LED fog lights

Anyone running these? Anzo USA 881002 - Anzo USA Stealth Vision High Power 4.5" Round LED Fog Light Kit - Quadratec

I'm debating between these or a set of slimlites for my hood. Haven't quite decided between hood lights or a lightbar. Ultimately may be both

If that's right, 3500 candlepower is not very much.

Try a set of Rigid Industries Dually D2; they're very bright.

You think that's bad, look for the LED light bar.

I would steer clear of the lights you posted. I have been researching and testing the latest in led lighting and I can pretty well guess those are worthless. If you want led lighting with real output you need to spend more or accept a smaller size light on your pillars.

Even the spot beam led lights throw light outside the beam. More so than I have seen with a focused spot halogen or hid reflector. The lights HD mentioned would be a much better choice. They cost twice as much but they are supposed to be damn bright. Don't know what the spread is like though.

For about the same price as the lights you posted you can get a set of vision x solstice solo pods or the original rigid dually. The solo pods put out great light for the price and size. The original rigid should be neck and neck. If you are looking for a light that looks good up on the pillar I think both pods I mentioned would look too small and out of place. If I were to run an led setup on the windshield it would be the vision x solstice 6" round light. They are more than double the price of what you posted per light. If you want to run quality led lights you need to bring your checkbook. Anything else is a waste of time.

I just ordered myself a pair of Rigid Industries Dually LED flood lights for my TJ.

I hope to do a review and write up on the install when they come in.

Candlepower isn't the factor, it's the quality of the reflectors and the lumens that the LED's put out.

They're just worklites parading as driving lights.

At the OP's pricepoint, HID wins the lumen war anyhow. But neither HID nor LED lend themselves to very good fog duty.

If the OP really wants a nice little foglight, try the Bosch Compact 100 or Hella Micro DE. Both affordable, both have excellent photometry for poor weather conditions.

If he is really using them for foggy road conditions, then yes, HID would be the best option.. but for lighting the road or trail more adequately than the headlights they do a damn fine job.

Still not sure on the Anzo products TBH.
