    Review & Installation Video

    Hey guys, this is Heather from AmericanMuscle.com, 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.

    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.

    Will this fit on a 2005 Saleen Mustang?

    • I don't think so. But take some measurements of a stock 3rd brake light and see if they're the same

    Has anyone else had an issue with a few of the LED's in it flickering?

    • 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.

      Third brake light

      I'm glad I went for the $50 vs. the $30 light. Reason...DOT approved!!! Looks great and fitment was perfect.

      Amazing Look

      The fitment is on point. They are exactly as AM and Raxion advertise; plug and play. The lights are so easy to install that only took me 16 minutes to do it. It took me longer to clean the area than to do the lights swap. In addition, they give your ride an immediate jaw drop appearance.

      Yeah... That's The Look

      A perfect fit, a great new look, far brighter than the OEM light, and such an easy conversion and install to do! I tried a LED bulb conversion with the OEM fixture first, and it got a little brighter. But this smoked lens conversion with 18 bright LEDs is the look and brightness I wanted.

      Works very well with the Raxiom

      Works very well with the Raxiom 5th Gen sequential taillights. I'm going for an all blacked out/stealth look considering my car is already jet black, or might add some stripes, I don't know where exactly I want to go yet. Nonetheless, I like it very well. Install is as simple as pop the old one out, remove old plug/insert new plug, and pop the new one in with a little aligning if you're picky about that like I am.

      Looks great.

      Installed this third brake light yesterday in about 10 minutes. The light itself when the brake is pushed is very bright and attention grabbing. Has a nice dark look on my candy apple red 09 when unlit, much better than stock and that puny little bulb :)

      Nice touch

      It's lighter in color than I expected but luckily blends in very well with white Le Mans stripes on black paint. If it weren't for the stripes, it wouldn't be dark enough for my liking. Just sayin'. But easy to install, bright, state legal...I dig it.

      Super easy install and just sick!

      Killer addition to my 07 roush! Took me longer to figure out how to get the old one out than it did to put the new one in. Ten mins total and well worth it - matches up to my Raxiom vector tail lights!
