I have looked everywhere for a set of LED headlights for my SS16. I would think that by now someone would be making ones to fit these tractors. Any ideas out there. Thanks, Mike

Google " Led lights for garden tractors " I was going to give you a link but there are dozens on there.  I'm not so sure you would be happy with led's as your main light source. You can be seen better but not a better source of light. There was a post on here where the guy replaced his light bulbs with the bulbs in exit signs from Lowe's. He had a choice of 30w & 50w he went with the 30w.

I think it's still a bit of a sellers market on LED bulbs for low volume applications like GT's. I've used them in my tail lights and on the JD 300's they make a replacement Led bulb for the headlights. It's not a sealed beam but a bulb. They are pricey and don't seem as bright as the old incandescent bulbs. They use much less power though.

Can't help you on the LEDS, I bought some off road fog lights, I think they are, from harbor Freight, they were like $12 for the pair. The come in a thick plastic casing which I took off, mounted perfect in the nose of my 77 Suburban. They are 55W and I think draw about 3-4 amps a piece, but while running, they don't seem to bother the amp guage much. I did notice they dimmed when I used my winch, but that booger draws 15-20 amps when it engages.
