HID and LED Light Upgrades for Polaris RZR

In the interests of safety and usability, it is important to select the right lighting for your UTV. If you make the wrong choice and end up with lights that are too dim or do not provide the correct field of view, you are not only wasting your money, but putting yourself and others at risk when riding in the dark. In no particular order, this guide takes a look at some of the best HID and LED light kits for your Polaris RZR.

Polaris RZR HID Light Options

The major upside of halogen lights for the RZR is that they can be replaced whenever you need to, with complete ease. Contrast this with LED light bars, which are much harder (and more expensive) to replace and install. Halogen lights do not offer quite the same level of performance as LEDs. Use the information provided below to compare for yourself.

Lapaz 100w Driving Lights

The quality of these lights cannot be contested, and they make a great addition to any UTV. Halogen light kits are harder to come by, but these bulbs are versatile and can fit into most standard light racks – you can often switch your stock bulbs for these ones with no trouble whatsoever. Lapaz offer these lights with a lifetime warranty, which is a testament to their competition-beating quality and longevity. These lights provide a 20 degree field of view, and are designed and optimized for long range visibility, lighting up the scene clearly for those night time drives. Top racing teams rely on this brand, and as an upgrade for your Polaris RZR UTV you will not regret the purchase.

Pros Tough, high-impact nylon housing. Lifetime warranty.
Cons Glass lens is prone to breaking, comparatively expensive, and if your existing rack is not compatible, a new rack is required.

Piaa 540 Xtreme White Lamp Kit

If you are versed with UTV brands for parts and accessories, you will know that Piaa is a staple of quality. A versatile lighting choice, this kit is the perfect size as a RZR light kit, and would make an ideal upgrade from the stock lighting provided as standard. In general, light kits make a good choice because you only need to make a single purchase for a full light assembly for your RZR RTV, as opposed to purchasing each light and component separately. This lighting option gives you all the lumens you need to keep the trail well-lit, a total power of 110W, and a wide field of view so you have complete control over your surroundings. The lights are simple to install and with reversible lenses there are number of mounting options. We have included this halogen option for its dependability, performance and reasonable price.

The combination of these bulbs gives great range and function, with a standard bulb and another with a wider field of view for an optimal balance. Whether you are taking a quick ride or adventuring on a tricky trail on a moonless night, driving with these lights on your RZR will give you a real sense of liberation. If you are going to replace your stock lighting setup, the first thing you will notice is the performance, which is always important for keeping a clear view at night. They are a great option for an upgrade, and although they draw more amps than LED alternatives, you know that these extra amps are being put to good use.

Polaris RZR LED Light Options

LED light kits are a popular choice as Polaris RZR replacement lights for the same reasons that people choose LEDs for many other demanding applications – because they are highly efficient, can deliver higher lumen output with a lower power draw, are durable and robust and last a very long time. This means if you go with a higher-end option, you can achieve some of the highest light output around, and still go on longer ventures without worrying about running out of battery. While they last longer than other lighting options, when they do finally go, they are harder to replace than halogen kits, so bear this in mind.

EZTSK Off-Road Light Kit

For the price, this complete LED kit comes with some of the brightest lights you can get, which for the efficiency makes it difficult to beat. As a full kit (complete with lights, wiring and connectors, mounting equipment, fuse and fuse holder and rocker switch) with many different options for customization and placement, it offers true performance and quality. There are two lights, and each light has 6 LEDs, (arranged 3 on 3) which offers a dazzlingly bright beam both in-front and on the sides of the UTV. The trail truly lights up, and with highly efficiency and long-lasting LED lights operating at a low 3A, you can safely get where you need to and take longer trips with a long battery life.

Cons There are brighter LED options available on the market. You need to install two separate lights.

Surge 12: High Intensity Light Bar

This is a high-end lighting option which will look great with your RZR and keep the trails well lit for a very long time to come. With 12 high-performance, 5W LEDs, this light bar can be easily installed, quickly providing you with a solid and steady beam of light that will handle the darkest of trails. The design makes for really easy bracket customization and set-up. For the brightness you get, the current draw is surprisingly low, so you can ride for longer. The light output has an excellent range, and unlike other options, the lights are arranged from end to end for very bright periphery light. Across the entire angle of lighting, the trail will appear like it is during the day, which is brilliant considering the low current draw. Fewer light kits will provide you with such a bright, enjoyable and safe RZR experience.
