So I got my $50 rewards card from Pep Boy's today and figured I'd pick up some lights for the middle of my front bumper on my truck. I want the small style, square pod design and these 2 brands seem like the only decent ones they have in stock...

Does anyone have any experience or any reviews on either LED Pod or even any kind of feedback on either brand?

Perhaps one brand is better than the other? Please reply or vote below... thanks!

P.S. I'm kind of leaning towards the Pilot Automotive Pods because I have 4 8" COB LED Bars made by Pilot Automotive in my bed to light it up at night and they are super bright and felt like they were good quality. I'm just posting here to get some feedback on the KC HiLiTES if anyone has them.

Just looking at the specifications the Pilots will be brighter and have a narrower beam so you'll get farther down range action as well. They're almost 2x as bright as the KC's.
That's what I thought, but wanted to see if anyone had any experience with either of these sets and had anything good or bad to say about them...
