Old thread I realize however, I went with a full LED kit entirely seperate from factory lights. A couple thoughts on why I went the route I did:
1. while it is possible to rig up the factory lights to do what we need, it can be complex (even for an experienced 12v guru like me)
2. unless there's a significant mounting issue, I prefer to have my turn signals completely seperate from my tail lights. Having them seperate gives me more redundancy in terms of lighting on the machine.
As I couldn't find exactly what I was after, (at least for under $200) I set out on a journey to build what I wanted.
Being in the 12v RV and Marine industry for years, I have access to many 12v goodies.
I ended up designing the full system which you'll see below with a couple switch options.
I prefer the column mounted design as it is far easier to actually use. (I also made a toggle switch kit, and have the rocker switches available too which is what I did in my toyota buggy)
Having used all 3 switches, the column mounted unit is by FAR my favorite. And not just any column mounted switch......there are ridiculous plastic type column switches all over the internet that are just plain trash IMHO. The plastic brackets can and do easily brake right off when bumped. I sourced a full metal body switch. The thing is incredibly tough. Case and bracket and lever/stick are metal. No trash, this thing is stout! And to top it off, it has an indicator on the end of it (which I converted to LED) that flashes to indicate you have a signal on.
Anyhow, that's the route I went and I'm extremely pleased with it. For the money, you can't go wrong. Some kits out there with a column switch like this are more than twice the amount and the switch isn't near as robust. Should fit polaris RZR and Ranger general, can am commander maverick and about any other side by side or UTV where you have enough realistate to drill a 3/4" hole to mount the LED's. And if you're afraid of drilling into your plastic....don't be. See pics below from an install. Looks factory IMHO. Clean and neat.
