I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com, and this is my review of the Raxiom 4.5-inch 9 LED lights, fitting all 1987 to 2016 Wranglers. These lights are for those of you who want all the benefits of an LED light that is a lot of light output from a small package and at a low amperage draw but aren't a fan of the more modern, square lighting style. So if you're looking for more of an old-school, round auxiliary light but you want the benefits of the modern technology, this is a nice place to look.I also like these lights in particular because Raxiom does a nice job of balancing both quality and cost. These lights feature diecast aluminum housing that is black powder-coated, so even if you do end up chipping the powder coat, you don't have to worry about rust because they're aluminum. The lenses on the lights are polycarbonate which means they're gong to be both scratch and break-resistant, and everything is sealed up to be water-tight. So whether you're using these on the wet, muddy trails or just driving down the road in the rain, you're not gonna have to worry about getting condensation behind the lens which can shorten the life of the light. Each one of these lights features nine individual three-watt LEDs that produce approximately 1,000 lumens at a 6,000K color temperature, and the pattern of each of these lights is a 30-degree flood pattern. All of that means that you're gonna get a ton of light, and they're gonna match any other auxiliary LED or LED headlights that you might have. As with most auxiliary LED lights, these do have a two-wire pigtail. So you will have to do a little bit of wiring to get them powered.Getting these lights mounted on your Jeep is really easy and they'll go on any light mount tab that's designed to accept a single post light. That means these will go on your bumper light tabs, your pull bar, or anywhere you're willing to drill a hole. Now, I wouldn't necessarily recommend these for an A-pillar mount, and that's because these do have a flood pattern, like we mentioned before, which can cause some of the light to hit the hood and bounce back into your eyes as the driver. Once you decide where you wanna mount these, you will have to do a little wiring to get them powered, and if you're comfortable doing automotive wiring, you should be able to make a harness pretty easily. If automotive wiring isn't your forte, Raxiom does offer an LED auxiliary wiring harness that includes a switch, a relay, a fuse, and all the wiring you need to get these powered up. The whole installation could take as little as an hour, depending on where you decide to mount them and how you decide to wire them, and you won't need any specialty tools. You'll just need a 14-millimeter socket and wrench, and whatever wiring tools you need for your installation. When you're shopping for LED auxiliary lights, they are lights priced literally all over the spectrum, from tens of dollars to a thousand dollars and more, and one thing I really like about the Raxiom lights is they do a nice job of balancing both quality and price. These are a really bright light, and they're really well built. These actually have a full lifetime warranty, but they won't completely break the bank. Now, those thousand dollar lights, they may have slightly more advanced optics so they might throw light a little bit further down the trail. But, to be honest with you, for what most of us use our Jeeps for and for the budget that most of us have, these are a great choice. So if you're somebody who needs or wants some additional light output from your Jeep, whether it's for driving down those dark back roads or for doing some night wheeling, and you want that new, more modern technology, but you're not crazy about the new, more modern, square LED light, look, this is a really nice balance. You get a little bit more of that old-school look, but you still end up with a really high quality light all at a fair price.So that's my review of the Raxiom 4.5-inch 9 LED lights fitting all 1987 to 2016 Wranglers that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

Bought these lights based on all the great reviews, however after a couple months one of the lights turned yellow. Both lights are so dim that even the regular headlights are brighter. Extremely disappointing, and you truly get what you pay for.Helpful (1)

Great at first
I was very happy with the look and function, but after very limited use, some leds are out. One light is still good, the other has 3 leds that don’t light. Looks terrible.Helpful (2)

These Raxiom lights were a replacement for the original lights that came off my 2006 LJ. They look great and are very bright. I'm really happy with the look and performance. My only concern is how well they hold up in a car wash. The bracket is really simple and doesn't provide any additional support than a single bolt to the mounting bracket. The previous mount had a bolt and pin in the back that would prevent the mount from spinning under force. Unfortunately that original mount was plastic; dryed out and broke off quickly. These Raxiom mounts are metal and should last. Again, hopefully they stay in position.Helpful (2)

Fog light replacement
Replaced lights on 2002 Wrangler. The lights arrived Before I was told they would a pleasant surprise. They went in easily, look better than originall, and are as bright as I was will ever need.Helpful (2)
In Steve's response, he "highly recommended" using a wiring harness when installing these lights rather than using the existing fog light wiring. Why?
Hello, when adding off road lights its always best to get a wiring harness for it. Our wiring harnesses are thicker wires and will always be capable of supporting the output from the lights. The existing harness is only meant for the factory lights, so not advised to put more powerful lights to those wires.
I have a pair of these Raxiom 4.5 in. round 9 LED lights (about 1 1/2 years) and several bulbs are out. Do you have or can you direct me to where I can obtain replacement LED bulbs for this unit.
Unfortunately the LED's within this Raxiom 4.5 in. Round 9 LED Light are not sold separately. If the lights were purchased here at ExtremeTerrain, the lights would have a 2-Year Full Warranty.We just ask you call in with your order number and send a few photos of the issues, to our Support email at Support@ExtrememTerrain.com.
What is the amp draw of these lights? Trying to figure out what circuit to tie into and can't find the amp draw.
The Raxiom 4.5 in. Round 9 LED Light should be installed in a circuit rated for at least 20 amps. We strongly recommend running these off of a relay, and hooking your switch to the control side of the relay for safe operation.
Can I splice these into the OEM wiring for the front fog lights?
These can be spliced into the OEM fog light wiring, however additional wiring components may be required.
Hi, would these lights (Item J100993) require an anti flickering harness for a Jeep JK? If so, which type?
These lights will require an independent switch and harness but would not require an anti flicker harness.
It would be best to go with a 14 gauge wire like we offer in the switch kits.
The Raxiom 4.5 in. Round 9 LED Light will include a universal mounting bracket and bolts, you will need to purchase atleast additional wiring and a switch. Depending on where you want to install the light an additional bracket system may be required.
For the best assitance in getting these wired up we recommend reaching out to our Wrangler experts over the phone or chat. As to your questions on returns I would direct you to our returns page, a link to there below. https://www.extremeterrain.com/Customer-Service-Pages/Returns/
The Raxiom 4.5 in. Round 9 LED Light use 16 gauge wiring.
Raxiom currently does not offer covers specific to their Raxiom 4.5 in. Round 9 LED Lights. You may be able to find a universal cover that is compatible.
We would recommend the Rugged Ridge Wiring Harness, item J13444 for these Raxiom 4.5 in. Round 9 LED Lights. Rugged Ridges harness only works with 2 and 3 lights, so you would need two harnesses. Many enthusiasts use on which for the two outer lights and another switch for the two inner lights. https://www.extremeterrain.com/rugged-ridge-off-road-light-1521062.html
The Raxiom 4.5 in. Round 9 LED Light do not have lens covers available separately, however this would be covered under the 2 year warranty as long as there is no damage to the lamp.
Hello, these are Off Road Lights only.
Hello, for the Raxiom 4.5 in. Round 9 LED Light (87-17 Wrangler YJ, TJ & JK) this is for 1 Round 9 LED Light.
The Raxiom 4.5 in. Round 9 LED Light (87-17 Wrangler YJ, TJ & JK) should be able to be spliced into your factory fog lights, however it is strongly recommended to run these on a separate wiring harness. A great wiring harness to pair this with would be the RAXIOM LED LIGHTING SWITCH KIT (87-17 WRANGLER YJ, TJ & JK); Item #J100996, which can be found here: http://www.extremeterrain.com/raxiom-led-switch-kit-j100996.html.
