I view anything bought from Harbor Freight as "disposable."
If I can get a few uses out of it, I'm happy.

If I need to purchase something with any semblance of durability, I choose to shop elsewhere.

Perhaps their HIDs are the same Chinese ones that most places sell. But based on my past experience, I wouldn't expect them to last.

The Kragens are proven and as cheap as one can expect in the US for an offroad HID IMO. I have 2 of the 4" on my quad and ran 2 of the 7" on the Rhino and love'm

9" light would seem pretty big on a rhino if you get them take post some pics
the 4" seem like a perfect fit & the 7" look pretty good too

Harbor freight makes good jacks. HIDs, I doubt.
