Cool - it would be great to see a test like Doc did a few years ago that showed the pattern from the lights as well but I guess that gets expensive.
Personally, I'm a fan of the Rigid lights - well built and good warranty. I have two D2s with the driving pattern, one each on my A-pillars. They give off more then enough light for anything I would need them for.
I also have two D2s with the fog light pattern in my rear bumper that are just great for reminding the nice person behind me that his/her brights are on
Some folks are fine with being screwed over, perhaps finding confrontation to be more stressful than just living with whatever the problem is. These are excellent consumers, manufactured to the finest specifications.
