    Review & Install Video

    Hey, guys. Adam here with americantrucks.com. And today, we're taking a closer look at and installing the Axial Black Projector Style Headlights with a DRL Lightbar available for the '09 to '14 F-150 without factory HIDs. If your F-150 did not come with HID headlights off the factory line, you might be looking to upgrade your front end by switching out those traditional, old, really boring front headlights for something a lot brighter, more attractive with a light bar that honestly is gonna make your front end look a lot more modern. Now these headlights here are a complete change in design from head to toe. You're swapping out the traditional chrome reflective interior styling with a black interior housing. You've got a daytime running light, a DRL light bar running around that projector-style headlight bulb now and it's just really gonna look a whole lot cleaner. In addition to that, you're gonna get a few other extra features, accents. Your amber light is keeping the same general location, just a slightly tweaked design. Now at the end of the day, guys, this is for the guys out there who aren't looking to blow big bucks on a crazy new headlight and also for guys who don't want to do any splicing or custom wiring. This is just gonna be a very simple plug and play, you're popping out the old headlights which are just held on by three bolts and you're gonna throw these guys in, it should take you no longer than 30 minutes. For the pair of headlights you see here, you're gonna be spending right around the $450 mark. Install is gonna get one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, it literally could not be any easier. Again, it's gonna take you about 30 minutes. The only tool you'll need is an impact gun, a 10-millimeter socket, and I'd recommend having an extension on deck but it's not required. I'm gonna take you through every step of the process, what do you say we get started? Tools used in this install include an impact gun or a ratchet, it's recommended to have an extension on deck as well as a 10-millimeter socket. Now, guys, step one, of course, is pop your hood, grille and hood goes with it. So what we're gonna do here is grab our extension and impact gun and a 10-millimeter socket, deep or short, does not matter. We're gonna remove the two 10-millimeter bolts from up top, then we're gonna pull back this flap here and remove one more 10-millimeter. From there we should be able to pull our headlight out of place. So grab those, take these off. All right, from here we're gonna pull back this flap, we got one more right here, this is where I use that extension. All right, from here we got all three bolts out of the way. That's really all you have to remove, just pull straight back on the headlight. You might have to apply a little bit of force. There are some clips holding it in here but pull straight back and it'll come out. From here what we're gonna do is just pinch and disconnect those factory harnesses from the bulbs. Now we can set the factory headlight aside. All right, so we've got our factory headlight off of the passenger side of our F-150 here behind me, it's on the table next to our Axial projector option. And I want to take you through some of the similarities but mainly the differences between the two and really this is a completely revamped headlight. You're not only going from the factory incandescent bulbs, you're switching over to that projector-style bulb and really you're adding a lot of accents to it. Now the projector-style you're seeing right in the middle of the interior design here which looks completely different than the factory one. This is very traditional, very stock, pretty boring, this is gonna be a lot more modern and aggressive. And the modern aspect of it, in my personal opinion, is really accentuated by that DRL light bar around that projector-style bulb. This is thicker than a lot of the aftermarket DRL bulbs you'll see it in the category or on the market which makes it a little more unique, I'd say. And honestly, I kinda like it. I like that this is a thicker DRL wrapping around the edges here. I think it looks very modern, very updated, not like the factory lighting here. You're also getting, of course, the turn signal at the bottom and the amber. You're getting the amber reflectors on the side for the turn signals as well. So all in all that keeps some placement for some of those reflectors and turn signal in the amber color but overall the design and shape of most aspects are completely different. The interior, of course, is black, the lens on the outside is that polycarbonate lens that is clear. You're not hindering or removing any of that lighting output, clear lens, completely crystal clear, just like your factory one, scratch-resistant, things like that. The interior is made from the same quality materials as well. The black interior just gives you a more, you know, stealthy look at the front end. All in all, very updated, very moderate. What we want to do is flip this guy around, quickly show you the back here. The back, as you can see, is very different. You're using plug and play connectors on your Axial and those are just gonna plug right into the factory harness still on the vehicle. You're not reusing any of the old stuff, completely new tech, really built-in, already spliced, no wiring required, so what we're gonna do is toss this guy aside, set this up and just plug her in. All right, now for the installation here, we're just gonna rest the face gently down on that trim panel. Now I know from the factory you have three connectors. On your new headlight, two of those connectors have been spliced into one. Now, this is gonna go straight into this brown-style connector and it snaps right in together. On your factory headlight, this would have connected down at the bottom, but as you can see it's going into one, so this isn't gonna be used. What you're gonna do is take that other connector and go straight to the other harness, plugs right in, good to go. Now what I like to do is just rest this up, test your lights before you completely install the headlight. Once you know everything works, we'll be good to finish the install. So for now, we're just gonna set this guy up just like that and test out our lights. All right, so from here we know our lights work, we're gonna set this into place, guiding that back and clicking it in. You want to make sure the left side here, both sides going into the fender are completely set. All right, now I just like to put the factory bolts in by hand just to hold their place so I know everything is lined up properly, and one back down here. Now you can grab your extension and your 10-millimeter and tighten these guys down. Now you can repeat for the other side. Well, guys, that's gonna wrap up my quick overview and install of the Axial Black Projector DRL Headlights available for the '09 to '14 F-150 without factory HIDs. And if you want your pair, you can get yours right here at americantrucks.com.

