LED fogs/LED "cube" lights on the front

those that have them, or any LED lights on the front for that matter, weather they can be used with oncoming traffic or not, did you go with spot lights or floods? or both? or a single one but the "combo" ones that i guess are both built into one? i'm curious what most like better, i think the spots because they project further. i have a set of each (not installed yet) but i want a couple more for the front bumper, i'm thinking of going with the spots though.

It depends on the lights. I have some lower power floods that don't blind anybody. Beings how they are actually in a fog light position buy some "fog" leds. They should be ok. I put high power spots on my wifes jeep in place of her stock fogs. I had to aim them right at the ground in front of the jeep or they would blind somebody. Still makes for some decent light though

I have yet to find smaller LED's that are as luminous as Halogens for a reasonable price. While they have reduced in price. Just not enough for me to change mine out yet.

I replaced the bulbs in my fog lights with LEDs. Since they don't have that cutoff line like headlights do they can be blinding to to oncoming traffic.

But they are extremely bright and a great flood light even in the stock housing.

I personally split the difference. I have driving light. I knew I didn't want spots down low. I put bars in the grill.

Mine work great. Actually work in the fog and have enough distance to help at night on the really dark country roads. But wide enough to matter through turns.

I have Rigid D2

Yeah, I'm with auburngrad. I mounted an additional pair of driving lights and just used those when I need more light (in my case any time the high beams come on), and I left my stock halogen fogs alone. You could easily do the same with LED or HID or whatever else exists out there, of course. I just used PIAA "Xtra" bright halogens, and they are great.

I have these:
9145 LED Fog light Kit | 9145 LED Upgrade

I'll try to get some pictures tonight. They're more than bright enough to drive at night without the headlights. I don't do that, they're just that bright.
