    Which would be brighter between the 886 fog type bulb mod and LEDs? Which style of LED did everyone else use?

    I have 886's and have absolutely no complaints. Much more light compared to stock.

    I tried LEDs and while they were white, the light output was miserable compared to the 886 bulbs.

    I have the Cree LED projectors, they are very bright, but light output right near the truck (that you need to be able to see anything in the camera) is much reduced because they are throwing light out away from the truck.

    I'm sure that's up for debate, could be considered better for both applications because of the flood pattern of the light output.
