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.

after i finish installing my new front bumper (bumper in these pics is my old one), i'm gonna mess around with mounting this bracket and see how i like it. not sure if i will or will not use it, but it's been sitting in my closet for years.

what do you guys think? it's a rally type light bar for my 04 Mini Cooper, but i'm never going to use it on there. i don't think it looks too bad on here, gotta see how it looks with the LED cube lights installed on it. i think if i can mount it somewhat stealthy looking, it may work out good.

also, the stock fogs are removed and won't be going back in, as i have a front hitch receiver i'm installing, and the particular one i have doesn't allow the fogs to be remounted in the bumper. if i end up using this, ill probably do all 4 spots, but also want to first see how the center 2 mounts look at night with spot cube LEDs, and the outside 2 mounts with flood cubes, slightly angled to either side. i think that combo may work nicely. will def keep you guys updated. been lazy lately, bumper just needs the brackets bolted to it adjusted slightly (just loosen the bolts, adjust then re-tighten) then bolt the hitch and bumper on and ill be done. then i can mess with positioning this light bar.

i want to do a light bar above the windshield also. those with them, flat vs curved...pros/cons? and i think those they have the flood/spot combos like i believe was stated earlier in this thread IIRC.

How much brighter are they?
Are they too bright to use in traffic?

Yes Sir. They arrived in 3 days, and I put them in that evening. Haven't been flashed yet. Output is good. I love 6000K's and wanna get these with V-LED's to match the color:
