Headlight corner lens triangle prices?

When did these things skyrocket in price? Single one is over $50 now! I remember when these were sub $20. Did I miss something? Anyone have a condensation-free driver's side triangle lying around? :)

Thanks for closing the loop on this one! Guess I'll bite the bullet and get mine changed out too.

Did you buy the Hub extractor kit ($379) from Pelican as well, or did you use something else?...

What parts do you recommend replacing while in there? (such as the metal axle cap thing, etc).
