Default Auxiliary lights

I saw an 850 skidoo that had auxiliary led lights integrated into the hood. Does anybody make auxiliary lighting for the indy xc that looks that good?

Not seen an auxiliary light for Axys. Bought single row LED driving light from Canadian Tire, $60.00 plus relay and some wire connectors. Operates on high beam. Shines much further down the trail.

Is the purpose of the relay to just make the LED light work on High Beam only? Just wondering why some use a relay vs. just an on/off switch...

To use switch as just a switch vs running the light power thru it. Power for the light comes right from the battery. The added demand thru switch is just microvolts.

I also custom installed a 6" led bar(cheap amazon) wired trough a relay switched with high beam. Hooked it up on dc chassis power with 5amp fuse(still have to test it)
Purpose of relay is to avoid too many amps on the switch/circuit. Also since it's on high beam only the load shed relay will cut the power if you are in a low voltage situation so your oil pump and stuff keep priorty.

It lights up the area in front of the sled that the head light does not. It's also wired directly to the battery so you can leave it on with the sled shut off. About 1000 lumens of flood light. Works great when you need light at night...such as when tying your sled down in the trailer, working on your buddies Arctic Cat...etc...

Less than $20.00 at any auto supply store. Got mine at Canadian Tire. For my American friends Napa for sure.
