Review & Install Video

Hi everyone I’m Justin with and I’m taking a look at Raxiom’s smoked tail light kit for all 96-98 V6 and GT Mustangs. This particular kit features a classic factory design, and highlights a subtle smoked lens. As you can see the color of the lens itself is more of a deep ruby red, which is a nice alternative to the factory lens, or also a nice alternative to the deep dark blackout style lens which might be a little too much for some folks. The quality of these lights are top notch and they’re built to factory specs, this is apparent when fitting the lights, you can see they fit perfectly. However if you do encounter a problem Raxiom has your back with their industry leading two year warranty. The kit itself comes with everything you need to install, basically just the lights themselves and instructions. Completely plug and play kit here so there’s no wiring needed whatsoever, install time should take you about 2 hours using basic hand tools. So if you’re looking to change out the stock tail lights on your 96-98 Mustang, but you don’t want to fully commit to a blackout kit, then Raxiom’s smoked tail light kit is a great place to start.

Can you keep your white insert from your old tail lights with out using the black insert that comes with the new tail lights?


  • You technically can switch out the insert but you will need to use caution not to break the insert also, the only reason I did not pursue changing the insert, is because I was not sure if it would seal the lights and prevent moisture from going inside the light.

Can this set fit a 95 GT? I have a 95 GT with stock taillights. If I purchase these raxiom lights as well as a conversion wire, would that work on my GT?


  • i have a 94 gt. the 96-98 lights are a direct replacement. same size and shape as the 94-95 lights. and same bolt placement. shouldn't be any problems in changing them over. would also recomend the 96-98 secquential taillight harness.

Im having trouble finding taillights for my 1995 mustang GT. Everything seems to be 96-98. Would the 96-98 work with my car?


  • Hello, the 96-98 Tail lights will work on your 95 GT, but you need a new wiring harness. We do sell a complete kit, which is the Raxiom Smoked Tail Lights and Sequential Combo (94-98 All) which you can find here:

    Fits my '94 GT Convertible

    The listing syays these fit '96-'98 Mustangs, but they easily fit my '94 GT Convertible. The tail llights, though different in appearance, are all the same outside dimensions on '94-'98. The wirering is the same, too. The three verticle lenses in these tail lights look much more agressive and traditionally 'Mustang' than the stock 3 horizontal-lens lights that came on my '94. Easy installation made this a great purchase!

    Smoked tail lights

    I have a white 97 gt automatic, were im from everyone has a dicided to get these blacked out rear lights. So that my mustang could have a diffrent look. If u want your pony to stand out from the rest, I highly recommend getting these for your pony. Instalation was simple took me about 30 mins. And they took about a week for the lights to come in. Thanks AM for the great product.

    Excellent quality. No problems at all with them, just wish they were smoked a tad bit darker. Other than that no complaints!

    Looks nicer than stock, WAY better looks than other aftermarket options

    Appearance-wise, these look like plain OEM lights with a factory tint option, which is great because it makes them look like they actually BELONG on a Mustang. Unlike the horrendous-looking Altezza style lenses that the prior owner put on my '96 GT, these blend in perfectly with my car's monochromatic black theme, but without being TOO dark to the point that they don't let the brake/parking lights shine through brightly. The only downside I had was that the posts going through the back aren't quite long enough to allow you to thread on the plastic nuts that retain the fuzzy trim panels inside the trunk; however, the aftermarket lights that I was replacing with these also had the same problem, so apparently this is a universal screw-up with every brand of tail lenses and nothing unique to Raxiom. Overall, VERY happy with these lenses.
