back up light

Got my LED back up light hooked up on my new Quad....This light is only 30 watt's,and only draws 2.5 amps, you can see from the picture I have it pointed down,the end of the quad tracks is 90' away.........this is only a 4''x 5'' cube light....very impressed.backing up at night should be no problem.

If I had one of those I wouldn't have to wait until daylight to plow, but then again that would interrupt my coffee hour....or two.

That would be nice, it seems all our snows happen overnight and end in the morning. There wasn't enough by midnight to plow.

That would be handy for plowing! I plow at night and early mornings and could use that! How did you do it? Toggle switch or pressure sensitive switch mounted that contacts the shift mechanism? I want that!!!
Also need turn sigs, 2 rear brake lights and horn. Here we go, just after I thought I was done... more $ into it! Also thinking of one of these sound bars!

I just hooked my back up light and my front light bar to a 20 amp switch,my new Quad had wires by the tail light for a back up light or a back up beeper,but I didn't want to run through the Ecu box.

I looked at those sound bars,looks like they would be nice,I also like the stealth 6 or 10 sound bar, but very costly.........

I wired my back up light using a micro switch mounted on the shifter, also used a relay so I can add lights if needed. Sounds like you are going street legal! I got my turn signal switch off ebay, the horn was from Harbor Freight 9.95 dual horn air! I have less than 150.00 in the items needed for street legal in MI. Horn, Turn Signals, Windshield wipers and washer, big expense was the DOT tires, but using them on hardpack will save my BigHorns, so either way it was a wash! My next expense will be suspension.
