Review & Installation Video

Hey guys, this is Heather from, and I’m taking a look at the smoked LED third brake light for the 05-09 Mustangs. If you’ve ever thought about tinting your existing brake light but don’t want to deal with messy spray cans, or tint films that can wrinkle, this is the great simple alternative. This smoked LED third brake light will directly replace the factory third brake light on all 05-09 Mustangs. Not only will this light improve the look of your Mustang, but it will also add a little more safety with its bright LED strip. Installation is fairly simple and should take under an hour using simple hand tools. When you pull out your factory light, simply unplug the old bulb and plug in the new LED strip. Once installed you’ll immediately notice the difference in brightness with the new LED lights versus your factory light. So if you’re thinking about tinting your third brake light or replacing it altogether, this is a great option because not only will you get the great smoked finish, you’ll also get improved lighting with the bright LEDs.

Aggressive Styling. The Axial Mustang LED Third Brake Light from AmericanMuscle adds aggressive styling to any 2005-2009 S197 mustang with it's subtly smoked lens and bright LED's.

Additional Safety. The Axial Smoked Mustang LED Third Brake Light not only adds great looks to your pony, but it also adds an extra level of safety making sure you are seen when you hit the brakes.

Simple Installation. The LED Third Brake Light is straight forward and simple to install. Just unplug the old bulbs and replace it with the new LED strip. See the convenient video below for more details.

DOT Approved. This Axial Mustang Third Brake Light is DOT (Department of Transportation) approved for legal street use under compliance # QR1300142.

Application. This Axial Smoked LED Third Brake Light fits in the stock location on all 2005 to 2009 Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt, and Shelby models. It will not fit Mustangs with aftermarket rear wing spoilers that cover or move the third brake lights location.

  • We recommend checking out all the connectors to ensure everything is connected properly. There may be debris in the connectors that could be causing this issue as well.


Will this work with a Raxiom 3rd Brake Light Flasher?

  • The Smoked LED Third Brake Light should work just fine in conjunction with the Raxiom 3rd Brake Light Flasher.

    LED 3rd Brake Light

    I have Smoked Coyote Tail lights and I smoked my 3rd brake light lens. Looks good, lots of compliments, but just not quite brite enough. Added this LED 3rd Brake Light, looks as good, has a great fit - and, it is bright! A recommended addition.

    Looks performs well!

    Much better than stock. Mine wasn't broken, but looked like a bulb was out, even with an led bulb replacement. Just a poor design for the stock brake light! This is much better and I feel safer. I give it 4 stars as I feel its a tad pricey, but what do I know?

    I installed this led brake light in under 5 minutes! It's much brighter then stock and looks a whole lot better with the smoked lenses. Matches my side marker lights now couldn't be more happier with this product.

    Super easy and amazing

    This brake light took all of 10 minutes to install, and blends seamlessly into the rear end. The led's are also much brighter than the one stock bulb making them much easier to see

    The light looks great! I've had the Gen5 Taillights for a while now and this absolutely completed the set. Really bright and great look. It could be more tinted but it still looks amazing on my black '08! Really easy install, just pull off the trim panel on in your trunk, pop out the old light, pop in the new one, and you're golden! Did it probably in about 5 minutes. Definitely worth the money!

    Quick upgrade and great looks.

    I think it took all of maybe 5 minutes to remove the stock light and install the AmericanMuscle unit! Two clips and a simple wiring connector was all it took. Decently made unit, complete with the gasket for between the light and deck lid. LEDs are good and bright, too. This completes my change over to all LEDs across the back, and will now pursue the remaining exterior lights.

    Excellent addition

    I added this third LED brake lamp to match up my LED tail lamps and I am not disappointed. IT was the perfect touch to my lighting conversion to LED and it's at least ten times brighter than the stock unit. Paired with LED sequential tail lamps it's the perfect setup and I love the fact that you can see this many many cars away as it improves the safety and grabs the attention of an on coming driver to stop. The installation says to remove many things but all I did was pop out the old one disconnect the wire from the socket and pop the new one in. Install was less than a minute!

    The rear is bright!

    After installing LED tail lights on the wife's 07, there still seemed to be something not quite finished. She got this item for Christmas and we installed shortly after. Very nice look and fit, plus the rear is now all LEDs. Everything looks great now. AM carries a full line of updated LEDs for all of our Mustangs.

    Must have

    This is the third brake light that Ford should have installed at the factory. The difference in the amount to light this new brake light puts out over the OEM is like night and day. This is also the perfect companion to the Gen5 tail lights that I will be installing. Even if you are not changing out other tail lights, this third brake light is a must have. Very easy install, great fit, great look on the car.

    Really bright!

    I added these along with sequential plug in harness and the smoked taillights. Really rounded out the rear of the car. May add the led taillights later to really "brighten" it up!

    Best appearance upgrade for the money

    This smoked 3rd brake light assembly took less than 10 minutes to install and dramatically improved the appearance of my sonic blue with black strips. The black look goes bright red when the brake is applied. Only bad thing is I now have to buy a set of smoked tail lights to complete the look.

    awesome light

    my wife got this for me as a Christmas present and wow... it was brighter than the tree :) looks awesome on my 07 Pony, and installation was a 5 minute job (remove boot liner, disconnect power, pop four clips on the existing light, insert new light, connect power and pop the boot liner in) Did I mention how bright it is? Now I just need to find a few hours to upgrade the lights at the front to match :)

    Installation took 5 minutes. Just pop out the old one from inside the trunk, then slap in the new one. The LEDs are nice and bright.
