Default Looking to replace tailights with LED units...

I've looked at the RECONS and the Spyders, as well as the cheap E-Bay offerings, I just wanted to get some feedback for reliability long term durability from those with some experience. I'd hate to pay $300 or $400 dollars for a set and have problems, and I really prefer a $200 or cheaper set, just being honest here... Any suggestions..??

My last truck, as well as my truck now, has had only e-bay sets of led tail lights, never had a problem with them at all. Technically they should last well past the life of the truck.

I too had the cheaper eBay taillights on my previous truck and had absolutely no issues with them, don't be swayed by the lower price.

Are there any LED tail lights that are actually brighter than the stock halogen tail lights? Anytime I see aftermarket ones, they always look dimmer.
