Check out illuminationleds.com
I've had both rigid and the illumination LEDs and the quality and brightness is equal, both come with lifetime warranties, and illumination is a third of the price! They sell both 6 LEDs and 4 LEDs in the same pod styles. Check them out, I highly recommend them

There are so many variables to your question.
You want a light with true optics stay south of a 30degree beam - preferably 10 or 20 to punch out past the hood and give you the distance you need anyway.
Do not look at "number ofLEDs" look at true (not raw) lumen output and look at lumen readings at the work surface (distance).
If you want independant honest and educated answers just pm me. I'm most happy to help, I do not sell lights but I've been in the lighting world over 20years

So then how do something like this rate?
I've been looking around and all the specs and measurements seem close to the others. biggest differance is price

I took the in between route, driving:
Rigid Industries D2 LED Light - Driving
Normally we are either in the suck of some canyon or "screaming" down a fire road so the floods or spot won't really do us any justice in those cases as we want to see what is on the side of the road as well as down it as far as we can. If you compare the plots of the flood and the driving you will see that width wise they are pretty close but on range the driving is just a tad better. Out here in the desert on moonless nights, it is dark, talking coal-miner butthole dark, so I opted for a little more range vice spread.
Guess the best scenario would be, spots on the windshield and floods on the bumper. Wouldn't want the floods on the windshield due to possible hood glare.
BTW: "screaming" down the dirt roads for us is considered to be when the auto door locks engage. lol....

Windshied lights.. What to look for in LED?
I have the typical round Hella lights now and thinking of moving to the cube LED lights. What's the norm when it comes to those??
4 or 6 LED per housing?
What viewing angle to look for?
Spot or flood?
