I looked on jdparts but could not find a part number for the optional rear utility light. Anyone know the part number for the light bulb and light housing? Are the bulbs a standard part I can get at Tractor Supply?

On a side note, pending the price for the light housing, I wonder if I can repair the melted hole with JB Weld, any thoughts?

Apparently I bumped the light and it twisted the bulb and stated to melt the housing

Thanks D1C857B1-E531-4056-91B0-13B0DB976110.jpeg D1C857B1-E531-4056-91B0-13B0DB976110.jpeg 5FA7FB4A-CE0A-4CDF-9441-DD2ACC000D0B.jpeg

I can look it up when I get back to my computer but without even looking I can safely say you can get yourself a good quality BRIGHTER LED work light for 15% of what JD will want for a replacement halogen housing and bulb.

Here is the parts breakdown. You can get an entire new rear light kit (#1) for $66 (LVB25547). You can get 7% off that from GFP.

As replacement parts you can get the bulb and housing (#2) for $69.42. The bulb alone is $13.74.

I was probably over optimistic about the 15% comparison but I'll bet for $25 you can get a complete LED replacement that is brighter.

Thanks. I will look into the LED idea and thanks for the part numbers
They even make LED lights which have magnet bases for positioning where the current light is on the ROPS or you could move it as you need to. I wouldn't even bother with the "old" light parts as the light output difference is simply amazing with the LED's.

Here is a comparison of my front work lights off my tractor with the factory halogen lights and then I replaced the fixtures with LED and took a picture to show the visibility difference.....dramatically different and so much easier to see.....

The one photo shows the light output side by side with the factory halogen light on the left side and the replacement LED on the right, as looking at the picture, it's amazing how "dirty" the halogen light output looks compared to the LED light results.

Wow, that is some difference. I had two additional John Deere work lights on the brush guards and one facing the rear when I purchased my rig. Are there LED bulbs the 1025 guy can get that you simply swap out. That brightness would be nice for a night time operation tO get ahead of the snow or a real early pre breakfast start in the dark AM.

Yes, there are replacement LED bulbs but the results can be disappointing as the housings have reflectors that are designed for halogen bulbs. I went through the bulb swap initially with my work lights and while the light from the LED bulb LOOKED brighter to my eye, the light that actually made it to the ground was less than with halogen bulbs.

I found some 3" LED lights at Rural King, which the brand of the lights are Back Roads LED Lights in a 2 pack set for $35. Very bright.

Back Roads 3 inch 2 Pack 4 LED Lights

These lights bolt up to the John Deere Fender Light mounts with just a little adjustment with a Dremel tool on the base. These are the lights shown in the photo above, which is showing the dramatic light improvement.

I have used these lights extensively without any issues. You will have to change the electrical connection on the light to plug into the Deere factory harness, but you can buy the electrical connections and change them on the new lights. I didn't want to cut the tractors harness, so I changed the plug on the new lights to work..................with the OEM harness.......

Plus they fit into the area on the front of the cab where the fender lights are re-positioned when the CAB is installed. I actually prefer the look of the square LED's on the front of the cab roof.............

I am considering adding two LED lights right to the front grille guard or to the upper round bar on the front quick hitch so I can aim the lights off to the sides about 20 degrees, left and right and also aim them so they shine down in front of the blade more than the headlights do.......LED lights draw so few AMPS that adding more lights doesn't put a strain on the electrical system the way adding Halogen lights does.

I also have a pair of the small square LED lights on the rear of the cab roof, aiming straight out for visibility. I do make it a point to turn them off when there is a vehicle behind me because they are so bright, its hard for the driver to see. I have them switched separately so its easy to turn the different lights on and off as needed. Note how bright the rear lights are in the photo showing the tractor sitting sideways, compared to the front halogen bulbs in use at the time the photo was taken............

The side lights on the cab roof were also added and they flash in alternating sequences to make the tractor much more visible from the side when working near the road. I took the two pictures and the lights on the side of the cab roof are in different flashing sequences in the photos........the final photo shows the two roof mounted side lights.

The side of the Mauser cab roof is not flat and has a gradual curve to the entire side, so make sure any lights you add are short enough to mount flush against the roof or they will look goofy and also possibly provide a leak source to the inside of the roof area.