        5 Top Rated Questions

        Can you switch the projector bulb to led later on

        • Yes, the bulbs in these Axial Black Projector Headlights could be switched out with H7 LED bulbs.

        Helpful (20)

        I bought these headlights and I love them! I want to switch to H7 LED Headlight Bulbs but I am having problems finding replacement bulbs that actually fit into the opening of the headlight. Do you sell or recommend any LED Headlight Bulbs that will fit these Headlights?

        • So as long as you are installing H7 bulbs they will fit and work with this housing.

        Helpful (11)

        Is the DRL light bar supposed to function as the daytime running light? I recently installed these and the projector lamp is the light that is on while the truck is in gear. Thanks.

        • The Axial Black Projector Headlights Utilize a light bar that imitates later model LED DRL Light bars in the headlights. This light bar is typically wired up to the parking lights, but can be wired up any way the end user wishes to allow these to work independently switched, as DRL's, with the parking lights, or any number of ways, as your wiring knowledge will be the only real limit. If your truck came OEM equipped with DRL's, then the main headlamp will still come on with the key, as it was designed to at the Factory.

        how do i know if i have a HID light factory on my truck

        • The easiest way to know if you have HID lighting, would be to contact your Ford dealership with your VIN, and they could say for sure. If you open your hood, you could identify if you have HID lighting, as there would be a small box wired to the headlight, as that would be the HID ballast. Sometimes the Ballast can be hidden, so contacting Ford would be best.

        What type of bulb fits the blinker?

        • The Axial Black Projector Headlights should utilize a 3157NA bulb for the turn signals.

            Very Cool Upgrade! with one caveat

            Man I love the way these look! Super easy install and the aiming is fairly spot on from the get go. The caveat is the included H7 bulbs are pretty poor so upgrading is a must. These housings are shutter activated which is how they get away using a single H7 bulb for both low and high beam. On high the shutter activates to expose more of the beam pattern is all. hopefully my video will attach. As others may have mentioned these are Spyders. One of the best most striking visual upgrades for your F150.

            Not quite as advertised

            They are easy enough to install and it does take a little time to adjust the lights but the problem I have with these is that they are not nearly as bright as factory. And they have a terrible fit on the passenger side. The driver side fit ok for an aftermarket part but the passenger side is just embarrassing how bad of a fit it has. Everything looks fine from a far but not so much up close. The last problem I had was moisture inside the lens a day after installation. I had to go back through and add some duct seal around all the light penetration to solve this. If I could do it again I would not buy these and would probably go a different route.

            Look great. Illuminate less great.

            Install was pretty easy. Removing stock headlights was the most difficult part. Took me probably 45 minutes if that. Adjusting them is a pain though. There is no easily available adjustment screw that I found to adjust them while installed. So you have to pop them out, adjust, repeat until you get where you want to be with them. In addition the pre-installed bulbs I got don't illuminate worth a darn. Downroad view is poor. I have literally missed an exit on my way to work that wasn't well illuminated because I couldn't tell where the lane started until too late. I have read someone else's review that installing better bulbs didn't help. I wonder if his needed adjusted. Considering LED installation instead. They look wicked during the day, bit otherwise are questionable out of the box.

            Looks absolutely amazing

            These headlights give the vehicle a completely different look, making it look meaner and tougher. Not only are the looks good, but the light output is great as well. The only thing that i do not like about these headlights is the color of the light. Installation was super easy, with only a few screws and popping the head lights in and out it took about 20 min total to take out the old lights and put in the new ones.
