't take this the wrong way.....

    This why I don't recommend ebay unless you are absolutely sure of what your buying. I prefer to buy from local shops..one you keep money in your community second if something doesn't fit you have an actual person to talk to.

    You might pay a few extra bucks but its worth it when you have to send stuff back etc....

    Plus who wants to put cheap stuff on your rig anyway.:glasses:

    Not that all ebay stuff is cheap quality but most is I believe when it comes to aftermarket stuff.

    sstoner, i completely agree with you. i guess i had a momentary lapse of judgment. i then went out and bought new headlights from a local shop and you are correct, they fit and look exactly like they should.

    Ebay protects it's buyers. If you have a problem with the seller, open a case with ebay. You will get results. It might cost you return shipping but you will get your full payment back.

    That sucks, I've always had good luck on for car parts, just be sure and checkout their contact info, return policy, ratings, blah blah blah! Worst thing I've done was bought a watch for $1.95 with $24.00 in shipping from Hong Kong, lol was a good seller and a fine looking automatic chronograph watch, but the self-winder was pretty much crap, you could rotate it and watch it stick Vs. a quality watch like Citizen, Seiko, etc. Lesson learned.

    It's not That aftermarket or Ebay sucks. Most of us have aftermarket items on our rigs. Plus Ebay does have access to things you won't find at your local places. It still comes down to watching what and who you buy from as there are mistakes made and bad deals at local shops and on line. Also asking questions before you buy and before you (try to/or) install your new parts.

    I bought my headlights off ebay. I've had nothing but GREAT luck with them. They fit great, everything went on smooth, and I got everything on time.

    But I'd rather buy something in person, than order it.
