Nope, I have Bosch Pilot150 Fog AND Bosch Pilot150 Driving lights on mine.
Because I have blackouts on my normal lights, I use the Pilot150 Fog lights for my normal night driving, and I have the Pilot150 Driving lights for my highbeams... they are really bright and go really far.

You can see both sets in my sig....

fog lights project a short and wide beam. driving lights project a narrow long beam. from what i remember driving lights are to be used with high beams only. but that doesn't stop me with my blazers!

Yeah if you get the right fog lights, such as ones designed for off road use only, they will light up a freakin city block. If not, I would get driving lights. Fog lights mostly work because they are so close to the ground and eliminate under the fog.
