Ok fair enough, I thought you meant everyone, my mistake. You are right about the ones who will use them in traffic, and lord have mercy if someone uses them in actual fog.

I dont have them yet, but if aimed appropriately and with yellow filters could be useful. But I'm not one of those to use it any time, i have the 4 on top for blinding ppl if wanted lol... jk

You can't aim something properly that doesn't have a light cutoff. I believe many of these companies claiming to be "FOG" lights simply fit the fog light holes in a JK and don't have a decent lens or reflector to keep the light low and wide - which is what you want in a fog light so it doesn't come back at you.

When the jeep is at stock height the D2 driving beam can be mounted where the light does not project any higher than regular fogs.

My friend has the above setup and they didn't bother me driving by head on.

I ran rigids at stock height. Still can't use them. I do use mine on the street with a yellow filter though. Roughly 2800k color. The yellow removes enough intensity that people (and cops) arnt bothered by them, even on long stretches of open dark road

I imagine quite a few people do.

I'm also not saying you could not aim them properly on a lifted jeep I just haven't seen it personally.

could always toss a variable resister in the circuit and control how intense they really are...

Would be difficult as the high end LEDs are all CPU controlled

Do you have a link to this bracket?
If it's the Nemesis bracket, I've spoken directly to them and was told without any question it wouldn't work.
If these brackets are different, I'm very interested!

Those are the Nemesis brackets...for damn near three times as much, and they will not work with the stock bumper.
