Hi, I'm Dave from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review and installation video for the Rugged Ridge Headlight Trim in black, we also have it available in chrome, for JKs 2007 and up. I give it a one out of three wrenches on the installation difficulty guide, because it is very simple to put on. In fact, even calling it an install is a little bit pushing the limit, if you will. It should go on in less than 15 minutes, no tools, just using the included adhesive that's on there. In fact, we'll show you how to put those on.This headlight trim is going to be for anybody who wants to create a custom look on their JK 2007 and up. When you look at the front of JKs compared to older Jeeps, you'll see that the recess on the head lighting isn't differentiated. And so, it all just kind of blends in. Now, you have a way to kind of make that area pop just a little bit more, if you like the aesthetics of that older look. Now, I recommend, if your Wrangler is a dark color, you may want to consider a chrome option that we have available on our website, but for all of the other colors, black is a good choice. The construction of this headlight trim is very simple. It's heavy duty plastic. One of the things that's nice about it is that it also has UV protection right inside of the plastic. So, that will hopefully help resist any sort of fading over time. It also is going to be a good amount of scratch resistance as well. Now, in no way, shape, or form am I saying that this trim is protection near, or around, your headlight, but maybe just for some minor brush that you're driving through when you're going off roading, it may protect that area just a little bit more. But mostly, because of the heavy duty plastic, it's gonna resist those little scratches and again, protect you from the sun and fading over a short, or even a long period of time. The installation of this headlight trim could not be easier. In fact, to call it an installation isn't very fair, I'd almost call it an application, which is the reason why I give it one out of three wrenches on the installation rating for difficulty that we use here. No tools required, and it should easily take less than 15 minutes. The very first thing that I would recommend that you do, before popping this trim on, is just to take it out of the box and line it up. Make sure that it's gonna fit, that you understand the way that you want to arrange it, because once you peel off the adhesive and put it on, it's going to stay there. So, let me take you step by step. Line it up, make sure that you understand where it's going to fit into the recess of your headlight. Then, I would take isopropyl alcohol, wipe the inner recess of your headlight down, let it dry. Make sure that it is debris free. The adhesive of the headlight trim is actually going to be on the back of the unit itself. You just peel it off and then, using the guidelines that you saw earlier to make sure that it's going to fit on your JK the way that you want it to, line it up, pop it in, hold it in place for just a minute or two, and it's going to be secure. 24 hours later is when you're going to have the absolute best adhesion. This headlight trim falls just under the $50 mark, and it is one of the easiest ways to transform the look of your JK, if that's what you would like to do, especially considering the fact that there's no drilling, there's no bolting, there's no permanent changes that's going to happen to the body or to the construction of your JK. So, it's an easy way to apply this and to know that you have something that may stand out from your neighbor's Jeep. So, if you're looking to alter the look of your JK without spending a lot of money, or even doing some permanent changes, like drilling or bolting on to your rig, this is a very simple customization, just using that double sided tape, and you pop it right on to the inner recess of your headlight creating a very different look, than what you're gonna see on most other JKs that are out there. Don't forget, we do have it available in chrome, and you can check that out on our website.I'm Dave, and that is my review and installation video for the Rugged Ridge Headlight Trim in black for JKs 2007 and up. I encourage you, if you like the idea of chrome, to check it out, as well as the black, on our website at extremeterrain.com.

Easy way to break up the solid grill color
The headlight trim fit perfectly and went on flawlessly, I cant comment on how long they will last but it seems to be good quality and 3M is hard to beat for an auto adhesive.Helpful (0)

It says it will not fit special additions JKs...What is classified as "special edition"?
Hi! The Rugged Ridge Black Headlight Trim will not fit the 2016 Rubicon or Sahara or 2017 Rubicon, Sahara, Freedom Edition, Will's Wheeler, Winter and 75th Anniversary Edition.
I have a 2017 Sahara, would this fit?
No, the Rugged Ridge Headlight Trim will not work with 2016+ Saharas due to the special edition from grill that they feature.
Will this headlight trim fit with any of the Euro Headlight Guards? Item J14531?
The Rugged Ridge Black Headlight Trim will have clearance for the Rugged Ridge Euro Headlight Guards.
will this fit my 2016 jeep wrangler Sahara unlimited JK?
Do these need to be removed if you need to remove the headlights?
Yes, they would need to be removed prior to removing the headlights.
These will fit Saraha models, including your 2018 Unlimited.
Yes, this is indeed for the pair.
Unfortunately this headlight trim will not fit the JL models.
Uninstalling the Rugged Ridge Black Headlight Trim will not damage the paint underneath.
They do not fit the 16-18 Rubicons as well as special eddtion JKs.
Yes, this headlight trim will fit your Wrangler, as it is designed to fit all 07-18 JK Wranglers, excluding some special edition Wranglers.
To remove the Rugged Ridge Black Headlight Trim, we would recommend warming up the inserts, however, if excess heat is applied, it could damage the paint underneath. If that were something that you would not feel comfortable performing, we would strongly recommend using dental floss or very thin fishing line to cut the adhesive that secure the trim to the grille.
Hello, yes this will still fit if you change to the LED Headlights by Raxiom.
This item is sold as a pair.
