    ebay wants about 315 shipped for the new style lights 1TBP39H.

    for 87 bucks shipped each i can buy 3 sets of old style ones.
    that means i can mount 2 sets on my plow gear and an other set on my head rack. i'm sure that would be more then enough light.

    cheaper and work efficiently means more money in my pocket!
    that is the goal isn't it?

    please convince and justify to me why it is cost efficient to spend 315 for the new style lights?

    Because they are more efficient and more effective.

    they are not cost efficient,

    as it stands now, i have lights on my head rack, lights on my sander, head lights on my truck and plow lights.... when i'm out at night there isn't much i can't see. all my lights combine do not cost as much as the new set of curtis lights. i'm just not convinced

    I disagree. How many watts are you using when all of your lights are on. I have plow lights and a set of rear-facing work lights and they are seldom on together. I recently upgraded to HID, and I'm not going to let you tell me that those are inefficient. Eventually, I would like to convert all of my auxiliary lights to LED. This should maximize efficiency of perimeter lighting. Cost is not the only trade-off when talking about efficiency. Current draw/watt should also be considered....;)
