Rear facing fender lights

I’m working on upgrading lights on my 806. I’ve got some par 36 led units going in up front, but I’d like something better than stock on back. Current lights are full metal casing and remind me of Lights for an H. I’m thinking I would like one on each fender, and I would love to be able to easily adjust the position for the job. Does anyone know of a light that would do that? I’m thinking like my trouble light that has a big plastic knob that can be loosened by hand to position it.

Just put some new LED lights on back.  As in whole new assembly.  Tighten the mounts up enough to hold position, but still moveable.  Easy peezy. 

Another guy told me to do that. I’m afraid it will simply vibrate around and never stay where I want it.

Use nylon nuts. I’ve ran a hole saw through rubber belting to make a  firm yet pliable washer that you could sink the mounting bolts into enough to hold them, yet let them pivot too. 

I thought about maybe rubber washers as well. I might give that a try

I have a 27 watt led flood pattern on the back of each fender on my 806. They are pointed outward slightly and light a good wide area, much more than the old single sealed beam did.  Similar to these:

HEres what you are looking for:  https://www.surpluscenter.com/Electrical/Lights/DC-Mobile-Equipment-Lights/12-Volt-DC-1350-Lumens-LED-Utility-Swivel-Flood-Light-Buyers-Products-1492125-12-986-F.axd

Please note I would not bother with the swivel.   Some good LED flood lights will light up the whole area and you won't need to "point" the light.  https://www.surpluscenter.com/Electrical/Lights/DC-Mobile-Equipment-Lights/12-24-Volt-DC-1710-Lumen-LED-Flood-Light-Round-Buyers-Products-1492114-12-991.axd

The above site has a nice selection of LED lights....round/oval/square....pick your shape.   I notice they now have 9000 lumen single lights available---wow, thats a lotta light...I put a couple 3000 lumen lights on a tractor and its blinding.

That’s the kind of thing I was looking for, thank you. But at that price for those lumens I could mount four lights to cover every possible angle for the same price as two, and be substantially brighter in the process! But it’s still good to know.

The "Buyers" lights from Surplus Center are great for general purpose.  I've put them on a bunch of my equipment and haven't had any problem.   They may not be the quality of Tigerlights/ Larson/Cree, but I've been very happy with them for the price.
