Jeep Wrangler Axial 3″ 6-LED Cube Light – Flood Beam (1987-2019 YJ, TJ, JK & JL) Review & Install

Hey. What’s up, guys. Ryan here from extremeterrain and today I’ll
be reviewing and installing the Axial 3-inch 6 LED Cube Lights with Flood Beam. This is for the Jeep owner that’s just looking
for a very affordable option to give them some additional lighting for those nighttime
drives. It’s perfect for those of you that like to
venture out after dark whether you’re just driving down the back road or you’re hitting
those trails, as these 3-inch lights, while relatively small, pack a very powerful punch. Now, these lights are small enough so you
can basically mount them anywhere you have a good spot and they’re powerful enough to
get you through even the darkest of drives. Now, these are LED lights. Each one of these lights has 6 LEDs. These are 4-watt Cree LEDs with a high intensity. They’re gonna produce a very bright white
light that is close to 6000 Kelvin. Now, housing is made from durable aluminum. They have an acrylic lens. This is all gonna steal that up really nicely
and it’s gonna keep those internals very safe. The housing is finished off with a black powder
coating. It’s gonna add to that aggressive styling. It’s also gonna protect that aluminum from
corrosion. Now, these lights have an IP rating of 67,
making them waterproof, dirt, and dustproof and allowing you to submerge them up to 1
meter for up to 30 minutes. Now, these lights are completely bolt-on. They come with their own hardware and brackets
to install. And of course, these lights are sold individually
and by themselves. So, if you’re looking to wire them up you
will need to get a harness and a switch, but we have plenty of options to choose from on
our website. Now, currently, these lights are coming in
right around $35 on our website, making them a very affordable option and very reasonably
price when compared to other options of the same design. Now, as far as the installation goes, I’m
gonna give this a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter as you can get this
light installed in under an hour just using basic hand tools. Now, with that being said, let’s hop into
the install. Tools we use for this install: 3/8 drive ratchet,
5-millimeter Allen. So, before we get started with this installation
I wanna say one of the nice things about this light is it comes with its own little bracket. This bracket is gonna attach to the light. Since it has a hole in the bottom and comes
with hardware, you can pretty much bolt it to any flat surface that has a hole in it
or if you have an aftermarket bumper that has light tips. Now, for this particular installation, we’re
gonna be installing it on our light brackets here which don’t utilize this bracket. So, we don’t need it. So, with that being said, we’re gonna install
some of the hardware in this light and we’re gonna get this light bolted onto this mount. So, using the hardware provided we have some
nuts that we need to drop down into these lights. You have these little captured seats, that’s
gonna hold the nuts in place while we thread the bolts that they provide us with through
the outside. So, as you can see down here, well most likely
you can see down here, we got that nut situated in there. It’s gonna have flange on it. We want that to face towards the outside of
the light. We’re gonna try to keep that in place while
we get the other side in. These are pretty tricky to do, so you could
probably use a magnet that would help you get these in and out. So, what we wanna do is we want to get the
bracket in between this nut and this outside flange. So, we’re gonna try to do that while we get
this on to the bracket and then we’ll get these bolts installed without dropping these
nuts out of it. So then, whether you’re using aftermarket
brackets like this or if you’re using the brackets that come with it, you need to slide
those in between the nuts and that outside flange. And then, once we get that in we’re gonna
push our little Allen head bolts that they gave us in through the outside and we’re gonna
get this thing tightened up. Get these started, then we’ll go get a wrench
and we’ll tighten these down. Now to tighten up these little Allen headed
bolts we’re gonna use a 5-millimeter Allen key. I’m just gonna go ahead and snug these up. So, that’s gonna cover the installation of
the light. Now, this light, they just come as individual
lights and they have this little pigtail. So, you’ll need to get a harness and a switch. We offer many options on the website and you
could check those out. For this particular install, I’m gonna wire
this thing up really briefly just to show you what this looks like when it’s on. So, we got this whole thing wired up, so I’m
gonna show you what it looks like. So, that’s gonna wrap it up for my review
and installation. For more videos and products like this, check
