Simple installation for anyone.
Hey. What's up, guys? Ryan here from ExtremeTerrain, and today I'll be reviewing and installing the Axial 3-inch six led cube lights with flood beam. This is for the Jeep owner who is just looking for a very affordable option to give them some additional lighting for those nighttime drives. It's perfect for those of you that like to venture out after dark, whether you're just driving down a back road or you're hitting these trails, as these 3-inch lights while relatively small pack a very powerful punch. Now, these lights are small enough that you can basically mount them anywhere you have a good spot, and they're powerful enough to get you through even the darkest of drives. Now, these are LED lights. Each one of these lights has six LEDs. These are 4-watt CREE LEDs with a high intensity. They're gonna produce a very bright white light that is close to 6000 Kelvin. Now, housing is made from durable aluminum. They have an acrylic lens. This is all gonna seal that up really nicely, and it's gonna keep those internals very safe. The housing is finished off with a black powder coating. It's gonna add to that aggressive styling, so that's gonna protect that aluminum from corrosion. Now, these lights have an IP rating of 67, making them waterproof, dirt and dustproof and allowing you to submerge them up to 1 meter for up to 30 minutes.Now, these lights are completely bolt-on. They come with their own hardware and brackets to install. And, of course, these lights are sold individually and by themselves, so if you're looking to wire them up, you will need to get a harness and a switch. Well, we have plenty of options to choose from on our website. Now, currently, these lights are coming at right around $35 on our website, making them a very affordable option and very reasonably priced when compared to other options of the same design. Now, as far as installation goes, I'm gonna give this a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter as you can get this light installed in under an hour just using basic hand tools. Now, with that being said, let's hop into the install.Tools to be used for this install: 3/8 drive ratchet, 5-millimeter Allen. So before we get started with this installation, I want to say one of the nice things about this light is it comes with its own little bracket. This bracket is gonna attach to the light. Since it has a hole in the bottom and comes with hardware, you can pretty much bolt it to any flat surface that has a hole in it or if you have an aftermarket bumper that has light tips. Now, for this particular installation, we're gonna be installing it on our light brackets here which don't utilize this bracket, so we don't need it. So with that being said, we're gonna install some of thehardware in this light, and we're gonna get this light bolted on to this mount. So using the hardware provided, we have some nuts that we need to drop down into these lights. And these little captured seats, that's gonna hold the nuts in place while we thread the bolts that they provide us with through the outside. So as you can see down here, almost likely you can see down here, we got that nut situated in there. It's gonna have a flange on it. We want that to face towards the outside of the light. We're gonna try to keep that in place while we get the other side in. These are pretty tricky to do, so you can probably use a magnet that would help you get these in and out. So what we want to do is we want to get the bracket in between this nut and this outside flange. So we're gonna try to do that while we get this on to the bracket, and then we'll get these bolts installed without dropping these nuts out of it. So then whether you're using aftermarket brackets like this or if you're using the brackets that come with it, you need to slide those in between the nuts and that outside flange. And then once we get that in, we're gonna push our little Allen head bolts that they give us in through the outside, and we're gonna get this thing tightened up. Get these started, then we'll go get a wrench, and we'll tighten these down. So to tighten up these little Allen-headed bolts, we're gonna use a 5-millimeter Allen key. I'm just gonna go ahead and snug these up.So that's gonna cover the installation of the light. Now, these lights, they just come as individual lights, and they have this little pigtail, so you'll need to get a harness and a switch. We offer many options on the website, and you can check those out. For this particular install, I'm gonna wire this thing up really briefly just to show you what this looks like when it's on.So we got this whole thing wired up, so I'm gonna show you what it looks like. So that's gonna wrap it up for my review and installation. For more videos and products like this, check us out at extremeterrain.com.
