Hey, guys. It's Sara with extremeterrain.com and today we have a review and install of the Raxiom 9-Inch LED Headlights with Daytime Running Light and Halo and Black Housing with a Clear Lens, fitting your '18 and newer Jeep Wrangler JL. These are for the Jeep owner who wants to upgrade the look and functionality of their headlights with this projector-style option that features black styling as well as LED halos. These round 9-inch headlights feature LED halos as well as accent LEDs and feature some modern black styling. All right, so one thing I did wanna point out about these headlights is that the halo daytime running light operates separate of your factory daytime running lights, meaning you'll be able to have your halo illuminated without your daytime running lights needing to be on. These headlights are DOT and SAE compliant making them legal for on-road use. They also have a waterproof rating of IP67 meaning that they're water-resistant and they're sealed to keep out dust and moisture. They are constructed from clear polycarbonate lenses with die-cast black aluminum housings and feature white LED daytime running light halos as well as accent LEDs.So, as far as price goes, these come in at around $550 for the pair, putting them about middle of the road price-wise when compared to other options. And for your money, you are getting the functionality of a projector-style headlight with black design and LED halos. And as far as the install goes, I'm giving this one a two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. It does feature a direct bolt-up installation but will require some minor wiring in order to power those halos. All in all it can be done within one hour. So, with that said, let's check out the install. For this install, you will need an impact gun or a ratchet will work just fine. You will also need a 10-millimeter socket, a wire crimping tool, and a pop clip removal tool. All right, so the first step in our uninstall with your hood popped, we're gonna remove all the pop clips that hold on the top of your grille. Using a pop clip removal tool, go ahead and remove each of these pop clips. Repeat that for the rest of the pop clips that hold in the top of the grille.Now that all the pop clips are out of the top of your grille, we're gonna pull it straight back towards you to release the rest of the metal clips. I would start around the headlight area and then pull from the bottom. Now that your grille is removed, we can remove the headlight. Now, there's three 10 millimeter bolts that are holding it in. So, grab your 10-millimeter socket and let's get these out. All right, now with all the bolts removed, you can remove your headlight and then tilt it forward and we have to unplug this connector. All right, so before we can install our headlight, we do have to install this wiring harness. Now, this is gonna go to each headlight and this end goes to your fuse box. So, what we're gonna do is route that far end through the opening in your headlight and around to the other side of the Jeep. Now, it may be easiest and cleanest to run this wire right underneath this rad support cover here. And make sure you toss a few zip ties to keep it in place, there's a few more wires under there that you can zip tie to. And we're leaving this other connector near our other headlight.All right, now that we have this wiring harness routed, we're gonna plug it into the back of the headlight. Now, there's a tab on this connector, so line it up as best you can. Go ahead and twist this into place to lock it in place. Next up we'll be installing this ballast. This goes to the connector on the back of the headlight. So, go ahead and plug that in. Press the red tab down to lock it in place and then this other end will go to the factory connector on your Jeep. Go ahead and line that up and click it in place. Now, again, I recommend throwing a zip tie or two on this wiring just to keep it out of the way. All right, now these headlights are side specific, so make sure all of your brackets are in the proper location. Line up the tabs on the two inside brackets here and grab the 10-millimeter factory screws and get them installed. And once all of your bolts are installed, go ahead and grab your 10-millimeter socket to tighten them down. All right, so at this point, we're at the other end of the wiring harness and we're gonna get it attached to the fuse box.First thing we're gonna do is grab this open end of this wire, and we're gonna attach it to this fused piece of wire here and they've already crimped this one down. So the only thing we need to do is insert the other end. And then once that is in place, grab a wire crimping tool and then we can crimp it down. Just double-check that you have a good connection by tugging on the wire, and then we can get this installed. And once that is attached, we're gonna pop the fuse box open, you just squeeze at each side here and pull up. And the fuse that we're going for is F52, it's that yellow 20-amp fuse there, that's where they tell us to install this. And with the tool that comes with your Jeep for fuses, go ahead and grab that yellow 20 amp and pull it out. Now that we have the fuse removed, we can line it up next to our 5-amp fuse, go ahead and press it into place. Now the entire thing can go in place of that 20-amp fuse in your fuse box. Now you can replace your fuse box and run your wire back over here so we can attach the ground.All right, now at this point we have to hook up our ground wire. Now, you can attach this to anywhere that you do have a decent ground. However, we're gonna go to this nut right here. There's several other ground wires on it. So, we're gonna grab a 10-millimeter socket and remove this. Now we can slide the wire overtop and replace the factory nut. Grab your 10-millimeter socket and tighten it down. All right, now that we have our factory headlight uninstalled from our Jeep, we can check it out side by side with our new headlight here. Now, as you can see, this new headlight features a ton of aftermarket style. It features a black design with LED accents as well, just a nice upgrade from the chrome of your factory. In addition, this headlight features a projector-style lens which gets you a brighter and more focused beam of light when compared to the reflector style of your factory. So, with that said, you're gonna repeat all those steps to install your passenger side headlight. Now with both headlights installed, we can reinstall the factory grille. What we're gonna do is line up all the clips on the bottom, then line up the openings in the top and press into place.Now we can reinstall the factory pop clips in the top of the grille. All right, so that is gonna do it for the review and install these headlights. And remember, for all things JL, keep it at extremeterrain.com.
