      Video Review & Installation

      Justin: If you're a big fan of the Morimoto brand, you love their quality, but can't justify the higher price point of some of their top-shelf options, well, then you might wanna check out the Morimoto XB hybrids that we're talking about here today for your '09 to 14 F-150 at home. Now, the hybrids will feature that black housing topped off with a clear lens, along with the daytime LED running lights in modern projectors offer right around that low $900 price point. So, the hybrid here from Morimoto is again, a great option for truck owners who really want a high-quality light loaded with some very cool accent lighting, but don't wanna drop the 1,500 plus dollars on their top-of-the-line offering.Now, the hybrid gets its name because it's gonna combine some of the more modern LED lighting with a little tiny bit of factory incandescent lighting, hence that hybrid name. And that is ultimately gonna help keep the price point a little bit more reasonable with these particular options. But make no mistake about it here, guys, the majority of your lighting with the hybrids is LED powered, including both your high and low beams, which will be loaded into your modern projectors making for a real sharp look. Now, on top of the LED high and lows, the hybrids also deliver the very cool white daytime running lights going around the headlight here that will illuminate along with your parking lights or headlights.Now, these LEDs do feature the same OSRAM technology found in the more expensive Morimoto options, and they will shine at a 5,000 color K temperature, which is that real bright white with maybe just the absolute smallest touch of blue. Now, the lone bit of incandescent lighting here will be a single bulb that will be your turn signal, which does get transferred over from your factory headlights. And that's pretty much it guys. And honestly, if you wanted to use this as an opportunity to upgrade that to an LED option, probably not a bad idea. Now, all of that lighting is gonna be loaded into your ABS black housing here, topped off with a really nice crystal clear lens. And to me, these things are just really given off that Gen 2 raptor flare or styling that as a former Gen 2 owner, I really love. Now, the hybrids will meet and even exceed all DOT and SAE requirements, making them legal for use in all 50 states.And by the way, are backed by the same exact five-year warranty as the more expensive Morimoto option, which again, is impressive. It shows that Morimoto actually stands behind their more entry-level offerings. But now let's get into the install here, guys. And site's gonna call this one strong one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. And I'd say maybe an hour or so to complete from start to finish. But now to give you a better idea of how this will all go down on your truck at home, feel free to check out this detailed walkthrough and tool breakdown from an AT customer.Man: So, the required tools for this job is a 10-millimeter socket or open-box wrench will work, needle-nose pliers, and a Phillip screwdriver. I do recommend maybe having some gloves and some safety glasses and some dielectric grease would be helpful.Now, I've already installed the driver's side headlight here, and we're gonna take you step by step and remove this one and show you how to remove it and install the new one. So, these Morimoto lights have a true DRL function, daytime running light. And so, what is necessary to make that function properly is a wire that comes in the kit and a connection, a harness that you simply lay out along here and you're gonna plug into the existing fuse box. Now, I'll show you specifically what fuse to plug into, and then you wanna run the short end to the passenger's side and then come back with the longer end to the driver's side. We'll show you that now.So, again, with this particular Ford, it's a 2011 F-150. And in the fuse box located in the food compartment, the engine compartment was a 10-amp fuse. That's number 77 in this particular model. And I looked that up in the manual and it's for the power control module. It simply tells the truck that there's power. And you're gonna take this harness that comes in the Morimoto kit and plug it right in and remove the 10-millimeter amp fuse and plug the harness that has its own fuse back into the harness. And run to wire neatly into the fuse box and out through the opening. Now, in this particular model, the opening was on the left, it may be on the right on your truck, but you wanna run it neatly so that you can easily close the top.So, this is the DRL wiring harness that comes out of the fuse box and it needs to be mapped and wired down where the light's gonna be the connections. But the first step we have to do in order to remove the existing light is to take out this plastic grommet here with your Phillips head screwdriver. And if you have a pryer tool, that's fine. You can also use a flathead screwdriver. Now, I've taken this out before, so it's got a rip it. But you just take the screwed-out plastic, just lean the skirt down out of the way. And on your particular model, there could be a couple of other...these plastic grommets that you might have to pull out, but it's pretty simple. You can just use a flathead screwdriver and your Phillip screwdriver to remove them.Now, the next step is we're gonna take out