    Forward lighting kit for the 1023e

    Just picked up a forward lighting kit for my 1023.. The install looks pretty straight forward.. Famous last words though eh?!.. If anyone else has installed one on their 1 series, are there any do's and dont's that you discovered?..

    DO follow the directions

    DON'T take any shortcuts

    DO order a set of Artillian horse blinders.
    DO enjoy your new well lit environment.

    Yep, "Horse Blinders", the best money you can spend if you plan on lighting those new lights "at night". One head turn with the work lights on ("YIKES!") was all it took for me!

    In my experience, they do just fine on an open trailer at highway speeds. No problems!!!

    I don't know from trailering, but the blinders AIN'T CHEESY material! Hey, I've tried my best to knock the left one off plenty of times with my elbow twirling the seat into the BH position. They flex and don't crease. Stay under 120mph with that rig and you should be fine.

    And if that weren't enough, I noticed this in the Horse Blinder section of the Artillian site:

    New! ENHANCED BLINDER SHAPE and THICKER MATERIAL!

    So they are now even more durable.

    Having a problem guys.. Wonder if you can help.. The wires coming off the lights themselves are one purple male end and one black female end.. The instructions say to simply plug purple into purple and black into black.. But there is no purple wire on the tractor harness.. Also..The kit came with two separate harnesses in addition to the simple harness that connects directly to the lights.. Both have two purple male connectors and two black female connectors at one end and one purple male connector and one black female connector at the other end.. Are these harnesses supposed to be involved at all or are they for a rear light if you added one down the rd.. Anyway.. I know its tough to help with nothing more to go one than a description like mine.. But if you've added these lights before.. Can you post the exact steps?.. What wire goes where?.. I called the dealer and he was no help.. It was 10 mins till closing so he wasn't really interested.. I'll go see the dealer to figure it out next week if not.. Just figured I'd ask so I can maybe finish with this thing tomorrow.. Thanks for any help!..

    What color wires do you have available at the rear of the tractor? If I recall, the only harness connections back there are for the work lights. So if you have no purple, what colors are in the tractor pigtail? If you have black and something that is probably the correct wires. You could always verify with a volt meter.

    Yes, the extra "Y" harness that you get with the kit is for the rear work light.
