Question Fog light change

I'd like to change the fog lights on my 04' f250 and was thinking of a LED
light bar ( 20 " ) . What beam pattern is preferable - flood and spot combo
or pure flood . Any suggestions ?

I replaced the factory fogs with Rigid Dually D2s in driving pattern. They are awesome lights but they are too bright for on road use where you will get any oncoming traffic. I ended-up adding the Rigid smoked covers which makes them borderline acceptable for on road use. They, when I'm out in the boonies I can pull the covers and light up the entire roadway!

stocker fog lights should be around 55W....they're just normal halogen bulbs. As far as replacing it with an LED bar, most of the LEDS use about 3-4 watts so it just depends on how big of a bar you want. a 10"bar with 20 LEDs would be about 60W, a 20" bar with 40 LEDs would be about 120W.

As far as which it just depends on how much light you want.

edit^^^can't get the links to work

No, a good quality LED will put out much more light per watt consumed than a standard incandescent bulb.
