Jeep Wrangler Axial LED Fog Lights (2007-2018 JK) Review & Install

LED lighting is definitely preferred for brighter,
cleaner, and longer lasting lights. These Axial LED Fog Lights will be the most
affordable option for ’07-’18 JK owner looking to upgrade their front-end lighting. These will match perfectly with any LED headlights
and compliment that LED performance overall. I would like to mention that these will not
fit the 10th anniversary front bumper or any special edition Rubicon bumper and these are
only designed for bumpers that accept the factory fog lights. Nonetheless, the install is super easy at
one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter and I’ll show you how to do that in
just a minute. Like most LEDs on the market, these will feature
a high output Cree LED, and these lights in particular will produce about 1,020 lumens. For four-inch LED fog lights, that’s pretty
impressive. And like I mentioned, these will compliment
any other LEDs’ performance. The color temperature’s on the cool white-end
of the scale, 6000 K compared to the stock halogen which is roughly 3000 K. These will not only look at a lot cleaner
than the stock halogens, but they will last a lot longer as well at about 50,000 hours. The housing will be pretty tough too with
a polycarbonate lens that will be rigid enough to take a hit and a black die-cast aluminum
housing. These are also IP65 rated, so they’ll be protected
against any water. However, this is not the highest IP rating,
so these won’t last very long when immersed which shouldn’t be a problem for where they
sit. Like I mentioned, these will be your most
affordable option at right around $60 and you really can’t beat it for what you’re getting
here. To put it into perspective, a stock replacement
will be anywhere from $40 to $60 and you’re getting two of these upgraded LEDs for the
same price as one stock replacement. These won’t be the best LED fog lights that
we offer when you’re looking at overall quality, but these will still get the job done when
it comes to lighting performance, a very strong housing, and a very long lifespan. Like I mentioned, these will be a one out
of three wrenches on the install. And now, we can head over to the shop and
I’ll show you how to put these in. So now that we’re in the shop, we can start
our install. So first, we have to take off our bumper just
to make it a little bit easier for us. Before we move our bumper, we have to remove
our splash guard in order to access the bolts on our bumper. So, we have a trim removal tool. We’re just going to remove the clips. Now, we can go ahead and remove the four nuts
on either side that are holding on the bumper. We’re going to need an 18-millimeter-deep
socket. I recommend an extension for this and a ratchet,
and I recommend a lot of muscle for this one in particular. Now, you will have to remove this driver’s
side inner nut from the top because of the vacuum pump that is located right here. After the eight nuts are removed on the studs
for the bumper, we can tilt the bumper back and disconnect our fog lights. They might be held down by clips on the bumper. You can just pull those out. Now that we have our bumper off, we can swap
over our fog lights. So, these are held in by four Phillips-head
screws. We’re just going to take a Phillips-head screwdriver
and remove that. And you want to keep the factory hardware,
because we will be reusing those with the new fog lights. After the fog lights are disconnected, you
can go ahead and remove them. Now, we can install our new fog lights. And before installing them, I just wanted
to point out you do have an adjuster screw on the back that will tilt the fog light up
and down if you ever have to adjust them in the future, but we can just install them just
as the stock ones came out. They’ll fit in perfectly and you can just
take your screws and screw those back in. It’s usually easiest to just put the screws
in there and adjust them and you start to tighten them down. Now, we can reinstall our bumper the same
way it came off, by putting the studs in, and we can tilt this back and connect our
wiring harnesses to our stock wiring harness. So now that the fog lights are plugged in,
we can resecure our bumper down. Now, we can reinstall our splash guard with
the original hardware. After your splash guard is reattached, you’re
all set to go. That’s it for my review and install on the
Axial LED Fog Lights. For more videos like this, keep it right here

  2. Ryan doesn't have to worry about messing up his nails….

  3. Any links on how to adjust fog light . Mine are aimed way too high and I was hoping to not have to remove the bumper to do so as that makes it more difficult to adjust and get it right the first time

  4. Removes the bumper, completes the installation, then reinstalls the bumper … all the while wearing jewelry and not destroying her nails . Meredith, you ROCK!