these three bolts. These are 10 millimeters, two here, and one here. That's why we had to remove the rubber skirt to get to this one here. So, I'll show you that now. So, the two top 10-millimeter bolts, we're gonna remove them. Again, I'm just working with a piece of ABS plastic here, so it shouldn't be on too tight and it should come right out, given hand loose on each side.So, now that all three of those bolts have been removed, the whole assembly will come out. This is now loose and you just wanna loosen it up slightly. And then there are two pins in the backside here that are just pins that you just pull straight out. The key is to pull it straight out. If you pull at the left or the right, it's gonna give resistance, so you wanna pull it straight out. So, what you can do is you can take a plastic trim tool and come to the backside of it like this. Make sure you use plastic, never metal onto the paint on your truck. And just loosen this up a bit. So, this allows it to come forward and slight bit so you can get your fingers in there. And then once you have that loosened a bit, grab it firmly here. And you wanna get some force. But if you pull straight out and give it a little wiggle, you'll hear it pop out and it will come out. And here are the pins that I was describing, one here and one here. And they just line up with the holes in the body of the truck. And as you get to pull it straight out, it'll come right out.So, now that we've exposed the whole assembly and we've got to the wiring harness, we're gonna simply twist and remove the existing light connections. Carefully set them down. And now you can put this to the side and you no longer need this stock headlight assembly. So, this is your stock turn signal, the amber turn signal bulb. As I mentioned in the beginning, I'm gonna make an upgrade here because this is the hybrid Morimoto that uses this stock amber bulb. You can certainly use it, but I'm gonna go ahead and just swap it out to an LED bulb that I bought at a local auto store. And then, like I said, I would recommend on all the metal connections just using a little bit of some dielectric grease on the connections and swap that bulb out. Same thing with this one, press down on the clip, and it should pop right out. Now, you've got that end exposed. Again, I put some dielectric grease in here, and then we'll show you how the plug-and-play connection works.So, now that we have the wire connector for the DRL from the fuse box wired down into here, I simply followed the existing wiring harness that was already in the engine bay. And now we have our connectors here and it's a true plug-and-play application. So, simply take the existing connectors, careful enough to drop your money, and line them up. And do make sure these go in all the way. So make sure you hear that snap and that push and you have a good connection. You can't really make a mistake here. They only go in one way. Just make sure they're all the way and you hear that connection and that click. This is the new DRL. I'm sorry, I keep calling it DRL, daytime running light connector, which is now in. So, now we have all good connections. The light is ready to go back in with the prongs. We simply are gonna line up the housing. We have to use the existing turn signal. We're gonna put that in here. That's an LED that I changed it out to an LED. You can use the halogen bulb if you want to. You put it in and line up the grooves. Again, it only goes in one way. Light up the grooves and then twist.Now that we have the wiring harness completely connected, including the turn signal, I'm gonna gently line this up so that we can secure the housing. Put it down in here, in the grooves, line up the holes from top to the bottom. It's pretty simple once you get it lined up. Once you have it lined up, put some slight pressure on it and it'll slide it back in with the pins. Make sure you have a good alignment. Check your holes for your 10-millimeter bolts. They appear to be okay. So, for the daytime running light harness, we're replugging the fuse box. This is where I'd use the needle-nose pliers to pull out the 10-amp fuse. That's number 77 in this particular model, which again, is a 2011. And then you just plug the sub-harness back into that existing spot where it has its own fuse and wire it correctly. Close the box.So. now that we've got our assembly in here, we're gonna reinstall the three 10-millimeter bolts. I've put them in here loosely. I've tested the light. The light works. I'll show you that in a minute. So, now we can go ahead and secure these down tightly. Again, don't over torque this, it's just a piece of plastic. Just one firm hand tighten, pull the housing in, and that's pretty much all that's needed there. And we're gonna go ahead and put your skirt back with the small screw and top rivet that you took out. So, now I have the assembly totally in, I've put the skirt back, I'm just gonna make the job a little neater by using the optional wire ties just to secure the wire along the existing stock wire harness that runs through the battery. The wire ran...the wire along the fuse box just to tuck it in underneath here for a neat application and job. Just keep it out of the way.Justin: So, if you're looking for a high-quality set of headlights for your '09 to 14 F-150, be sure to check out the hybrids for Morimoto right here at americantrucks.com.
