    1023E stupid ROPS Warning Light design, anybody modify?

    1023E stupid ROPS Warning Light design, anybody modify? I hit the LH light over a year ago and replaced it. Tonight I hit the RH light. It is really a stupid design when people have birch trees that like to lean rather than stand straight up.

    I am looking for suggestions on how to replace them with a better design or move them inside the ROPS bar along with the lights.

    Any suggestions welcome. I am tired of paying $40 a pop for them.

    Thanks

    Several members have put them on the inside of the ROPS.

    ^^^^ X2

    JD also sells a set of steel guards that surrounds the outside of the lights and offers a bit of protection.

    You can easily move them to the inside, but if you have a backhoe that's not the best idea. Instead get the light guards, they work well.

    Only $40 for a light? Not bad. The ones for my 1025 are closer to $135, last I checked.

    The 1023e can have two different tail lights depending on serial number. The earlier light is a single light and costs around $40 for the whole assembly. The newer version is a double light, one above the other and that assembly costs around $80.

    The 1025R's all use the double light, same part number as the 1023e. ~$80 for the entire assembly.

    I stand corrected, you are right. I swear they were about $135 last year. My bad.

    The $135 probably included the dealer tip. :-)

    I put the steel guards on mine. Really hold up well with brush and allow for aux lighting mounting options

    I need to stay married, so after the bride damaged all four the first summer, I just removed them. Thankfully, the damage was not to the point they couldn't be repaired by replacing cracked lens or gluing the nut insert back into the housing with structural adhesive.

    We don't work after dark or operate on public roadways in the summer months, so it is not an issue then. The same lamp assemblies are remounted on the Cozy Cab pillars, so we just leave them on the cabs, as we do operate at night and on public roadways when performing snow removal.

    The instrument cluster will display a lamp error message if you disconnect them and have a lamp function active.
