Hey, guys. So, today, I'm here with the Raxiom headlights with LED halos fitting all 2007 to 2018 JK Wranglers. So, if you've busted a headlight up on the trail, if your headlights are showing some normal wear and tear or one has burned out, and you're looking for a full replacement, you're looking for an upgrade to clean up the front end of your Wrangler, this option by Raxiom is definitely gonna be a really good one to take a look at. Now, this is gonna be for those JK owners out there that are content with the factory style of the headlight with the chrome reflector and the halogen bulb but are just looking for a little bit of refresh to the front end of their Wrangler, and they're looking for a little bit of an upgrade. Now, like I said, these are still gonna carry over that chrome reflector and the halogen bulb, but that little upgrade is gonna come with the LED halo, giving you a little bit of touch of styling. So, these are roughly gonna be $150, and I personally think that that's a really good price point for what these are. Now, other more expensive options that you may be seeing on the page, those are just gonna be for more in-depth designs, and they may have LEDs integrated into the whole headlight instead of just the halos. Personally, I think if you're looking for something simplistic, if you're just looking to clean up the front end of your Wrangler and give it a little bit of a touch of style, then this is gonna be a great option to take a look at. And not to mention, these also come with headlight buckets if that's something that you're looking to replace as well. So, install is gonna be a pretty easy one-out-of-three wrenches on the difficulty meter. You're gonna need a couple of hand tools to get the job done. And there's a little bit of wiring involved, but it's pretty simple. So, speaking of the install, let's jump into that now.The tools that I used for my install were a pair of pliers, a flat head screwdriver, a quarter-inch drive ratchet, a small extension, Phillips head screwdriver, and a T15 Torx bit. So, the first step through our install is just popping our hood. So, now we're gonna go ahead and take off these six clips that are holding in our grille. I'm gonna be using a flat head screwdriver. You can also use a trim removal tool. If you are using a flat head, just be careful of your paint. So, now we can pop our grille off being careful of our turn signal wiring harnesses. We are gonna disconnect those after we move our grille forward. Just give it a little tug, and we can lay our grille forward and disconnect our harnesses making sure that red tub is pulled forward, and we got our harness off. So, we can we can fully remove our grille. So, I'm gonna use a T15 Torx bit as well as a three-inch extension and a quarter-inch drive ratchet to remove the four screws that are holding our headlight onto our headlight bucket. Then, we can disconnect our harness and do the same thing on the other side. So, now that we have our stock headlight's out of our Jeep, I wanted to give you guys a side-by-side comparison on the new lights next to your stock ones. Now, overall, as far as style goes, these are gonna be very similar. So, they have the same chrome reflector. However, you do get that LED ring inside for a little bit of extra styling. Now, the actual bulb itself is gonna be halogen just like your factory lights. So if you're looking to keep it very simple, these are gonna be a great option. Now, these are gonna be a little bit more durable than your factory light. They have a polycarbonate lens on the front, and that just means that they're gonna be able to hold their own while still offering complete transparency. These are also going to be IP67 rated, which means no water or no dust is gonna be able to get inside and hurt or damage the actual bulb. So, all that dust kicking up on the trail is not gonna affect the lights. And if you take a dunk with the front end of your Wrangler, the lights inside are still gonna be okay. Now, what I do really like about this package compared to a lot of others on the page, this comes with new headlight buckets. Now, ours on our Wrangler are still okay, so we're just going to take the light out of here and install them on our stock headlight buckets. But if you were ever to damage them, if they were to ever break, you do have a replacement there, and that's something that I do really like about this package. So, enough about our light side by side, let's go ahead and install our new ones. So, I'm gonna take a Phillips head screwdriver and remove the four screws on the headlight buckets that are holding in our headlight. So, now what I'm gonna do is just feed this harness through before we install our light just to make sure that that's out of the way. So, what I'm gonna actually do is clip this into our turn signal. But first, we're gonna install our lights. So, we're just gonna plug on this in so then we can put it into place. Take our retainer ring and align that up. There you go. Now, you can either use the new hardware or your factory hardware, and we're gonna reinstall those screws. Now, you're gonna do the same thing on the other side. Now, we can go ahead and wire up our halos. Now, you are provided with four vampire clips that we're going to clip into our daytime running lights in our turn signal wiring harness. They're gonna have the three wires on your turn signal wiring harness. You'll have your black or ground, your middle white wire for the daytime running lights, and then your last wire is gonna be your actual amber turn signal. Now, we are going to take our positive wire and wire that into our daytime running lights, which, on the driver's side, will be the white wire with the green trace. So, we're gonna take our vampire clip, put our wire inside up there, grab our white wire with the green trace, put that inside of our vampire clip. Makes sure that it is underneath the teeth. Once both wires are in there, we can clamp down on that metal piece. That's gonna puncture that wire there, then we can close this up and move on to our negative wire. So, same thing goes for your groundSo, after those are wired in, there is a piece of 3M tape on the back here. We can peel that off and stick that in the nearest location, that up and out of the way. And then what you can do from then is just tuck your wiring. Now, we're gonna do the same thing on the other side. However, the passenger side is gonna be a little bit different. You do have different traces or different color traces in your wiring harness, so we're gonna use the white wire with the orange trace or brown trace. So, just like before, we're just gonna lay this here and reconnect our turn signals. All right. So, now we can line up our bottom pins. Just a little bit of a tap and then we can line up our top pins and reinstall our pop clips. Now we can just line all of our holes up on the top and reinstall our pop clips. Easy enough. Then, we can close up our hood. So, that's gonna wrap it up for my review and install. Make sure you like and subscribe. And for more videos like this, keep it right here at extremeterrain.com.
