Review & Install Video

Hey everyone, I’m Justin with, and I’m here with a way to completely set your ride apart from the pack, thanks to these black LED taillights for all ’99-’04 Mustangs. These lights feature a completely unique design that utilizes modern LED technology with the same three-bar lighting pattern as your OEM lights. Those LED lights are going to be a nice improvement over your weak incandescent factory lights, meaning increased safety and visibility. Part of the aggressive styling can be attributed to the all-black housing, paired with those crystal clear lenses. Because these lights include the additional wiring harness, making them completely plug-and-play, installation should be very straightforward, and should take you no more than 30 minutes from start to finish. If you’re really digging that LED look and you want more, then you might want to pair these taillights up with a black LED third brake light, like what we’ve done with our V6. So if you want to give your New Edge Mustang some modern styling that’s sure to get you noticed at shows and on the road, you’ll definitely want to check out these LED taillights for your ’99-’04 Mustang.

Modern Styling. Inspired by modern European LED styling, these Axial Black Tail Lights feature three columns of bright red LED's set in a black housing to add sleek impressive styling and additional safety to your 1999 to 2004 New Edge Mustang.

Added Safety. Replace those weak factory tail lights with numerous high intensity Axial LED bulbs that illuminate quicker and brighter than standard stock incandescent bulbs to improve your driving safety.

Superior Quality. These LED style tail lights are manufactured to high standards from superior quality materials for a perfect fit. And include the required wiring harnesses, making installation plug and play.

Application. This set of two Axial Black LED Style Tail Lights are specifically designed to be a direct fit replacement on the 1999 to 2004 Mustang, including the V6, GT, Bullitt, and Mach 1 models. These tail lights will not fit the SVT Cobra.

Technical Note. Does not work with sequential tail light kits.

Easy install. Great results.

Everything needed comes in the box. Only confusion might be which light port to plug it in to. These look amazing at night and provide plenty of light for night drives.

Sequential Taillights? Would these taillights work with the sequential taillights mod?


Helpful (4)
  • Unfortunately not. LED taillights will not work properly with the sequential harness.

Are these as dark (when lights are off) as the regular style smoked tail lights


Helpful (0)
  • The Axial Black 3-Light LED Tail Lights utilize a clear lens, so you will be able to see into the housing better than with a smoked lens on a smoke tail light.


will these tail lights ever get sequential that can be used with this? I bought some of these from an individual and would like to know if that will ever happen.


Helpful (0)
  • The Black 3-Light LED Tail Lights (99-04 GT, V6, Mach 1) will not work in conjunction with sequential tail light kits.


do i have to seal these tail lights? i know lots of after market lights have to be sealed to block water from getting in. do you have to with these?


Helpful (0)
  • When you are installing Black 3-Light LED Tail Lights (99-04 GT, V6, Mach 1), you do not need to seal the lights. While it is not mandatory to seal them, I would recommend using silicone to do so because it will give you extra security to make sure no condensation gets into the lights.


reverse light As this is plug and play, is the reverse light standard or LED? If standard can it be converted to LED?


Helpful (0)
  • It uses the factory reverse lights, But American muscle offers a conversion kit for $39.99 in the LED bulbs section of lights. They are definitely a new look to your stang I have them.

    Sharp looking LEDs for a fair price

    Very quick and relatively painless installation. Compared to the more premium tail lights on the market, these are a great price and offer a great, modern look. Overall quality could be a little better, particularly when it comes to the seals between the lens and the actual body of the light. So I definitely would seal them. Other than this and the fact that the switch noise when braking is a little louder than usual, these are a fantastic pair of lights that really give the back end of the car some attitude and style.

    Tail lights with attitude

    After the 1st one was installed in an hour, the 2nd was completed in about 15 minutes. The nuts for removal were hard to get at and one of them had a flat super thin washer that was difficult to remove. Had to purchase a deep socket to remove nuts. Overall, very satisfied. Would be nice if there was a kit to make sequential....

    Crowd pleaser for sure lol. These will definitely give your car a more aggressive look in the back. I didn't want smoked tailights, so the black housing with the clear lens was perfect (also keeps away from that Euro look). May I add that they are VERY BRIGHT. Can't go wrong with these.

    Great looking and performing lights

    Now im gone tell it like it is... These are fantastic looking lights but i just wish the quality and craftsmenship was a little better. I installed these but I HIGHLY recomend sealing them becuase im down here in houston and the weather can change any minute; and for the most part its very humid here and they condensate. Mines condensated after only two days on the car. but AMERICANMUSCLE.COM shows you how to fix this problem and it did. Also I have L.E.D. lights on all of my vehicles(From Various brands) and I notice the switchgear inside of these are rather loud...but all in all im pretty happy with them.

    These tail lights give any New Edge mustang that little extra something that makes the car look amazing. I was bored with the stock lights but didnt want anything to ricey.. and these were perfect! They r very similiar to the stock lights except with LED light (obviously) and WOW do they look good. Should have come straight from the factory in my opinion

    Bright & Eye Catching

    American Muscle sent me the chrome versions first by mistake. It was my first order from American Muscle and I was worried about exchange. No Problem . AM shipped me the correct ones immediately . Black ones looks great. Not difficult to install. I\'d like a nice bright white backup LED to go with the red brake LED.

    LED taillights

    This product really enhances the look on the 99-04 stangs. I like the fact that it's LED and it fits the time period. The only reason I would say for the rating was that they leak and fill with moisture from time to time. Especially when it rains or I wash my car, it will collect moisture. I got them replaced a while ago resealed the new ones and it still gets moisture even with the seal. I've talked with a lot of friends who own stangs and they said to never go aftermarket on taillights because they will leak. As long as you know they will leak I recommend the product because you will not be disappointed with the look of them, its just not that reliable as far as retaining moisture is concerned. The main thing I would say is to seal the outside with silicon and if they collect moisture, keep it out in the sun and hope it gets dry.

    looks great

    Looks great.....however they leaked. Washed my car and realized they had a ton of water in it. Took them out and American Muscle was great and replaced them quickly. Got the new ones and realized there was a huge gap....sealed them myself and haven't drove it yet. Kinda burst my bubble. Now I'm scared it will happen again.

    One of the 2 square ballasts that are screwed inside broke off during shipping. I don't care much for sending things back if avoidable. Stuck some Amazing Goop adhesive and it stuck like a charm. Other than that very easy install although I despise taking out and putting trunk panels back in. Awesome look and the Silverstar Ultra reverse lights I put in are blinding lol.
