    I sell quite a few LED lights at my day job. Just buying the bulbs to install into your existing halogen housings will never work as well as the projector or reflector style LED lights.

    Another thing to remember is.
    A halogen light produces most of it's heat in the front of the light. This will help melt any snow or ice off of the light while plowing or using a snow blower.
    An LED produces most of it's heat at the rear of the light. This can help melt the plastic housing that holds the bulb. So be careful.

    I upgraded the headlights on my 2014 X540 from the stock 1156 style incandescent bulbs to the JD halogen bulb upgrade kit. Wow what a difference. Was definitely worth the $60.
    When I bought the kit home it also came with 2 metal heat shields. The instructions stated to glue them to the reflectors over the top of the light bulbs. However it didn't specify if I needed to use them on my X540. My dealer had to contact JD for an answer to my question. As it turns out I didn't need to use them. I just wanted to be sure that I would not melt the plastic reflectors. So far so good.

    I upgraded my lights on my 1025r to LED. I left the original lights in the front and work positions and installed this 120w LED bar on the ROPS...

    $48 on Amazon and it lights up the front real nice.

    Also solves the problem of the headlights being blocked by the FEL.

    Wow!! Thank you very much for taking the time to explain these things to me as I'm not very knowledgeable on this stuff. I really appreciate the input!!

    I recently added LED lighting to my 2305. Although I would have preferred to have the lights mounted at or above the height of the ROPS, I opted to mount the lights below to reduce the risk of tree limbs breaking the lights. Here is the thread I posted.
