 John Deere Rear Facing Work Lights

Does anyone have a set of these type lights mounted and if so how do you like them and would you mind posting some pictures of them? I have the factory front facing work lights but would like to mount the rear facing as well. It would be great to see how they fit and look prior to laying down the cash. I was thinking about adding a switch somewhere in the line so all the lights are not on at once which give a little better control and usage. The front facing lights are great until you turn your head around to back up. Nothing like a face full of light . The master light switch gives you all or nothing as far as control and being able to select different sets of lights for the task at hand would be great. Any other ideas on this are more than welcome. Thanks.

They come in a set? I ordered the rear work light upgrade and got one light facing rearward on the left ROPS. See my pics 2 and 3. It does a great job of lighting up the 3ph area if you want to hook something up when it's dark. The mount is such that you can (using a wrench) tilt it to any angle you want. It mounts using the top bolt that holds the rear signal lights in place.

Thanks Ken, just what I was looking for! Nice install job! How did you patch into the tractor wiring. The front facing lights took the remaining 2 open light wires under the seat. If you don't mind my asking; how much did they cost and the part #? Did you add any switches on the ROPS so you can select different lights or just let them all shine at once?

The part number from my invoice is LV910502 and it was $98 for the light assembly and mounting bracket. Expensive for what you get I think. The dealer installed it so there were no special switches installed - it comes on when the headlights are on. They did give me the installation instructions for it which look quite easy. You just route the worklight wires into a hole in the ROPS and out the base of the ROPS, then use a scotch-lock connector to tap into the black and purple wires in the main harness wire, black to black and purple to purple. The light can be installed on either side of the ROPS, so I'm sure you could buy two light kits and install one on each side. Don't know if that would exceed the switch rating or not but the manual doesn't have a warning not to.

I have both the front and rear work lights. They are wired into the purple and black wire under the seat. I made a Y adapter using some wire and crimp on bullet connectors. This way I could tap in all lights without using a splice on the purple and black wire.

I want to add two switches at some point so I can turn the front and back lights off when I want to.

I have noticed something about the rear lights. I have the 48BH now and while working on the backhoe my shoulders get into the lights and I can also feel the heat off them. I was looking at re-mounting them under the brush guard that is installed for the front work lights. This might get them out of my shoulders way.

I wish there was two factory switches on the dash to wire in the aux lighting.

Craig, I was thinking the same thing too. There are two holes on the bottom of the brush guard that could accept two rear facing work lights just like the front facing pair.

Yes, I saw the two holes at the bottom brush guard and that made me think about moving my rear lights there. There is not much of a gap between the light and the guard for a bolt but I think I could work something out. I'm only thinking about moving my rear lights after using the backhoe and bumping them and also from the heat that comes off.
