Fog light choice

Alright I've narrowed my driving/fog light choice down to 3 things. Hella Micro FF fog light pattern. Hella Optililux 2020 fog/driving light combo, or getting stock ranger fog lights. Anyone have any preferences?

I have heard SOOO many good reviews on the micros, light output vs cost vs size and they win. If I had the cash and the need them I would have them no doubt.

Thinking of putting them in the same location on my stock valence as they'd be from the factory.

Stk fogs are good, Hellas are good but the most important thing is the location.
Putting the Hellas in the stk location is prime, should work out well once mounted.

Pic along the way...

Update

Well, I got the fogs installed but am really not happy with the light output. I'm considering switching them out for the driving light Micro's not really sure. I'll put the pic up tomorrow once I get one

Pics ?

Fogs are not Long Range Spot Lights, they are designed for low light just in front of the vehicle.

The Driving Light pattern will be longer range out in front, may be what you are looking for BUT the Fog Lights are good fill in lights.

Bad news, I drove around during a rain storm two days ago and the one light is completely fogged on the inside I guess I have a reason to exchange them now.
