    I have 4 trucks with meyer plows and I can not keep a set of lights in them. All of them are light sabers with 9003 halogen bulbs. This is the first year it has been a real problem didn't know if this is a common problem.
    Thanks for any help!

    could you be more specific on the problem? if your burning up bulbs it is a bad ground more than likely.

    I have read on here that there are a LOT of problems with these lights. I have a set and currently have a new pair ordered (different lights) because they have cracked and keep letting moisture in and blowing the bulbs. I have tried to seal them to no avial so they are getting replaced. Besides this problem I (along with others as it sounds) have problems with them staying aligned and they aren't bright enough.

    I have heard that the Saber II lights are tons better but couldn't bring myself to spend the $300 for the pair so I bought some square lights from NortherTool for $100.

    i know they've had problems wiht lens covers falling off and the biggest problem is the single bolt that holds it. they slip when you try to loosen/tighten the lights and since the top is sealed and you cant hold the head, you stuck. my plow is is 2 1/4 year old and they are doing it. my other plow was 2 yrs and 1 month and the lens covers popped off.

    Most of them will just explode! Maybe a moisture issue?

    I finally got my aftermarket lights and they are a little bigger but they work 10x better. The low beams are brighter than the highs were with the sabers. So far I am much happier with these than the others if anyone is interested.

    I went to my local truck supplier and got a set of Grote universal Plow lights.
    Make sure you match up your wiring diagrams! I learned the hard way and blew two of Meyers modules cost $130 to replace them .Now good to go. White on Meyers is low beam everybody else is Ground I think they do it on purpose. Just be careful because if you wire one wire wrong it will blow the module.Good Luck!!
    They cost apox. $100

    I got mine from NorthernTool.com They were $100 plus shipping. I didn't price them but know that NAPA has universal lights, too.

    I am REALLY happy with the ones from Northern. The lows are twice as bright as the high beam on the Saber.
