When seeing is more important that believing, add lights to your ride
Driving your UTV is a lot of fun, even if it’s for work. Even farmers will tell you that it can be a good time rolling through a pasture after some cows. And eventually you’re going to go for a drive after dark, either for fun or out of necessity. Going out after the sun goes down presents some new challenges, the biggest of which is you need good UTV lighting to be able to see.
Stock UTV lighting is pretty decent but, as with anything, it can be improved upon. Adding additional lighting is pretty common and thanks to advancements in technology, the price is getting much more affordable. An extremely popular route is LED lighting, and there are a plethora of options to suit every budget and style. When LED light bars first hit the scene, the prices were high, and soon cheaper started to materialize. However, with those lower priced options, there was a durability issue. That isn’t nearly as common these days. Now there are light systems to fit every budget and need.
Maybe you need more light that your stock headlights offer for you specific use, such as hunters looking to help load things up after a long day in the field. Or perhaps you’re all about going fast. They say the average UTV will outrun the headlights after 45mph. If you have a heavy right foot, then adding quality UTV lighting should be in your plans.
