    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?

    StaticNinja

    • 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?

    Macwest

    • 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 like it looks good but it was a little loose putting it on you can wiggle it a little bet and it hasn’t popped out going down the Hwy or washing my car at the car wash yet. Whoever made it should’ve made the backside just as wide as the factory that way it would fit perfectly.

      Looks Good!

      Purchased this to replace the OEM that had the "mustang" black out sticker on it. Never liked that. I have Black 09, and it looks great. Takes about 5 minutes to install. Not quite as "substantial" as the OEM piece, but for less than $30 not that worried about it.

      A must if you buy the tail lights

      Looks great a must when you install the matching tail lights. It wasnt as easy to remove the original light as the video showed but figured it out carefully using a screw driver

      EASY IMPROVEMENT

      Replacing the stock third brake light with the Axial Smoked LED light was a cinch. I actually spent more time trying to figure out how to get the old light out than I did putting the new light in. The smoked light, along with the smoked taillights give the back of the car that blacked out effect I was looking for.

      You will not regret it

      Definitely added a fine touch to my 05 GT. I have a black and silver theme (Silver paint, black rims, smoked tails and third break light, black headlight housing, and black stripes). The product complimented my overall theme that I envisioned :)

      Yes

      A must-have, it's an LED brake light that really pops, it does exactly what it's supposed to do. Seems well-constructed and has a great exterior fit and finish. I give five stars.

      Stealth

      Stealthy look, bright when braking. Little longer to install because the factory light was difficult to remove.

      Nice addition

      I purchased the third brake light to match the LED tail lights I recently purchased. They compliment the brake lighting all across the tail end of the Mustang. Easily installed, and highly visible.

      What a steal, this is quick to replace, adds that nice final touch to the back of the car, and honestly is only what 30ish dollars more than a replacement bulb! I would buy this over and over again! Time to install: 30seconds

      Not a smoked look

      I wanted to change my third brake light into a smoked look was kinda disappointed on what I received its more like a light tinted look if your going for a stealth style I wouldn't recommend buying this but if your looking to change your old third brake light then I would recommend this product.
