It's Joe from ExtremeTerrain. In this video, we're going over the Axial Vision LED Tail Lights with a Clear Lens, fitting all '07 to '18 JKs. Now this guy right here, it's gonna be a great option for you if you're looking for a modern LED tail light that's gonna be completely plug and play and on top of all that, budget-friendly as well.So first thing's first, what do we have going on here? Let's talk about this housing then I'll show you some features of it and we'll dive into the install a little bit later on. So this is a clear lens over top of a blackout housing. Now what that's gonna do really is give you the best of both worlds. You get that modern blackout LED styling, however, with the clear lens on there, it's going to allow the most amount of light to pass through and that's exactly what you want out of any brake light.Now one thing I really like about these is they're really simple to install. The LED conversion is done completely on board, so these are gonna drop right into the factory harnesses, no wiring knowledge necessary to get these hooked up, it's really quick and simple which is a huge plus in anyone's book. Now as far as lighting goes, so you could see this is gonna be a little bit more angular than the factory stuff, that's to say the least, and we're gonna get this side by side with the factory stuff in just a minute here and really highlight the differences, but first, let's dive into what kind of lighting you can expect out of these.This bar graph section here that basically spans the whole tail light, that's gonna make up the majority of your rear lighting, your brake lights, running lights, turn signals, that's all gonna be on that bar graph section right there. You could see in the middle here we have our reverse lights, those are gonna be a lot brighter than factory, that's for sure, and they're gonna come with a nice color temperature upgrade as well, it's gonna give you a nice bright white light which is a huge upgrade over the factory stuff again. On the side, we do get a reflector as well just for some added safety and we have another upgrade there. We have two LED lights, one on top and one below that reflector, which again just adds to the visibility and gives a nice little modern touch.One thing I really want to highlight with these tail lights, it's in that LED conversion. Now, these are gonna come with a resistor or anti-flicker box pre-installed right out of the box. Now what that's there to combat is called hyperflashing. Now a lot of times when you swap over to an LED, these are gonna use such a little amount of power compared to that standard halogen bulb. The Jeeps tend to think that the tail light is actually burnt out and when your tail lights burn out, they tend to blink a little bit quicker to let you know that. Now that resistor is there to trick the Jeep into thinking that these are drawing more power than they actually are, hence these will not hyperflash on you, which is a great thing. Of course, these are also DOT and SAE approved. You can see that right by this stamp at the bottom of the glass right here, so no matter what state you live in, these guys are gonna pass inspection every time.So next up, let's talk a little bit about pricing. Now, I mentioned earlier these are gonna be budget-friendly and that's definitely the case, one of the most budget-friendly on the website coming in right around 200 bucks for the pair, really a great return on investment here. If you like this style, you're looking for an easy to install tail light to give a more modern blackout touch to the rear of your Jeep, these are gonna be a great option.So let's get to the good stuff. Let me show you how to get these guys installed on your Jeep. Like I said earlier, completely plug and play, really easy, there's barely any tools required. And for that, I'm gonna give it a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, should take you at most 15 minutes to half an hour, so without any further ado, let me show you what tools you will need and how it's done.You're gonna need a number two Phillips head screwdriver, 5.5-millimeter socket and a ratchet. So the first tool we're gonna need for JK tail light removal is a good old Phillips head screwdriver. There are four screws around the tail light, we got to get those all removed and then we can work from the inside out. So now that whole bad boy is gonna slide off, we could disconnect it. There's a release tab right here and you give that a firm press, you pull that apart, get rid of that housing.So now we have the driver side of uninstalled, we can go ahead and unwrap our new tail lights. We got to do a little bit of prep work on them before we head back to the Jeep. You can see this resistor here pretty much just flopping in the wind, they give you this mounting bracket so you can secure that down. Basically we're gonna use that tiny hardware to bolt the two together, you're gonna need a 5.5-millimeter socket and a small Phillips head screwdriver to do so.And while we're here, we're also gonna drop on these clips, they're gonna sit on there just like so. And that is basically going to attach to a metal piece inside the Jeep, you're gonna see how that works in just a second. For now, we're gonna go ahead and pull in the other side and get that started as well.So, for now, we're gonna go ahead and grab our driver side tail light. We're gonna need two of these speed clips and we can head back to the Jeep and get this tightened down. So first we're gonna have to install this resistor plate that we just bolted together and that is gonna go on this piece of metal right here and it's basically gonna clamp down with that clip that you saw earlier. So we're just gonna push that in place and they give you another one for good measure. Just like that. And it's gonna be as simple as plugging the tail light back in right to that factory harness. Make sure that clicks in place, push all the wiring in and secure with the Phillips head screws.Now, whenever I'm doing tail lights on JK I always get ahead of myself and forget they're only held long with the two inner ones and I always end up removing all four. So really all you need to remove are the two inner ones and then when you're reinstalling this, you only need to tighten down the two inner ones. It's really only these two that you need uninstall and re-install.So now that we have one side completely installed and we still have our factory stuff over on the other side, figure now would be the perfect time to basically put these two down next to each other and highlight some big differences. Now the style is gonna be the most obvious one, right? We have this traditional style over here, red lens over top of a halogen bulb. We're getting rid of that completely in exchange for some modern LED styling, this is gonna be a lot more angular than that other one. You can see we have sort of like a line bar graph looking section there, that's gonna make up the majority of our brake light running light turn signal, which in my opinion is a huge upgrade over that factory halogen bulb. That diffused sort of fiber optic look gives you a much more modern touch for the rear of your JK. Also contributing to that, we got upgrades for the reverse lights, they're gonna be much brighter than that factory white halogen bulb at the bottom on the factory light and they're gonna come with a color temperature upgrade, it's gonna be a much cleaner white light as well.Now on the outside of these two tail lights, we got some upgrades as well. On the factory one, we have just a standard reflector at the bottom here and at the top the brake light turn signal running light, that's allowed to shine through right up here. Now that is gonna be upgraded on our new light. We have two individual LEDs, they're gonna turn on with your brake light running light turn signal, obviously. And we have our standard reflector in the middle. So without any further ado, we're gonna grab that tail light, we're gonna head back to the Jeep and get that buttoned up in the same way.So we're gonna start by removing just the two inside screws this time again. With the hardware removed, we can go ahead and pull out our tail light and again we're gonna press on the release tab, separate the harness and that makes room for our resistor. Go ahead and push that into place. Go ahead and throw on a second clip there. Plug back in our new tail light and tighten it down with the Phillips head screws.Now, guys, that is gonna do it for me, it's also gonna do it for the Axial Vision LED Tail Lights with a Clear Lens, fitting all '07 to '18 JKs. As always, guys, thank you so much for watching. And make sure you keep it right here at ExtremeTerrain for all things Jeep.
