    The small drivig lights on the front of the machine. I know i could go to jd direct through a dealer but i was hoping not to have to pay full price. I got the idea from my welder who used them for flood lights in his custom light bar. Ill try and snap a picture sometime.

    Try some equipment salvage yards. They might of got a machine that was burned or badly damaged that still has good lights you could buy.

    Try TSC Stores....... Tractor Supply Stores if there is one near you.
    They will have a selection of lamps for wheel farm tractors.
    Also a large truck stop- Drivers are mounting on side of the wind fairing
    to light the trailer nose to hit the kingpin.
    Or the next tire repair truck you see, stop him and ask where he got his.
    One of these should guide you to something ou can use. AND WILL BE CHEAPER THAN ANY OEM
    Just saying....
