I'd like to put the JD auxilary lights on my machine, so I called a local dealer with part #'s and below are the prices they kicked back to me. I just about fell out of my chair when they told me the price of the brush guard kit. Those of you that have taken the plunge and added these mods to your machine - did they really cost you this much? I didn't bother having them order for me because I thought these prices seemed rather high.

LVB25546
Forward Lighting Kit (2 Lights)
Requires Light Brush Guard Kit, LVB25016 (below)
$87.00

LVB25547
Rear Work Light (1 Light)
Includes Wiring Harness.
$57.00

LVB25016
Warning Light Brush Guard Kit (Two Guards)
$103.00

8 years ago I added the rear light kit to my 2210, seemed like a lot to me too. But it was a complete kit with connectors, switch, brackets, etc and the reassurance that you're not going to damage your tractor or wiring with a short or overload.

Later that same year I wanted to add two forward-facing lights to my ROPS and went the cheap route, just bought two generic flood lamps and tied them into the rear light switch. They probably draw more power than the circuit should handle but they have worked fine for 8 years now.

So kinda of a 'you get what you pay for' situation. I would say, if you understand electricity basics and have a way to fabricate a bracket or two, you can 'build your own' for a lot less......

tully,

I went through a similar experience last year. I ended up going with exactly the setup you are speaking of. With that said, a few comments:

* The lights JD uses for both the forward and rear kits are JW Speaker model 7100. As Fred mentioned, if you have a basic understanding of wiring, you could go that route rather than through the dealer.

* 2nd, I would double check the price of the light guards with another dealer or have your dealer recheck the pricing you were quoted. I went back to my paperwork and checked, we paid $49 for the pair. I am hoping your dealer may not have realized they come as a pair.

* If you go with the light guards, be sure you check out the glare shrouds at Artillian (a fellow member here).

I hope this helps.

There are quite a few other options if you want to put a setup together yourself, there is also quite a few threads if your search some.

Glad you came aboard Fred:good2:

I bought the kit a couple of weeks ago. The brush guard price that you are being quoted is double what I paid from my dealer. Make sure that he understands that the list price is for 2 guards. Also, make sure that at least one splitter is included.

Having said this, the kit sure was easy to install with all of the right connectors already in place. BTW, the Artillian glare shrouds are a must, IMHO.
