Well I’m an avid hunter snd shot a deer last night and grabbed the new general to go get it. What I realize is that a rear light would be awesome looking for ideas?? I do have a back windshield. Obviously I could just throw. Another light bar on the back just checking to see what others have done

I was in the same situation, but we were shooting pigs lol. This is what I did. I had some sheet aluminum that I cut out to reinforce the plastic roof. Just sandwiched it up there and then riveted into place and then bolted the light to that. Then just wired them up. I have them on a 3 position switch. On, off, on with reverse.

If you watch some of LongSlyde's youtube videos of his installs on Polaris Generals, you will see what he used on his and on our old 17 General. We are in the process of doing the same to our 21 General XP.

Super bright pro armour 10inch flood. Works awesome. The whole reason I put it on was to load deer and beer into the back.

On my 20 deluxe I had I put a rigid side shooter off the center roof mount (2 screws on back of cab by roof). Wired it from the pulse bar to a switch in the dash to the light (wires through cage as much as possible). That light was FANTASTIC!!! It lit up the box and a 15'-20' half circle around the rear of the machine. I plan on the exact same setup on my new 22...

I recommend some Amazon side shooter lights. 180 degree span. Make sure to purchase IP 68 quality or IP69. This is the waterproof of LED lights. They are not expensive

Can you show of the installation area? Thinking about adding some rears to our 2019 but the roof is hindering o good mount location.

I did that, but it's not entirely clear where and how the are mounted. Was looking for where the bolt went through. If he fabbed something up or if the are attached to that style roof.

Seems like I am searching for the impossible in finding rear lights that fit under the roof line in each corner where they look like they "should" go. I am looking to light up the bed area primarily which is looks like the lights you have chosen will however, I am also wanting at least a reasonable about of illumination behind the vehicle for backing around in the dark. Do you find these lights to meet that criteria??

Amazon has several that fit, under the roof line, low profile that provide a lot of illumination, LED.
