Ya, the wires and the correct tail lights, would have been there on an 08' Sportsman since an 08' was prior to the XPs coming out in 09'. The kit for the 08 has a switch and two bulbs in it. You will need wires and the tailights that have the clear area in them with a place for the bulbs. You can buy the kit, since it has the switch in it that you will need. But I found that you can just order the same switch from the LE model for a few bucks less, since the tail lights will come with the bulbs.
Also, I almost forgot, the tailights have a place on them that requires a plug to plug into the lights. That plug was somewhat dificut to come up with, so I had to improvise on both of mine, with bare wires and some silicone sealant direct into the plug on the tailights. Crude but it works. The actual tail light plugs still work, just had to improvise a way around not having a plug for the worklight plug portion.
