Dually or D2, instead of fog lights, which one?

I am thinking of changing my stock fog lights for something more powerful. I am looking for more light. I don't get much of a fog, as a matter of fact none where I live now, so I am looking for more light on the trail.
I do however have a 20" Rigid E bar on the bumper already. So the question is would a D2 make that much of a difference comparing to the Dually? I understand that one is almost twice lumens as the other, but will I see it with my already existing E bar?
Also, do these lights come with the harness and all to wire back to the cabin?

I just installed the D2's to replace my fog lights. They came with all the wiring, fuse, and switch to install them. I chose to power them from my battery with the included harness and splice them into my switch, I do not have any of the LED flicker and they work just like my fog lights did. I can't speak as to how much difference there is between the Dually's and the D2's, but I am from the camp that says you can never have enough light.

I did have to purchase the mounts to mount them into the bumper, they didn't come with those.

You route it to the fog harness?

I ran the power and ground separate, then I spliced into the existing fog light harness just for the factory switch. You can run everything through the factory harness to include power, but I know that people do get the LED flicker, it has to do with the power...I am not exactly sure, but the D2's draw less than the factory fog lights do.

Look for my thread on inspired engineering It's plug and play with no flicker. Cheaper too! well, all LEDs are cheaper than rigids. Lol.

I put in D2 Drivings but they are too bright. I can't run them against oncoming traffic, so they really aren't driving lights. I'm going to re-wire them into my highbeams.
