So I had a thought about the pathetic lights that are on my Gtx. Come winter and the snowy nights. So I bought some led bulbs that have 120 led's each!!!
Here is the before.

"I know corny thread.... But I don't care lol"


Not corny whatsoever, my friend! I suffer from an eye disease that over the years has reduced my night vision drastically and "mo' lighting, mo' lighting" is always on my mind. One of the first upgrades I did to my '04 GX was to install the halogen lighting kit. I felt 100% more comfortable plowing snow at night. (AND the occasional night trip down to bring back the trash containers from the curb.) I always read with interest all posts regarding adding more and better lighting to everything. I even upgraded all my Mag Lites to super bright LEDs as I use them everyday many times.

It might help others to post the brand and part # for those bulbs and the number of the regular bulbs that they replace.

When it's dark outside and you have to be there, more light is always welcome.

Thanks guys! These replace any 1156 style bulb. Here is a link from where I bought them on fleabay.

These are the pure white led's they do make a difference!
P.S. I tried them at 4:30 this am and wow they lit up my whole shop!

Might have to look into some of these, though there isn't much I do after dark around here but sleep!

Soon enough I'll be leaving for work in the dark and getting home in the dark (not that there is much GT work to be done around here in those months) and my little kubota's lights are sad... These LED replacements would be nice!

I did something like that to the old GT225. Put on a back-up and extra front light. They sure come in handy for night time chores.
