Unhappy Need a Tail Light! Help PLS!!

hi guys
hoping someone can help me. At some point last year, i backed into a tree (oops) and cracked my driver side tail light. It was still functioning until Sandy filled it with water.
So, now i need a tail light. My brother suggested I look on ebay,
i found some for like 50 bucks for the one light, but then there are other listings on there for two, (that look a little different than the ones that are on my car) for like 75....
My brother says they may not be good quality and has left it up to me to figure it out and decide what to do. and i dont know how to do anything.
HELP!
I can link the ebay listings if that helps.
thank u thank u thank u

I bought one on amazon for life $50 and it is no different then the factory one. Ive had it for a year and it works great and doesn't feel or look cheap in any way.

Just check the return policy in case there's a problem with whichever light you get. Hopefully you were lucky and it was just the light assembly and not any metal or other damage. Replacing that light assembly is about a 3 minute job. You should also consider replacing some bulbs while you're at it. I try to keep my lights replaced by the pair since they'll typically burn out at about the same time.

well, let me clarify, it was a teeny tree that only touched the light, no other damage. it was a pretty small crack, which is why i didnt worry about it, everything was still working until it got filled with water during the storm. thanks for all the help, i think i'll look at rockauto.

I discovered my passenger side tail light was cracked and couldn't for the life of me figure out how it got that way. Then I was bringing in our big curbside trash can one night and noticed that the end of the handle forms a sharp corner. When I tilted the can to pull it on its wheels, that corner was the exact height of the crack and I pass right by the back right corner of my truck when putting the can in the garage.

Yeah, I apparently broke my own tail light and didn't even notice. D'OH!

Removed the tail light and sealed up the crack with super glue to keep the water out. So far, so good.
