Merideth: If you're not a fan of the lighting performance or even the styling of your factory headlights, these Axial 7-inch LED Headlights with the RGB Backlight, Black Housing, and the Clear Lens will be a great addition to your 1997 to 2018 TJ or JK Wrangler. Now, whether your factory headlights are starting to show some wear and tear, and you need to refresh the housing, or you just want an overall more modernized look to the front end of your Wrangler, this set of headlights will get the job done.Now, these will also significantly increase your lighting performance, with the multiple projector LEDs on the inside, and offer a lot of styling with the RGB backlight, that will allow you to customize the look whenever you want to, with the included remote control. Now, the headlights will feature a black housing and a clear polycarbonate lens, to offer a stealthier look than other choices, while being very durable and able to withstand any lighter hits from kickup, or even any branches from the trail. And I also like the fact that this comes with a riveted border, which will just add that much more aggressive styling to the front end of the Jeep.Now, speaking of durability, now, this set will come with an IP67 water and dustproof rating, for optimal protection to the LEDs inside. These will also include high-intensity white OSRAM LEDs, which will increase that light output, especially paired with the projector lenses, creating a more uniform beam pattern, for better visibility, and offering a lot more of a modernized appearance.Not to mention, these will include the multicolor RGB lighting, where you can switch the color and/or the function on the fly, including strobing and pulsating modes, again, with the included remote control. Now, when it comes to price, this will be pretty average, at around $250 for the set. Now, compared to other choices in the category, again, this is going to offer a little bit more, with the color shift features, while also including the multiple projector setup, for great lighting performance, but also a non-traditional style compared to other options.Now, other choices on the page may be styled a little bit differently, again. They may have a different bulb type, like an HID, or have turn signal functions included in the lighting itself. Now, I think if you're looking for more of dynamic styling for the front end of your Jeep, and you want to be able to customize the lighting to your personal preference, then this is a great kit to do it. Now, install will be pretty easy, at a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, taking you about an hour to get the job done with some pretty basic hand tools.I would like to mention that this will require a little bit of lighting for the color shift features here. However, it is very straightforward, and that's why we're gonna keep it at a one out of three. Now, at this point, we can head over to the shop and check out a detailed breakdown of the install. So, that's gonna wrap it up for me. Let's go ahead and jump into it.Male Speaker: For this install, we're gonna use a Phillips head screwdriver, a pair of wire strippers, with a crimper, some wire cutters, trim removal tool, and a few male-end quick-disconnect wire crimp ends.All right. So, today we're gonna be installing a set of LED headlights on a 2014 Jeep Wrangler. Okay. So, our first step is we're gonna remove the front grille. And to do that, we're gonna remove six push clips, with our trim removal tool. So, we're gonna slide the trim removal tool underneath, kind of wiggle, and pry up, being careful not to bend the head or rip the head off. Once they're up, should be able to pull it out just like that. We're gonna do these guys all across the top. At times, they might come apart in two pieces. Just use that trim removal tool and pull the second half out too. That one. And the last one down.Okay. So, now that we have those push clips out of the top of this grille, we can grab it firmly from the bottom, give it a nice pull, and these retention clips are gonna pop out of the rad support, just like that. Don't walk away with it, because they're plugs connected to these lights, we're gonna have to take off. Okay. Now we can get access to the turn signal, here behind the grille. There's this clip here. We're gonna push this back. This is a lock. So, once that's pushed back, we can push the tab down at the end, and pull it right off. And then we're gonna go ahead and repeat this exact process on the other side.Now that we have access to these four screws holding the trim ring over the headlight, we can take our Phillips head screwdriver and go ahead and pull them out. There's two. Third one is underneath here. Make sure you're holding the headlight, because they'll fall out once you have these screws out here. And remove the trim ring. Headlight should be able to come out of the socket. And we have a plug back here, the same style, with that red safety clip. Push it back. Push the tab down. Should be able to pull it right off the headlight. And then we'll go ahead and