Jake: Jake here for American Muscle, and today, I'm taking a look at the Axial Front & Rear LED Side Marker Lights fitting 2018 and newer Challenger Widebodies. Now, the widebody Challenger looks pretty mean right off the showroom floor, but if you're looking to kick it up a notch, really lean into that aggressive stealthy type of look, then these are gonna be for you. Not only do they pack a nice visual punch, but they also include some seriously upgraded lighting elements all for a really low price. It's sure to make a cool improvement to your Challenger.While of course looks are important, I think it's worth starting off talking about the actual lighting portion here. Now, these come with SMD LED strips inside to give you a sharp, clean line of light all the way through the lens. So there's no single point of light like there would be with your factory incandescent bulbs, and the whole thing here from one end to the other gets lit up. And since these are LEDs, they're gonna have a much longer lifespan than the factory incandescent bulbs, they're also gonna be brighter, and even with these smoked lenses, they're gonna have a big impact on overall visibility. There's really no way to miss them. And of course, there's also this smoked lens that we need to talk about. And as you can tell by now, these are pretty much blacked out. They're about as dark as you can go. We're still gonna be able to see stuff. And if you've got a darker color on your Challenger, these are gonna blend in really nicely and they'll provide good contrast if you've got a brighter color as well. So no matter what kind of paint color you got on your car, these are gonna look pretty cool.The construction here is all OEM Grade ABS plastic for the housing, so they're strong and lightweight. And you've got that standard polycarbonate material on the outside for the lenses in that smoked color, of course, too. And they're also weather-sealed to keep out dirt and moisture and protect the electronics inside. They come ready to go with the clips that you need already installed and a place to plug them in. But we'll touch on that in a moment.Pricing for the full set here is gonna come in at just about $100, making this a really affordable modification. There aren't a lot of choices out there in this category for the widebody cars because you need this sort of grooved or kinked type of light here. But this is still a mod that can fit any budget, and I am a big fan of the $100 or less modifications, especially when they provide both an aesthetic and functional improvement like these do. So, for the price, I really don't think you can go wrong.Installation gets a one out of three on our difficulty meter and it should only take you about 20 minutes to get these on your car. Now like I alluded to earlier, these are a totally plug-and-play install. They utilize the factory connectors and they snap in in the same places as well. So you don't have to do any type of wiring or any kind of modification at all to your car. Just pop out your old ones and put these in their place. And to show you that process now, let's go ahead and throw it over to one of our AM customers.Man: Today, I'm gonna be installing the Axial Side Markers for a widebody Challenger, and the tools I'm gonna using is a 8-millimeter ratchet with an extension, flathead screwdriver, and some varying pry bars, plastic so you don't damage your paint. You're gonna just take your finger, give her a little push, and just pop the place there. The side with the harness just has, like, a little notch in it, so you're gonna need to slide it towards the front of your car to get it out. You pull it from the other side, just give her a little wiggle, and she pops free.All right, now that you have it popped free, you're just gonna take it, slide this little red clip up right here. After you pull this red tab up, there's a little notch down there with a black plastic piece pulling it out, and you just literally have to pull up off of it to get it to release instead of doing...I was just struggling with, but, yeah, and that's how you replace it. That's how you remove it. I mean, it's pretty straightforward here. Just take it in, line up the clip, push it on, and push this red tab down, make sure it locks it. So what we're gonna do is, the one that's got this little groove right there, take it and slide it onto the plastic. So you're gonna want to start in the front and slide it towards the back at a angle. It'll be kind of held into place, and then take your plastic off and it's in.For your front passenger side marker, we're actually gonna come through the top. You're gonna go by your washer fluid canister here. There's the rear of the marker. Now that I showed you where the clip is, I'm just gonna reach my hand. I can't really give you a video of me releasing that clip because I can't get the camera right down in there, but you can just kind of feel for it. By doing the back one's first, you got a pretty good idea of what you're feeling for and what you're doing. That's why I did the rears first myself. I'm just feeling for that angled piece. It's towards the front that you have to push to get marker to release from the bumper. And I give it a little bit more pressure, it feels like, to push it out to release. All right, grab a hold of it the best you can. This one's a little bit tighter. And just slide it forward just like all the other ones we've done. Slide that red tab up just like that. This time, I just used this driver because it would give me a better... And now we going to remove our plastic. Get down, line up our clip, there's the snap, push your...I don't know the actual term for it, but that little red pin that locks it on there. Then we're gonna put the rear in first at a angle. Get to notch into that part of the bumper. There we go. I'm gonna turn the car on. I'm not turning it on, but turn the lights on. Much brighter.Moving on to the driver's side front-side marker. We're gonna actually have to remove our airbox and air filter. So, I saved the best for last. Yeah, my air filter is dirty, so... I had this disconnected. So, it was right here, just kind of had to force it off. Then loosen the hose clamp. Now, just gave it a little bend. There we go. So, I'm gonna reach my arm in that slot there, we'll go feeling around for the blinker clip [SP] or the side marker clip and I feel it. It's in the front. Just give it a little push with your finger, pops it out. Pop it out from reaching down through the top. We're just gonna grab it right in the front like a little... Oh, that one slid out probably the easiest. Look at that. See the clip and the red release tab? I'll just get that unpulled, and it should be a free part.Our harness, line up in tabs on the clips, and the side marker, push it together till you hear that click, push down the locking right in between. Right now, we're gonna put our air filter back in our air box. Definitely pay more attention to how it came out. Push this hose right here. This hose right here needs to get pushed back in as well and fed through using a flat screwdriver just to tighten the hose clamp back up.Jake: All that about wraps it up here for our review and install of the Axial Front & Rear LED Side Marker Lights fitting 2018 and newer Challenger Widebodies.
