Hey, guys. So today we're checking out the Raxiom JL Style LED Tail Lights, fitting all 2007 to 2018 JK Wranglers. So if you're a fan of the JL tail lights and you're looking for an upgraded replacement to your factory JK tail lights, these are gonna be a great choice to take a look into. So as you can tell, these are going to mimic the styling of the JL's LED package with the bold red lens. You're also getting a fiber optic LED on the outer border of these tail lights and you're also getting that center LED in the middle for a backup light. Now, these are also going to be LED as it says in the name. So in comparison to your factory tail light, these are going to be a lot brighter, make you more noticeable on the road to other drivers, and they're also going to help you out with rear visibility while you're backing up if you are looking for some extra lighting performance out of the back end of your JK. Not to mention, these are just going to give an overall modernized look and feel to the back-end of the Wrangler and it's definitely a big step up from the factory tail lights, giving it a more modernized approach.Now, with that being said, these are gonna come in at roughly $300, which puts this at a very average price point for LED tail lights on the page. Now, what I really like about these in comparison to some other choices is the fact that this is going to keep a more traditional style while still looking very upgraded and being very functional in the meantime. Now, other options may take more of an aftermarket style approach. They may have multiple LEDs and multiple reflectors inside the tail light itself. They may come with a smoked lens or even a clear lens with a chrome housing or a black housing. So it really comes down to your personal preference in how the actual tail light is set up. However, if you are a fan of a more traditional style like a red lens like this or you're looking for some extra stylings, some custom styling, and a more modernized look with better lighting performance, this is going to be an incredible choice to take a look at.So as far as install is concerned, I'm gonna give this a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. Everything is completely plug and play. You're gonna need some very basic handles and probably 30 minutes worth of your time to get the job done. So speaking of the install, let's jump into that now. The tools that I used for my install were a drill with a Phillips head bit.So our first step to removing our tail light is to remove the two Phillips head screws on the inside of our tail light. I'm gonna be using a Phillips head bit and my drill. You could also use a Phillips head screwdriver. Now, we only need to remove these two inner screws. The two outer screws are just holding the lens to the housing. Once those are removed, we're gonna put those to the side, we need to reuse those for our new tail light, but we can pull our factory one out of place and we can press down on that and unplug it.Now, before we plug in our new tail light, what we need to do is mount up our resistor. There is 3M tape on here, so I'm just gonna pull off the backing for that. And we can stick it to the inside of our tub here. Just pick a good spot and make sure that it's clean so it stays out of the way and sticks onto the side there. Then we can take our factory connector, plug that in. Everything is plug and play. Make sure that that clicks. Wiggle that into place. We can take our factory hardware and we can thread that in and tighten it up with that Phillips head screwdriver, or the Philips head bit. Now, you wanna make sure not to over-tighten this, this lens is plastic and it will crack if you tighten it down too much. Then we can repeat that process on the other side.So before we hop into the install of the second tail light, I do wanna stop down and show you guys a little comparison, some of the similarities and differences between our new set of tail lights and our factory ones. Now, as you can see, this is going to be a pretty big upgrade. However, they're going to keep the general same style. So just as a brief overview of our factory tail light, we're going to have a standard black housing. We're gonna have a red reflector on the side, a standard or more traditional style red lens, then we're also going to have that white lens down at the bottom. Now, this is also going to have a halogen bulb for both the brake light and the tail light in general as well as the backup light. Now, when moving over to our new option, this is going to kind of keep the traditional approach when it comes to the red lens, the red reflector on the side, the black housing, and even that small square in the middle for the backup light, but it's going to look a lot more modernized and it's also going to function a lot better too. Now, these are going to be more or less the JL style, so that really explains why they look a lot more modernized and upgraded in comparison to the factory JK style. And these are also going to be LED. So the LED is going to be a lot brighter, it's going to help you out with better visibility while you're backing up, and it's also going to make you more noticeable on the road to other drivers, not to mention, it's just going to look a whole lot better than the factory halogen bulb. Now, overall, they do look pretty similar. However, again, this is just going to be a big step up in style and a big step up in function. And like you saw before, I do really like the fact that these are plug and play, makes it very simple to install them and just a no-fuss install. So speaking of that install, let's go ahead and install our second tail light.So that's gonna wrap it up for my review and install. Make sure you like and subscribe.
