Good eye man. I'm glad the ones I'm installing aren't made by them. Thanks for watching out for us!

Wal-Mart has the Yellow housing ones too. I junked those early and used the Red ones from Home Depot.

Tried 2 from Home Depot first and then replaced the Wal-Mart ones.



I've got the 2-STB side HPS mounted now.
