Review & Installation Video

Hey I’m Justin with, and I have with me a couple of LED third brake light options from Raxiom, fitting your 99-04 Mustang. Raxiom’s whole philosophy is that lights just aren’t for seeing but also for being seen, so with that in mind they produce a wide variety of stylish and unique lighting for your Mustang, all backed by an industry leading full 2 year warranty. The two lights I have with me here are Raxiom’s smoked and chrome option, and they’re designed to completely replace the factory third brake light located in the trunk lid of your New Edge Mustang. As for the styling differences, I think you can see it’s pretty obvious, the smoked option is available here on the site and it adds some of that dark aggressive styling to the rear end of the car, that works especially well with a set of dark smoked tail lights, or even a blacked out rear deck lid panel like we have installed on our 2000 V6. That chrome styling however will look good on its own, and add some of that clean styling to the rear end of the car. Besides the styling differences, I’d say the biggest feature with both these options, is that they replace the dull, dated, and possibly burned out factory third brake light, and replace it with a series of bright, modern LED bulbs. Not only does this look a million times better but it also increases the visibility, which should help your safety in return. Since the Raxiom housings are made to original factory specifications using OEM quality materials, the fit and finish is perfect as you might expect, because of this the install should be pretty straightforward, and only take you about 30 minutes from start to finish, using nothing but a 10mm socket and your own two hands. So if you’re looking to replace the old and tired third brake light on your New Edge with a modern piece that utilizes LED lighting, then be sure to check out the smoked or chrome option from Raxiom, right here at

Bold Styling. The Mustang LED Third Brake Light from Raxiom adds eye-catching bold styling to any 1999-2004 GT or V6 Mustang with it's dark black lens and bright LED's.

Extra Safety. Not only does the Raxiom Black LED Third Brake Light add eye-catching styling to your new edge mustang, but it will also add an extra level of safety making sure that you are seen when you apply the brakes with it's bright red LED's.

Simple Installation. This Raxiom third brake light is crafted from OEM quality materials for a perfect fit. Installation is straight forward and simple, just unplug the old bulbs and replace with the new LED strip. See the convenient video below for more details.

DOT Approved. This Mustang Third Brake Light is DOT (Department of Transportation) approved for legal street use under compliance # QR1300241.

Awesome product

I bought this light to replace my old warped one. It was easy to install and looks great against the dark shadow grey exterior. It took 20 minutes to install and works great. Highly recommended.

LED 3rd brake light

Excellent product! Quality is on par with the factory piece, and it matches my tinted taillamps perfectly. High visibility as well. Definitely a step up from the stock piece.

Does it come with a new housing? My third brake light is old and dirty. Does this one come with a new housing or only the led sockets to install in the old housing?


  • This 3rd Brake Light is actually a replacement housing with LED plugs. The LED plugs get connectedinto your original wiring harness and your stock reverse bulb gets reused. Hope this helps!

Why is hard to push the prongs into the socket? Is this normal or do I need to force them in? I do not want to break them.


  • When installing the Raxiom Smoked LED Third Brake Light the connections will be tight to alleviate issues with the lamp disconnecting while in use, since there are wires which will exert some pressure on the socket.

Are there any plans for Raxiom to make a smoked LED third brake light for 2003 2004 Cobras?


  • At this point we do not have any information about future production on a product like that.

I have an 2003 cobra with the factory spoiler delete . I noticed the led 3rd brake light you have fits into the spoiler itself. However , mine looks just like this Raxiom LED third brake like for the 99-04 mustangs. Would this fit my 03 cobra with the factory spoiler delete? Thanks!


  • While the Raxiom Smoked LED Third Brake Light may look close it will not fit your 2003 Cobra.

I'm planning on using traditional bulbs for the main two brake lights on my 02 GT vert, not LEDs. Will this LED third brake light stick out too much when used with a set of smoked non-LED tail lights, for example?


  • Unfortunately this is more of an opinion based question. In my opinion I think it would look great but I would recommend you check out some of our customer's photos posted below to see how it would look.

Does the 3rd brake light come with a gasket? I see no mention if it does or does not.


  • Yes, and it's a perfect fit.

    This sure did make the car stand out even more. Was tired of watching the fade marks getting more white and brittle. Now I have these wonderful LED's which look fabulous on my ride.

    Great visual improvement

    The factory 3rd brake housing on my wingless 99 cobra was faded and stood out like an eyesore. This new unit has great looks and at a great price. I hit a few snags during the install but that is expected on an 11 year old car. If you are having trouble getting all 4 banks of LEDs to illuminate you might have to play with the wire positions a little like I did. Overall it is a great affordable upgrade.

    Looks nice

    Installation was a breeze. The only problem you might have is putting in the connecters. I would recommend laying it flat on a table and then with a little force it should slide right in. I think the whole thing took me around 40 minutes (including the time it took me to run to a neighbors for a 10mm deep socket). Once in it looks amazing the LEDs are super bright and the black tint looks awesome! Another great product from am

    Nice, low-key addition

    My philosophy: I don't put anything on my mustang that non-mustang aficionados would think was aftermarket junk. I want my car to look and run the way I think Ford would have made it look if cost and government regulations weren't factors, within reason. Make it look and perform meaner--more Mustang. This brake light looks like it could have been stock, if LED's were common back then. It's a simple improvement that looks cool without being gaudy. This part, along with the grill-delete kit, wheels and the shorty antennae are basic appearance parts that everyone should add to their New Edge stangs.

    smoked third brake light

    the fit and finish was excellent--the light socket conections where a ''b'' until I figured-out the trick,you have to plier squeeze the male contacts to make them fit into the female sockets-a little die-electric grease helped also.

    Super easy to install just make sure you get the polarity right when plugging in the new lights, LEDs need correct polarity. Otherwise two nuts and install.

    Great Break light

    I am a 54 year old female that does accounting for a living. The guys at work told me they could replace this for me. I figured if they could do it so could I. It took me about 1 hour to replace the piece due to the bolts being on very tight and me not having the right tool to begin with. I have replaced the light it looks great and it works!

    Looks sweet!

    I ordered this and it arrived very quickly. Sadly the light casing was broken. I called and spoke to Paul and he was very helpful and replaced it for me. It was very simple to install. Took maybe 15-20 minutes. Looks way better than the stock lights. Only thing that sucked was waiting another week to install it. I would recommend to anyone with a mustang.

    Failed Virginia State Inspection

    I bought this light to replace my old, warped, faded one..I loved the sleek led look of it, so flush that it almost blended in with my black mustang! But its NOT SAE OR DOT APPROVED so the lens FAILED a VA state inspection. I lost my old one so I now have 180 dollars into my third brake light setup...and its back to stock.
