Ryan: This Raxiom 2-inch Square LED Light is for those of you who that have a 1987 all the way up through the most current model year Wrangler, that are looking for a nice compact light, can be used as a reverse light, a work light, or a light right up on the front of your Jeep. Just something a little bit more compact than some of those other lights out there. It's sort of the standard size that a 3.5-inch square LED light has replaced some of those larger round lights. This is going to be significantly smaller than that, so, again, just a little bit of a different look. Of course, because it's smaller, also a little bit less light. But depending on your use, that could be just fine for you. This is going to be a two out of three wrenches for the installation because as you can see here, it just has a two-wire pigtail on it, which isn't abnormal for an auxiliary light. You wire this up however you see fit, however you need to, for however you're using it, but because of that wiring that's involved, again, two out of three wrenches.So, as with most other auxiliary lights, certainly most other Raxiom auxiliary lights, this is going to be an extruded aluminum housing, a polycarbonate lens. This has one single LED in the center of it, one single diode. It is going to produce light at right around that 6000K color temperature, like a lot of the other auxiliary lights out there. And for its size, it is going to be a pretty bright light. It is going to give you what I would consider to be a spot pattern. It's a pretty perfectly round pattern, but it is gonna be great for, again, a reverse light, work light, or mounted up on the front of your Jeep, wherever you decide to put it.Now, because this is a little bit of a smaller light than some of the other ones out there, this is also gonna be a little bit less expensive. This comes in right around $40 for one light. And these are sold individually, so do keep that in mind. If you're looking for a pair of them, you are going to have to order two. But, $40 per light I think is a pretty good deal for what you're gonna get here. So, like we said, two out of three wrenches for the install, let me show you how to do it. Man 1: Tools required for this installation: wire strippers, side cutters, and wire crimpers, a ten-millimeter socket with a 1/4-inch drive. Some consumable items are going to be zip ties, electrical connections, and some wire. And if you are using heat shrinkable electrical connections, I highly recommend using a heat gun.All right, so let's get these lights installed. I have my ten-millimeter nut, a flat and locking washer. We're just gonna set this into our light tab up top here. And I'm going to put my flat washer on first, followed by my locking washer, and that ten-millimeter nut. All right, now I have a ten-millimeter socket, I'm gonna tighten up this nut. And you don't need a tool up top because there are two tabs up there to hold that bolt in place. So, I'm actually gonna hold on to the top of the light, make sure it goes on there nice and square. All right, now comes wiring up these lights. I am going to wire them straight up to our factory fog light wiring harness. And I'll show you how we tap into that in just a little bit. But I am using butt end connectors, so I'm just going to slide this over our wire. And you will have to pick up some wire if you are doing this yourself. So I'm just gonna crimp this down. Pull on it a little bit, make sure it is nice and seated in there. Then I'm going with my ground wire right here, put that into my butt connector, again, crimp that down, pull on it and we're good. Get another one and get our positive wire connected. All right, now do that for both sides, and then we'll wire it up to our fog light harness. All right, guys, so this is our factory fog light harness and what we've done is we've added two butt connectors and two wires coming off of it. So, as you can see, the black right here is our ground and the white is going to be our positive or hot side. So, it is really simple. I like to use this way because there already is a built-in switch, relay, and fuse, so you don't have to add any extra wiring into your engine compartment, and find a clear path through your firewall, and add a switch to your dashboard. That is completely an option. There are a a hundred different ways you can wire up these lights. This is how we're doing it though.All right, so as you can see, connected to our factory fog light harness, are the male ends to a spayed connection. So we need the female end and we are just going to crimp these on as well. And we're gonna do this on both sides. Make sure you pull on it and it's tight. Since we're using the same colored wiring for our positive and negative, I'm just going to add a nice little piece of black tape to the negative side, so when I go to connect them, I don't connect them backwards. I'm just gonna flag it just like that on both sides.All right, so what we're gonna do now is take some time and use a heat gun to activate the shrink wrap feature on our butt end connectors, here. And this is just gonna keep them a little bit weather tight and watertight, to help prevent any corrosion. We're gonna do this to all the connections we just made, and then we will throw some electrical tape over top of everything. So before we tidy up all of our wiring, we definitely want to plug these in and test them out. Again, with that tape flagging it, that is going to be our ground, so let's plug that in first, and those spayed connectors just go into each other just like that, gonna connect our positive side. And we're gonna do this on both sides, so you definitely wanna test both lights out.All right, so now that we have our lights connected and wired up, we are going to test them out with our fog light switch. And you just pull with the stalk and there we go. Both lights are on, now we can tidy up our wiring harness.Now I have a roll of electrical tape here, I'm going to wrap up these two butt ends. And I'm going to start this loom, right here, where it's one wire and goes to two. And I'm going to wrap about a foot and a half section with my electrical tape. Start up here, above the butt connector and just start wrapping down.All right, so one of the last steps that I'm going to show you is how I'm going to route and maintain my cables. So, I don't want too much tension on this so I'm to give it a little slack, and I'm hiding my butt connectors right above this hoop here. So now I have my zip tie, tighten it up, and, again, make sure that there's no tension on that. I'm gonna tighten up what I got. I'll cut these in a minute, I just wanna make sure that my wire's where I want it to be. I'm also going to follow this bar down and, again, put my wire behind there. Zip tie that into place. Now, I like where my wire landed because we are going to keep these wires underneath our winch plate, right here, just to keep them out of any moisture, or road salt, or anything like that. But what I'm gonna do now is take my side cutters and take off the tail of my zip tie.All right, now we're gonna make our wiring connections for the final time. Again, that wire that I flagged for my ground is going to go to the back to our fog light harness and make sure you connect these on both sides. All right, I'm going to hide my wires underneath my winch plate.So that's gonna wrap up my install of the Raxiom 2.5-inch Square LEDs. And for all things Wrangler, keep it here at extremeterrain.com.

