Ryan: These Axial LED Black Daymaker headlights are for those of you that have a 1997 TJ through the 2018 JK that are looking for a huge upgrade to those factory headlights. This is gonna be a nice easy one-out-of-three wrench installation that anybody can do in their driveway, and we'll talk more about that in just a second.The TJs had a sealed beam headlight out of the factory, and they weren't very good. The JKs, not a sealed beam, they were a bulb in a reflector housing, but again, left a lot to be desired. So if you're looking to upgrade, you can upgrade the light source, you can upgrade the actual reflector, or you can upgrade to something like this, which is gonna be a little bit more expensive but be the best possible light output you can get. And this is an LED light source inside of a projector. And the reason that this is so much brighter than some of the other options is because the projector inside of this controls the light so well. You can have a very, very bright light that is below a very sharp cutoff so none of that light is getting scattered into the eyes of oncoming traffic. If you have a reflector housing, it's a little harder to control that light, so the light can't be quite as bright.So this is going to give you a number of different projectors inside of this black housing, so you're gonna get a stealthy, very modern look to the Jeep, but also a ton of very usable light on the road. This is going to be an option that's gonna be a little bit less expensive than some of the other choices out there, while still being a great upgrade over stock. These headlights are only going to run you $120. That is going to be a pretty good deal. There are versions of these headlights that are going to be significantly more expensive, almost ten times as expensive, and they may have a little bit better optics, throw a little bit more light, have a slightly different color temperature, but for the price of these, these are still going to be a massive improvement over the factory lights in your TJ or your JK, and I do think they're gonna be worth the cost.These are gonna be a seven-inch round headlight, so they'll fit in either your TJ or in your JK. If you do have a JK, you'll have to make sure that the factory headlights are a halogen headlight, or you'll have to pick up a halogen headlight bucket. If you have the factory LED lights in your JK, these will not fit without swapping out the headlight bucket. These are going to be a die-cast aluminum housing with a polycarbonate lens, and again, multiple projectors on the inside. They'll produce light at 6,000K color temperature, which is going to match a lot of the other auxiliary LED lights that you may have or may in the future install on your Jeep. They're gonna produce 3200-4500 lumens, depending on whether you're looking at the low beam side or the high beam side, and you're going to have a number of adapters that come in the box with these, so, again, they'll plug right into your TJ or your JK, even your later-model JKs that may otherwise have some issues with the CAN bus system and the LED headlight, that's gonna be taken care of by these adapters right here. Now I'll have a member of the install team show you how you get these installed.Man: Tools required for this install are a panel removal tool, a T15 Torx bit, and an electric impact or ratchet. To start this install, you're gonna wanna open your hood and remove your front grille to gain access to your headlight bezels. In order to remove your front grille, you're gonna wanna take out the six plastic retainer clips at the top, disconnect your marker lights at the bottom, and gently pull back to release the clips.Now, using a T15 Torx bit, you're gonna remove the four screws holding in each headlight. This vehicle's already equipped with some headlight guards, but it's held in with the same factory retainers. With the four bolts removed, you can pull your headlight out just far enough to get to the clip on the back of the headlight. You're gonna wanna slide the red retaining clip back and push down on the tab to release the tab. Now you can repeat the same process on the other side.At this point, you can connect your supply jumper harness to the factory clip, and tuck the harness in so that it does not interfere with the headlight installation. Now, at this point you can connect your new headlight to your jumper harness and get everything back into place in the reverse order of removal. The installation is the exact same process on the other side.Before you put your grille back on, it's a good idea to check your lights to make sure they all work, before you put everything back together and you have to take it apart again. Now that we've checked for proper light operation, we can reinstall our grille and wrap this up. Now, with your grille reinstalled, reconnect your marker lights, and you're done.Ryan: So if you're looking to improve those headlights in your Wrangler, I would recommend this option from Axial, and you can find it right here at extremeterrain.com.

Product stopped working in 2 weeks
This item is not made to fit right into the bracket without any hassle. The hub for the headlight sticks out when it is screwed down using a third hand. The passenger side LED went out within two weeks. The XT customer service folks were very kind to send me a replacement item, but within 10 months of use, the driver side went out. It stays off at low beam and flickers at high beam.Helpful (1)

LED headlight install
Similar to other reviews, my plugs didn’t snap together tightly, but I never do wiring without tape and dielectric. Snap the plugs, they have a flat on one side that easily accommodates a zip tie to hold them together, then placed second tie around the plug to keep that one from sliding off. Complete the install by wrapping both plugs with good quality (3m) electrical tape. Easy to install and great improvement both in looks and brightness. Less than half an hour to install.Helpful (1)

Wiring harness problems.
So far I'm happy with them. Just wish the wiring harness connection fit correctly. Had to tape them together at the point where the original harness from the vehicle connects. The connector that came with the headlights seems to be too small. Fix that and I would give 5 starsHelpful (1)

Does these lights offer plug and play on 2017 jeep. also do they have both hi and lo beams
The Axial LED Black Daymaker Headlights are equipped with both high and low beam lights. These will be a direct replacement for your OEM lights.
Do these require an anti-flicker harness or should they be ok as is?
These high-powered, round 7" LED lights come with built-in EMC function for anti-flicker so you won't need an extra decoder to prevent interference from electrical currents.
Do these have DRL lights, or are they just low/high beam?
The Axial LED Black Daymaker Headlights are equipped with both high and low beam lights. These will be a direct replacement for your OEM lights including the DRL function.
Are there headlights with a higher lumen for low beam than this? I just installed them and it is not as bright as my off-brand lights from Amazon.
We do have an option for a brighter low and high beam from Axial. https://www.extremeterrain.com/axial-led-halo-headlights-w-drl-amber-turn-signals-9717.html
My Jeep came from Canada which has daytime running lights that can't be turned off, will these still work?
Yes, these Axial headlights will still work with daytime running lights.
The Axial LED Daymaker Headlights are covered under a 30-Day warranty.
The Axial LED Black Daymaker Headlights will feature plastic lenses.
These would have SAE/DOT markings yes.
Since LED lights do not put off much heat at all, these most likely would not get warm enough to melt snow off of them in the winter.
The Axial LED Black Daymaker Headlights will carry DOT/SAE markings, however this is for federal level. we recommend checking with local authorities on the legality in your specific area.
These are not compatible with JL models.
The Axial LED Black Daymaker Headlights will not mount in the bumper, but instead will mount in the OEM headlamp location in the grille.
