It feels good to get a project like that finished up. I purchased the same lights and did nothing with them for over a year. I recently got mine rigged up on the ROPS. Now I want to install a rear view mirror under my canopy.

Had to make the bracket for the rear lights and make the box for the switches,I ordered the switch panel with the three switches,the volt meter and a dual usb outlet,panel didn’t end up working,got a 4x4x4 pvc box at lowes and cut it out for the switches,really had no use for the usb,the push button switch will be for my sprayer

Finished all the wiring today,know I should have drilled into the ROPS,but I can’t see a few 1/4 inch holes really hurting it,makes a much cleaner install.

I like your rear light bar set up,I got a replacement 17 inch bar for the first one I put on the front that didn’t work, thinking about mounting it on the back to replace the two small lights

Reviving this as my set up has changed since this original post (and seems like parts of this thread was lost in the site crossover).

Had to do away with the rear lights after I added the backhoe because the fender support they are mounted to is removed to clear the back hoe seat. Not sure yet if I will keep the 2 small lights for the rear or swap out for the light bar I got laying around.

I also needed to finish the wiring for my sprayer. The project box I have for the switches, fuses, and relays had no more room left to add the sprayer circuit. So time to re think all this.

Got an auxiliary fuse/relay panel to help with this. Had planned on putting it under the dash panel but there wasn’t enough room.

Ended up mounting it to the back of the fender (don’t mind the wiring mess yet)

It comes as a bare box with bags of teminal ends.

Getting the box wired up if very tedious.

Will hopefully finish it up tomorrow.

(Dont mind the dirty tractor 😂 Couldnt get it washed before I started

Who makes that relay/fuse box? That looks like a slick way to add high load circuits.

Here’s a link to the one I got. It is a bare box, it comes with the terminal ends that go in the box but you have to supply the wiring.
