just kidding, JD could never offer something so awesome.lol

Had a buddy helping with some firewood, a chunk rolled over top edge of bucket and right into one of my headlight lens. Priced a new light from dealer at $80....so i bought these lights on ebay for half that price, made a braket up and viola.

i think they turned out great, you?

Funny you should say that.....JD does offer an "all LED" option on the new 5R. It costs roughly 1.3 million dollars......

I bet those suckers are really bright, I've witnessed firsthand the brightness of LED light bars half the size of those and they are super bright. I wonder if they could be modded to sit behind the lens for those of us with both lenses.

They are. The 54" on my gator is like sunlight.....

They do pull a lot of amperage (well, it's all relative) so you do have to consider wire sizing and relays.....

I thought LEDs pulled less amperage? Guess it depends on how many????

When compared lumens to lumens a LED will typically draw significantly less power than a filament style lamp. But in cases where folks are replacing a pair of work lights with a huge 53" LED light bar, chances are the LED light bar is drawing more current - but providing 5X the light.

They sure do, but these light bars are insanely bright. My 54" bar pulls 25A (300W)......
