    sic!

    I just got a 40" bar that I plan to mount up top where you mounted yours ... to go along with my 13" that I have tied into the high beam switch mounted just above the winch

    How did you run and "hide" the wire harness?

    Sorry guys was busy at work and haven't had time to jump on...

    I went with the Rough Country 50" single row. I wanted it to be as unnoticeable as possible and I think I pulled it off! According to the website it's around 19,000 lumens.

    I've noticed voltage issues while the light bar is on, with the ranger running and light bar on my battery light will flash at me. The battery in it now is a Duracell AGM from 2014, I'm guessing it was never maintained properly and now it has actually died on me so time to fine a new battery.

    I have room for 2 batteries and was thinking of just getting 2 acid batteries vs. AGM to save some money. I think 2 acids will have plenty of power correct me if I'm wrong.

    What brand should I be looking at? Should I just head to the Polaris dealer and get theirs or should I look aftermarket?

    Yeah, sounds like your battery is going south. Polaris used Yuasa batteries -- can probably get them from Amazon or Ebay cheaper than from a Po dealer. Any manufacture will work, just match the size and amp hour rating. If you plan on keeping the buggy for awhile, would be cheaper in the long run to just spring for a Odyssey PC925L (or two!) now.


    My friend says to me, “What rhymes with orange?” I said, “No it doesn’t.”

    So I would be ok running 2 Yuasa batts? Anything special I need to know about running 2 batts or just run a positive and negative cable from the first batt to the second and I'm good?

    You can run any two batteries you'd like but make sure they are the same age and size and type. I've seen guys run a new battery with an old one and usually it will shorten the life of the new one.

    I tried to pm the op but no luck. I am wondering how far away the treeline is in this photo. Can't tell if it is 50 yards or over 100. The light and pattern looks good but if the treeline is only 50 yards away, it may not be as good as it looks. Treshreve, I know u have the same light, perhaps you have an idea of range.