get what you pay for...
Get ready to modify everything to make it fit. I honestly don't know where to start... The mounting bracket doesn't conform to the light at all, there's spring memory in the steel, so no matter how much you tighten the mount it will always move. I can't say if this is expected or not since no instructions of any kind are included in the box. Very poor design, one of the two lights has a mind of its own, it can't decide if it's going to work from home day to the other. I've even hard wired it to make sure there were no switching issues. It will randomly work/not work. The bodies of these lights are a cheap aluminum/alloy of some kind, they are very brittle, you must handle these with care, I expect the next hail storm to destroy these if a trip down the highway doesn't first. I'd be surprised if they survive subermsion.Helpful (0)

I purchased 2 of these lights a few weeks back to use as reverse lights. They're super bright and much smaller than typical cubes. I mounted them by welding the brackets on to my rear bumper instead of drilling and bolting them on. I wired them to turn on and off with the stock reverse lights and also with a switch via a relay by wiring both of these inputs to the same pin on the relay. They work very well, they haven't fogged up after direct pressure washing, and the coating seems very durable. The quality is MUCH better than cheap Chinese lights. I'll probably buy another set.Helpful (1)

Cannot withstand a car wash
This (very expensive) single square LED light isn't waterproof at all! First time I washed my Jeep (manually, no power jets involved) it started malfunctioning. Now it flickers from time to time.Helpful (3)

Raxion 7.5 inch rectangular lights
Raxion 7.5 inch rectangular lights are nice looking and well-designed. I ordered them to go with a barricade light bar and although the light bar was a single Mount application, I found a way to mount 7.5 in lights and they look great.Helpful (1)

The price is reasonable, easy to install, and look great on my black rubicon! I haven't trail experienced, look forward to do so. Installation took me a little longer, I do the extras to route wiring, secured away for future installs.Helpful (2)

I upgraded my factory headlights to the Axial LED black daymaker headlights and decided to upgrade the fog lights too. These look great and are super bright. The lights themselves were easy to install. I saw a few people say they wired these directly to the OEM fog light harnesses but didn't want to risk them not working properly so I purchased the Rugged Ridge harness with a switch for two off-road fog lights.Helpful (8)

Great Little Lights!
Great lights for the price! Puts off a good amount of light for their size. They give the Jeep a really clean look.Helpful (7)
Is it possible to hook these up to the factory foglight hookups? I had factory LED fog lights, but the aftermarket bumper I bought does not have provisions for factory lights. So I was hoping to use these and mount them to the new bumper while utilizing the factory wiring harness, meaning I don't have to do any major rewiring. Will this work or will the draw be too much and will I need a relay?
The Raxiom 3 in. Square LED Light would not be able to be used with the OEM wiring, and a separate switch/harness would be required to prevent issues.
Is it a single light, or pair?
I have a Congo pro roof rack by Kargo Master Safari and I would like to mount these in the A-pillar area, are any brackets that would allow me to attach these to the roof rack since the front of the rack is bolted to the A-pillar?
My state requires that they be covered when not off-road, can you recommend a cover for these lights?
At this time we do not offer a cover for these lights.
Can these be used for highway on road driving or just off road trail?
These are designed to be used off-roading.
The Raxiom 3 in. Square LED Light have three 4 watt LED's each, giving them 12 watts per light (or 24 for the set)
Hello, you will need to buy a wiring harness for this, this would be a good option: http://www.extremeterrain.com/raxiom-led-switch-kit-j100996.html
These lights are suitable for use where you need them and could easily be spliced into your backup lights. You may need to check with your local law enforcement to see if they have any regulations on off road light covers or limitations on reverse light brightness.
