Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

Hey I’m Justin with, and I’m going to be taking a closer look at these smoked tail lights fitting all 87-93 Fox Mustangs. At first glance you can see that these tail lights feature that dark smoked appearance that is always a big hit with a lot of gearheads. What you won’t see until these tail lights are in action is that modern LED lighting that makes these particular tail lights so unique. Instead of using dull dated incandescent bulbs like your factory lights, these tail lights use a number of bright red LEDs. These LEDs are going to do a couple of things for you, for one they’re going to update the rear end introducing some modern lighting technology on your 20+ year old ride. In addition, they’re also going to make you and your tail lights much more visible while on the road, increasing your safety and hopefully keeping anyone from plowing into your when you’re braking. Once thing I like about these tail lights is that yeah they’re a little different and totally modern, but they’re still not quite as wild as a set of altezzas for instance. Sure, they give you that distinctive look and all, but without going over the top at least in my opinion. The lights do fit like a factory part so there’s no need for any modification and they do come with a 1 year warranty. Because there’s no modification needed the install itself should be relatively straightforward, first you want to remove your factory tail lights and all the bulbs with the exception of the reverse lights. You want to make sure you don’t plug the socket in upside down, otherwise you’ll end up blowing some fuses and the lights won’t function properly. To make this easier on yourself, just simply match up the colors of the wires on your new lights to the wires in the factory harness. Red to red or red to brown, and of course black to black. When you get everything plugged in, just make sure the lights function properly before you put everything back together, and that’s it. Getting everything bolted up to your ride should only take you about a couple of hours from start to finish. So if you’re looking to bring your Foxbody’s tail lights into the 21st century with the help of some modern LED lighting, all presented in a very aggressive smoked package, then be sure to check out these tail lights right here at

Modern Look. Give your 1987-1993 Foxbody's style a modern edge with a pair of smoked Axial LED tail lights. These LED tail lights will give your Pony a distinctive look that will stand out both during the day and at night.

Smoked Style. The smoked lenses of these Axial LED tail lights add great aggressive style to your Foxbody. The sporty good looks of their smoked style is sure to impress.

Full Warranty. These Axial lights feature a Full One Year Warranty.

Application. This set of Axial smoked LED tail lights is designed to be a direct fit replacement on your 1989 to 1993 Mustang with only a quick wire splice for flawless operation and outstanding looks. The 1987-1988 Mustangs will require modification to the bulb harness for proper installation.

    Simple yet major project!

    Had to replace some garbage clears someone had put on the car before me. Literally the most difficult thing was not having the correct hardware do to the previous owners idiocy. With the correct nuts and washers in hand, this whole install took about 15 minutes from removal to replacement/test. For those talking about popping fuses, seriously, watch the install instructions. Color match black to black (as always) and you're done. Stock connectors for the corner markers were a little tight for the included harness, but, at least I know it's not coming loose. Make sure you clean your bay/recess before installing them and you'll be golden. Huge improvement over stock. Get major looks and comments from people who take notice. Great alternative to the ricer "Euro" styles out there!

    perfect upgrade to my '89 notch

    i was a little worried that these lights might give my fox a "rice" look, but as soon as i threw these on, my jaw hit the ground. these lights look so d*** good and go right along with the blackout look im going for with my car. not to mention its a more modern look for a classic. the install was a breeze, takes no time at all, BUT what they dont tell you is that you need to replace your stock thermal flasher with an electronic one cuz the leds dont put enough load on the thermal unit to make your blinkers work, and this can be a chore because, ford (in their infinite wisdom) decided they would send you on a wild goose chase to find this piece. some are located behind the glove box, some are behind the stereo unit, and some are under the dash by the steering column. once i found this after searching for what seemed like an eternity, they lit right up and worked perfectly. i love them and get tons of compliments on them. the fitment is just about perfect, couldnt have asked for a better exterior upgrade. one thing that did irritate me, is they started letting moisture in soon after they were installed, but i talked to an AM rep and theyre going to replace them. 0 hassle, excellent service, beautiful lights. highly recommend!

    Very cool

    Bought these for my 89 GT, the install was a breeze but the wiring should have been explained at least vaguely. When plugging in the brake light, the plug has to be a certain way or the lights will do the opposite of what they should do. When hitting the brake the lights would dim. After playing with it for a few minutes I flipped the plug over and plugged it in and voilà, worked perfectly. These lights are sick, especially on a black drop top fox. Highly recommend these to update any old Stang to modern lights. I'll post up a finished product a little later.

    Nice Lights

    Easy to install and look great. Like some of the other reviewers I blew a couple of fuses by plugging in the 3157 plug backwards. Pay attention to the red wires on both the plug and the light socket. Once I lined them up, they work great! Would have been nice for them to include that little piece of advice in the packing.

    These lights are simply an awesome and easy upgrade for your fox body. Went through a few fuses till I found the downloadable instructions on American Muscle. Was freaking out when the turn signals didn't work correctly, but then discovered I needed to change the stock thermal flasher to an electronic flasher (552 electronic flasher) because the LED's do not put enough of a load on the thermal flasher to make it work correctly. Less than $10 at most auto parts stores and they work PERFECTLY! Thanks American Muscle, my car will never be the same!

    Excellent Upgrade!

    I purchased this product over a year ago and waited until I got the car painted. This was a big improvement over the stock tail lights. The only let down is no instructions with the lights as to how to connect. I blew a few fuses and finally figured out the correct way to plug up. Follow the tech wiring on the reviews with the pictures. When you check the wires look for a white marking . This will indicate the hot side for the lights. You will have to purchase a heavy duty flashed to make the signal lights work. Part # 552 or the upgrade flasher works great. On my vehicle I found the flasher located behind the glove compartment on the left side and not in the fuse box. To save yourself some time put your emergency flashers on and listen for the flasher noise. Once you locate the noise from your flasher , you will know that's your emergency flasher and not your signal flasher. Update the back up lights and tag lights for the complete finish up date.

    Awesome Lights

    Lights look phenominal on my 93' gt. Two issues, they NEED to include instructions about matching up the red wires on the 57 bulb connection, also that the load required for the turn signals may require you to replace the turn signal flasher fuse (the one under the dash not in the fuse box)

    • Response from AmericanMuscle

      These tails are definitely made for your Mustang. Some customers have found that they needed a flasher fuse for proper install. That might be what is causing your problems. Hope this helps! If you continue to have any issues, please give our customer service a call and we'd be happy to help!

    Freakin' Awesome

    I installed these on my '90 LX and they look phenomonal. It's deep titanium so it really gives the rear end a menacing dark look. Also I love giving a 21 year old car the modern update of LED lighting, i've installed other LED lights and these go right along with it. Installing them was very straight foward, plug and play. I would recommend these to anyone with a fox, Period.

    These taillights are no longer legal in Texas. Smoked taillights were outlawed in May 2012 and your vehicle won't pass inspection.

    These went in easy and they look great! I have gotten compliments during the day and at night from other Mustang owners. I needed to upgrade my flasher switch to make them blink fast enough for turn signals due to the additional power demand. If you are considering them do it!
