Review & Install Video
The Axial Chrome Projector Headlights with LED DRLs are available for any 2015 or newer F-150 equipped with halogen headlights from the factory. These are for the guys out there who are looking to stay a lot closer to the factory styling, but who wanna take the DRL light one step farther, and who want more of a flashy and eye-catching appearance with the chrome interior housing. The installation for these was made super easy thanks to Axial's Plug-N-Play Wiring Harness, so expect one out outta three wrenches on our difficulty meter, which I'll walk you through later on.
Now, honestly, I am a pretty big fan of the factory F-150 headlights on the newest generation. So, before these headlights, I would have probably told you that there isn't an aftermarket light that does the job better than stock. These incorporate that same idea for the DRLs, or daytime running light design, and just hook it to a whole other level.
These DRLs actually wrap around the entire border of the light, giving you the same bright white light in the day and at night, but with a more aggressive appearance. In addition to the change in DRLs, the housing is all chromed out to give you a more in your face look, which obviously isn't gonna be for everybody, but there are other options available.
The lens itself is actually clear, but the interior is extremely shiny and flashy, which, like I said, not for everybody, but if you're into this sorta styling and want the headlights to blend in with other chrome accents, then you might have to check this out because it's definitely for you. If you're not a fan of the smoked or tinted lens because of the loss of visibility, then these are a perfect alternative, thanks to the clear exterior and reflective chrome interior.
With all that in mind, these are currently only one of two aftermarket headlights offered on the site, both of which are the same axials, only the other option is black instead of chrome for those who like the stealthier appearance. Both designs are priced right around the $650 mark, which I'll admit is a good chunk of change for some headlights. But, as I mentioned earlier, I think these are absolutely the best looking headlight designs I've seen thus far, and the reviews seem to back me up on this, which you can check for yourself on the product page. Keep in mind, these are only offered currently for the F-150s that come with halogen lights from the factory, because otherwise, the wiring harness just would not match up.
The insulation is extremely straightforward and no doubt getting one outta three wrenches on our difficulty meter, and it really shouldn't take any longer than about an hour or so, give or take. You wanna have a ratchet with a 7-millimeter, 8-millimeter, and 10-millimeter socket on hand, as well as an extension, before you get started.
You need to first pop open the hood and remove the pushpin tab holding on the headlight trim, followed by the 2 10-millimeter bolts at the top of the housing. Using a seven-millimeter socket, remove the two bolts on the other side of the trim piece, which you can find in the front wheel well, then pull the trim piece off at each end. Switch back over to the 10-millimeter socket and remove the lower black cover underneath the headlight trim you just removed.
There are several bolts here, spread all across the black cover, one of which is pretty deep, so you might wanna break out an extension to make it easier, then removing the panel. The last one is an eight-millimeter bolt holding on the headlight bracket to the side black panel. From here, you can remove the entire headlight and disconnect the wiring harness before pulling it too far away, so you don't rip them out.
Transfer over your corner marker lights and harness to the axial replacement and mount the new headlight into place on your truck. After you connect the wiring harnesses and plug everything into the stock connectors, you can test the lights to make sure everything is set.
From here, you can use the eight-millimeter bracket bolt you just removed to keep it in place. Then put the black bottom panel on next and replace all 10-millimeter bolts there to secure it. Put the headlight trim back on and bolt down the two seven-millimeter bolts to the inside of the wheel well, and replace the plastic pushpins on the top of the hood. The 2 10-millimeter bolts will finish off the job at the top of the headlight, and then you're good to repeat for the opposite side. You're good to go.
That just about does it, so if you're the owner of a 2015 or newer F-150 with factory halogen headlights, you might wanna check out the Axial Chrome Projector Headlights with LED DRLs, which are available right here at americantrucks.com.
