JDLeds.com in conjunction with Lux Design LLC has designed a new direct replacement bulb for your late model John Deere garden tractor. These lights are designed to be 100% plug and play and are a direct replacement for your stock worn out bulbs. Designed to use its own integrated reflector, the light output is maximized by eliminating the outdated and often dirty stock reflector.

Don’t be fooled by other brand LED’s that are a simple bulb replacement, the JDLeds are a full replacement system which include high quality heatsink and a full wiring harness replacement. Other brands wont share their lumen output so you don’t know how bright they are, and also other brand replacement bulbs aren’t designed to work in the stock reflector!

Built 100% in the USA, these have been engineered to not only be brighter but also draw less power than the stock system. The light output of these is an eye pleasing natural 4500k color unlike the cold temperature of other LED bulbs. The natural 4500k white color reduces glare in rainy or misty conditions while appearing brightest to the eye. Here are the specs of the JDLEDs light system:
• 100% plug and play with no modifications
• Produces just under 2000 lumen of light, twice as bright as the stock bulbs.
• Consumes less than 1/3 the total power compared to the stock bulbs
• Rated for 50,000 hours of usage
• Fully CNC’d heatsink to allow for high driving currents
• Integrated optics for a far throw as well as a wide spread
• Most Efficient LED’s on the market for maximum output

Ordering – jdleds.com
Pricing – $130.00 1 Set
Warranty – 1 Year



D-Dogg "But, these are absolutely nothing like anything you can imagine a person making in his garage. EVERY little detail of these is 100% professional."

John Snykus "WOW, Wow wow. Well worth the money. Much much better than the stock 1156. I can actually see where I am going."

Mike glad to see you got these up finally. I have to admit that these make such a huge difference and that they are really worth the time and effort it takes to get them installed!

If anyone in the vacinity of southern Md gets or has these I would be interested in seeing them in real life . I could possibly be interested in stocking them if they work as claimed .

Actually its $43/bulb. (3 lights)
Good catch. Yes these are essentially $43 a bulb, but its not your standard. bulb. These LED's have a rating of around 50,000 hours and the entire setup is over 2x as bright as the stock bulbs. The stock bulbs use a reflector that is often worn or dirty, so up to half the light output is being lost. The JDLED's use their own reflector so these could be up to 4 or more times as bright as the stock bulb. As well they do come with a 1-year warranty just in case something does happen within that time frame

:howdy:I'm confused.
Isn't the pic from above, the one from your web site, actually the one from your 9 LED prototype seen in the following thread? :dunno:

Yes that picture is from the 9 LED setup, however we compared the output from the 9 LED one and the current 3 LED setup and they were identical to the eyes. We found that it is easier to produce the 3 LED one and they gave the same exact light output so that is why we switched to this style instead. The picture is not deceiving at all of course because the light output and color is the same for both versions.

Are the 300 and 400 series using an 1156 bulb? I wonder if these would work on the older 200 series..........I have a 212.

The yellow and black wires are crimped into metal bands. There is roughly a 1/2" of wire stripped. The band they connect to are part of the bulb housing.

Where the three bulbs are connected to the incoming power, mine are joined in a large butt connector, with heat shrink tubing. There is no actual connector, or terminals used. :dunno:

I'm not doubting you I'm just curious why you don't show pictures of the production product's performance from the same position in the garage (or somewhere). :dunno:

I think complete and accurate information will do nothing but help you and your light sales. It is only another picture and that is cheap.

Good luck with the new enterprise!

Nothing yet for the X500 models. They use a different style setup. We might be looking into making those as well, but we want to start off slow

In all honestly - I have the good DSLR Camera and i haven't been able to get over there to take the new pictures. I do agree with you and we will have updated pictures soon. Thanks for the recommendations

Here is pics of a stock 200 series bulb set up from an Ebay auction:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/JOHN-DEERE-210-212-214-HEADLIGHTS-/320781114034?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4ab00b5ab2

The spade/ring connector would have to be used, and a matching connector added to the incoming power and ground wires, I believe.
I was going to try to get up with Littledeere and Gburnett this weekend to physically test the fit of the heat sink in a variety of models. Weather will dictate whether we get it done.
