At the risk of starting a flamewar, (a) are there actually people crazy enough to pay $102 for a pair of bulbs? (b) look at the chart on the linked page and some of the comments-because these are so bright expect a much shorter life, especially if you have daytime running lights (a year or less life), and (c) if you buy these expect to get a lot of headlight flashes from people like me who think you have your high beams on.
But a good find-for some, I guess. Brings down the price of these ultra bright, short life blubs to that of normal bulbs.

I don't drive an SUV or pickup so I'll bet the brightness won't be as much an issue. $102 regualr price? Well, I dow]ubt anyone paid that ever. A lot of Amazon's prices appear to be inflated. This one appears to be one of those cases.
As for short life - anytime you have a DRL system that utilizes the regular headlight bulb you will likely have shorter life. You'd expect it actually. I have used Ultrastar halogens and some of the other better bulbs and find they do have a shorter life. When installing make sure you wear a glove and don't tough the glass portion of the bulb. You leave oil from you fingers which will create a hotspot and burn the bulb out quicker than normal.
For the extra light these put out I think they'd be worth the shorter life.

FWIW all sizes are the same price but I will still stay with OEM's.
