    I think you'll find that true fog beam pattern lights are very different than most LED light bars in the type of lighting they produce. A fog light produces a wide, flat beam with a very distinct upper and lower cutoff. Most LED bars are either driving pattern or flood pattern. Either way, they generally have more "reach" than fog lights. Because of this, with a good fog light, you can run them most any time and not have to worry about turning them off for oncoming traffic. LED light bars cannot be run with anybody coming the other way.

    If you want to learn about the best fog lights, the following post should answer all of your questions.
