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.
