Default Is it possible to put dimmable headlights on a 2009 EZgo

I would like to install dimmable front lights on a 2009 EZgo txt for hunting season. Even if I use them on separate batteries is fine. Actually any suggestions on how to dimly light my way to my parking spot would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

Factory head lights?
I have factory headlights with turn signals.
I swapped yellow signal bulbs for white bulbs and turn on/off with toggle switch as poor mans hi beams.
You could do same turning onturn signal bulbs with toogle switch without turning on head lights.

Great idea! I did the same for a school sports cart with bright LED lights, I made them flash tho. Just used the stock light bar "turn signal" spots. My goal was slightly different, but an easy option. The turn signal area of the stock txt front light bar have their own generic plug, can easily be repurposed. I think they use "906" wedge lamps. If your front lights look like this, you can probably do it easy. I'm not sure how hard it would be with the fancy LED aftermarket stuff, but the common factory stuff (and the common Stretch aftermarket stuff of old days) used the super common "spade conectors', so the wire connection would be "simple as pie", so they say. As much as I disliked "stretch" wire harnesses (we made our own harness, but the lights were typically ok). The other aftermarket brands feel to me cheap, even cheaper than the Stretch ones. Over the years, the aftermarket "claims" to have gotten better, but it feels just as cheap as ever. Most of the "LED light kits" are lame, and I would prefer the old halogen version, because when it crapped-out, you could find the loose connection, or bad bulb (new H3 bulb at the auto parts store). Now, the cheap led stuff everyone loves has the problem of this, one lamp totally/half craps out (due to ultra cheap power supplies to the LEDs), and no parts are easily available to fix... Just buy whole entire new kit cheap AF on eBay. I use LEDs too, but I am not a fan of the aftermarket headlight replacement stuff. Works really awesome for marker lights & tail lights. The headlamp replacements always seem to have one issue, or another that I find "low rate". Won't twist in right. Requires a fan on the back (that will love grass clippings), plugs are absolutely horrible, so awesome it melts the housing, sorry.

For some "low power lights" you should look at using the turn signal area in a stock txt light bar.....(I hope that's what you have).

Sorry, rant over.....



To those who want to hate, yes I know that picture is not quite a OEM light setup, it was the closest I could get that wasn't one of the fancy LED ones. Try to find a pic, please do post it..... Everyone selling the LED magic.

I appreciate the information cobra,1 and cgtech. I will look mine over and see if I can do that. If I remember right though my lenses are orange on my turn signals which on mine are not actually turn signals but switched with the headlights.
I just purchased this and have it in the shop to get new batteries, motor and controller. Also, trying to decide if I should upgrade to 48volt from the 36. Going to post that question as well
Thanks again!