repeat the exact process on the other side.So, now that we've got the factory headlight uninstalled, before we can put the new headlight in, we need to do a little bit of wiring. Down under the headlight, on the turn signal plug, we have three wires. Black is ground, white and red, which is turn signal, and white and brown, which is daytime running lights. We already had two wires spliced into these as an extension, and what we're gonna go ahead and do is install one of these male quick connectors on both of the wire extensions. So, you can go ahead, strip them, just like that. Spin it. And we're actually gonna fold these over, because these are a bit big for the gauge of wire. Slide the pin, till it's just peeking out of the end. We'll get our crimper, fold the leaves down. Just like that. And then do the same thing to the other extension wire.So, now we're ready to install the headlight. On the back of the headlight, there's this harness peeking outta here, with a couple plugs on it. This is just the headlight plug to go to the body. This is the RGB crossover, which is gonna go to the other headlight. And you have two female quick-disconnect ends, on a blue wire and a green wire. First, we're gonna start off with the headlight plug. There should be two separate harnesses in the box. One is an LED CAN bus module, that'll keep your turn signals from flashing too quickly. So, go ahead and attach them, like that. Sometimes they're a little tricky. You gotta line the pins up just right. Gotta be careful. Sometimes you can actually push the pin out of the back of the plug as well, if it's not lined up quite right. Like that.And then we're gonna take the adapter harness, plug that into the end. Just like that. And that's ready to plug into the vehicle. Next, we have those turn signal wires. So, blue is gonna be for your turn signal. And in my case, that is a yellow wire. Pop that in. Then green is for the running lights. Go ahead, take our red wire, push that in as well. And then last, we have the RGB crossover. I still have mine wire-tied up, to keep it nice and easy to move around during the install.There's a keyway on that, so what we're gonna do is line up the keyway, just push it in, till the O-ring compresses. That's gonna keep moisture out, and then we can use this collar and tighten it down. The next thing I did was unravel the RGB crossover. What we're gonna do is pass it up through the headlight socket, next to the power steering reservoir and up into the engine bay. And this is gonna let us cross it over to the other headlight. Pull that all the way through, just like that.Now we're ready to put the headlight in. So, make sure that you tuck your wires nicely. Fish them through, so that nothing gets crimped or stuck on anything. We can go ahead and plug the headlight plug in to the green factory headlight connector. Push till you hear a click, and then slide that red safety tab down so it doesn't come off. And you can kind of tuck all this in there like that. And to know the headlight is the right direction, you should be able to read the letters embossed in the lens.So, we'll line that up in the housing, get it sitting nice in there, just like that. And then what we can do is take our trim ring, put it around the headlight. Then you can go ahead and get a screw started by hand, while you're holding the headlight in. We're taking our Phillips head screwdriver, starting one of the screws. Can put the next one in. There's two at the top, and then two at the bottom. Well, side. Side there, and the bottom over here. And that's this headlight installed. To do the other side, just repeat the same process.Next step is we're gonna install the grille. So, drop it into place, and don't forget to plug in your turn signals. Go ahead and push it on till you hear a click, and then, should be able to drop that red safety, just like that. And then do the same thing on the other side. Next, we're gonna set the grille in place up top, like that, and then push the retention clips in on the bottom.Line your grille up on the top. We're gonna take our push clips and drop them one by one into their holes, to secure the grille. Five, and six. So, to get started to use the RGB function on these headlights, make sure that you have your lights set to just the running lights, because these RGBs will not work with the headlights on. Once you have your running lights turned on, you can hit the power button on the remote and you should see some colors come up. We can walk through a couple of the steps here. You got green, blue, white. You can go through just solid colors, like that. And down here, there's a couple modes that you can go through, where it'll jump between colors. Can fade between colors. And then you have a speed adjustment for those fades too. So, you can set this and customize it exactly how you'd want for something like a car show or something like that.And that's that. Those were the Axial 7-inch LED Headlights with RGB Backlight, Black Housing, and Clear Lens, for the '97 to '18 Jeep Wrangler TJ and JK.
