Quality, Look, Easy(ish) Install
This kit is a very solid product from Raxiom. It includes two LED bulbs and two small ballasts (exactly as pictured); all of the metal components look and feel to be aluminum. The brightness is absolutely an upgrade from the stock fog lights and the color is very white, nearly identical to the LED headlights on my other vehicle.
Installation is not quite as straightforward as indicated by the review video on the AM website. For one, access to the fog lamps requires a little more Twister action than the video indicates. This isn't a big deal but does require using caution not to place any stress on the LED bulb itself when placing into the fog lamp housing.
More challenging is managing the ballast. Once you install the bulbs, the ballast and a bit of spare wire are just sort of hanging there behind the front bumper. On my '17 XL with the chrome appearance package there just happens to be a clear area on the rear of the lower front bumper that is almost exactly the size of the ballast. Luckily, the ballasts are designed to be fastened down with at hole at each corner. I drilled tiny (!) guide holes and used tiny (!) sheet metal screws to secure the ballast against the bumper. I then used a (loose) twist tie to manage the excess wire. In total this only added another 15 minutes to the install, taking me up to 30 minutes.
Overall, this is a high quality product that is easy to install and looks great (photo uploaded separately). For maximum product life and peace of mind, I recommend securing the ballasts as described above.
