    How about some info on mounting, wiring up and switch.
    Looks great think that's the way I would like to go also.

    simple, wire to +DC and then a few inches of wire, then an inline blade fuse, and then ran the wire back next to my seat for a 30amp toggle switch, and then up to the light bar to the + of the light bar, I also chose to run the - side all the way back to the battery.... one of these setups for forward light, one for reverse. I kept it simple and didn't use relays or go through the factory tractor wiring. I figured this would be best if I had any warranty concerns.

    as for mounting I sized the light bar appropriately to use its existing mounting feet sheet metal screwed into the ROPS bar.

    So, I found a pair of Cree LED lights with 60 degree flood patterns from LED Village on Amazon for $33.40 with free shipping (from China of course) so I ordered those and installed them aiming forwards. They do a great job at lighting up near the front of the tractor and at the sizes of the plow. One had the mounting bolt hole drilled at an angle which would have looked really bad if I was mounting them straight ahead, but since they are pointed out at an angle you can稚 tell. The biggest advantage is that I am now able to aim the Totron 12 light bar farther up like it should be, and the reach on that light is now simply amazing. See the below pictures for the same distance from the shop (185? as before and notice the difference from how it was originally aimed. The longest straight section on our lane to the road is about 500 and this light will reach that far without any problems. The quality on the little lights from from LED Village definitely isn稚 as good as the Totron light bars from Matt or the little 120 degree flood from superbrightleds that I mounted on the back of the tractor. Time will tell how well they hold up through rain and snow.

    Looking good!

    I see you've swapped out the bucket for the plow already!
