This is my second time trying to post. I was ready to hit the button to post and lost my electricity again so now I am on my phone. I have a bx2360 and I want to put a toolbox on it. Has anyone added one to theirs? Where does the dealer installed light go and is the wiring on the tractor?

It is not a BX2360 but maybe you can use a variation of the idea. I sandwiched the ROPS between two pieces of angle to make a shelf for my saw box. Most lights I have seen are mounted on a bracket attached to the ROPS cross bar. I like the ones that use 2" square U-bolts. Look under the rear fenders for wiring. Might be there. Thats where mine is.
If you search toolbox or lights you will get lots of clever ideas and info.

This is what I did on my BX25. The basket cost me a $1 from the Dollar Store. I simply drilled some holes in the bottom for drainage, added a piece of composite deck to level it; then zip-tied it to the pin on the loader.

As far as the factory rear light,I purchased one a few years ago when I had my BX25.I was very disappointed with it and eventually threw it in the garbage as I bought it from the dealer with the understanding that I could not return it.The light output was very poor,I tried changing the ground but it made no difference.As for the kit,it wasn't much and seemed low quality,not what I expected from Kubota.As for the plug in,it is taped up inside the wiring harness at the left rear of the tractor.If you search on here you should find a photo of it.If I was to put a light on my BX2360,I would go with LED.They have a low power draw but put out a lot of light.I put three on my 3240 and am very pleased with them.

Unfortunately The toplink and lift arms come up into that area. I saw an older bx that had a box there but there is not enough room to do that on this one.

This is what I did on my BX25. The basket cost me a $1 from the Dollar Store. I simply drilled some holes in the bottom for drainage, added a piece of composite deck to level it; then zip-tied it to the pin on the loader.

That gave me an idea. i may be able to mount a small box where the loader mount bolts onto the tractor.

I did not want to spend 60 or 70 bucks on a light from kubota. The light on the bobcat I had was $17. I'll try looking for the wiring. I may go with led but they are harder to find at a reasonable price with a switch built in. I had 2 led's clamped on the rollbar of my bobcat I may put the on the bx for some extra forward lighting. I check the leds on a trailer clearance light and you can run 10 of the power of what 1 incandescent takes.
