    Install new LED lights. Check it out.

    I generally plow snow in my driveway at night. I had these same lights on my old 2305, and wanted the same lighting on my 1025r. Here is where I got them: Amazon.com: OC Gizmo LED Work Light Lamp Off Road High Power ATV Jeep 4x4 Tractor 27W Round 30 Degree Round Spot Light: Automotive

    I spent $30 on the lights, and about $10 more for some wire and bullet connectors. Having the leads already in place on the 1025r made the job a lot easier. Thanks John Deere! I wanted them to be high enough to shine over the top of my plow, but low enough to clear tree limbs, etc. when mowing. I mounted them under the flashers/turn signals by drilling a hole in the metal bracket and using the mounts included with the lights.



    Here's a pic in the back yard with just the headlights:



    Now with the LED's turned on:

    My neighbors may not like them, but I sure do! Ha!

    Very nice SPDSniper! Neat and clean install...excellent illumination.

    Couple questions...with the additional wattage draw, did you have to make any modifications to the light circuit? Second, do the backs of your ears get sunburn???

    Thanks! The LED's have a much lower voltage draw than regular lights, so that isn't an issue. No burns either!

    I like the why you installed the lights. Do you know if the lights you got come in a brighter LED like 47w.
    I'm looking for small round LED light that are bright work lights. IF I can't find them your setup looks good.

    I believe that the 1X Vs 2X just means one 27W light or 2 27W lights.

    I can't say for sure as I go more by the Lumen output rather than the wattage. I can tell you these puppies are awfully bright!

    Here are the ones I put on the top of my cab ,they are 18W. Haven't gotten a chance or need to be outside after dark. I will say they are bright ,At the present time I have them pointed about 3-5' in front of the tractor and it lights the back of our house about 40' away. They come in fog, spot and off road and a very heavy made housing .

    Ok. They do look good. I think I will buy them. The price is right.

    How do you like your seat cover. I was thinking of getting one because in the winter the seat get very cold. Do you think it help a little?
