It's probally a high pressure Xenon or mercury lamp.

I routinely deal with lamps priced from $200 to $10,000

Maybe a typo in their system? $7.99 seems more reasonable for a headlight from autozone.

Got any links to the bulb or pictures?

I put some Silverstars in the TJ, they were like $20 each and I'll never go back to regular bulbs.

They are incredibly bright and for me at least your eyes don't get as fatigued driving at night.
