Voltage reducers are needed for electric golf cart situations. Gas carts like yours can wire lights to the 12v battery. Your charging system is only good for about 15amps, so don't overdo it. A nice light bar in the 27-36watt range should bring you plenty of light, without taxing your electrical system too much. A wiring harness with a relay for higher output LEDs will not be hard to install, instructions will be included. Lower power lights can most likey be spliced into your existing headlight circuits, if your cart already has them.

Here is the one I mounted on my DS. The light bar serves as the headlight and the 2 small ones mounted in the body are DRL/turn signal combos.

My cart didn't come with headlights, so I mounted a 12" double row light bar to the shock cover. I also added a 24" double row light bar to the top. I ran the wires for the top light through my roof strut. I'm running relays for both and using a separate 12 volt battery with a Blue Sea 12 circuit fuse panel for all my accessories. The last thing I need is to run down my cart batteries and get stuck in the woods.

Here is the switch plate I made for all my rocker switches and my FN1.

Looks good! As for running your main pack down in the bush, you DO realize what your lights draw ampwise compared to the cart, right?

Yeah, I'm lucky if I'm drawing 30 amps total for all my lights. It just makes me feel better

30 amps at 12v maybe but I doubt it. I use a 120w lightbar [draws 92w 'cause they are rarely ever driven at full ], regular incandescent headlamps, [2x30w] and led taillights and a 10w pilot/dash light, all in, 3.7 amps from the pack, 4 amps in really cold weather. With my old pack [160 ah batts] it was calculated here that it would take over 24 hours to run the pack down to 50%. Haven't calculated how long with my new 190ah pack.

Like I said I'm "lucky" if I'm drawing 30 amps. I just calculated quick on the actual watts of the light, not exactly what watts they draw.
160 watt light bar @ 12 volts = 13.3 amps
72 watt light bar @ 12 volts = 6 amps
36 watt rear lights @ 12 volts = 3 amps
100 watt spot light @ 12 volts = 8.3 amps
Obviously these will not all be used at the same time. My 48 volt pack consists of four 12 volt batteries that only have a 75 AH rating. They seem to be working fine, but I don't want to chance it. I still have no idea what my run time will be.
