    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.

        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!

        Hi, Can you tell me what makes this one DOT compliant and not the Axial brand? Thanks!

        • The Raxiom Smoked LED Third Brake Light was tested and received DOT stampings on the lens. Axial does not display these markings and have not been DOT approved.

        Is this plug and play or do you have to purchase the fuse to make the leds work from stock?

        • This light will be a plug and play kit and will not require any modifications to get installed on your 99-04 Mustang.

        Can you use stock bulbs if you don't want LESs ? Looks like a hole for the bulb holder

        • With the Raxiom Smoked LED Third Brake Light the LEDs are already integrated into the light. You would not be able to used the stock bulbs

        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.

            Good looking product. The middle two bulb housings would not latch tight so I had to modify the amount of lip on them both to get them to latch right. Other than that good looking product.

            The update to LED looks great. The time of installation was around 30 minutes and used the existing wiring harness. The smoked smoke lens looks great on my black 2002 mustang.

            Doesn't always work

            It doesn't always work when I hit the breaks and doesn't come on most times when I turn the lights on but when it does it looks pretty cool. If you can figure out how to get it to work 100 of the time I'd say it'd be a great replacement for the factory light and give the car a more modern look.

            description leaves out significant detail...

            This light looks great on my '99 convertible, just painted 3 part black cherry metal flake. You don't even see the light until the LED's light up! But the description of this item omits the significant detail that you must re-use the wiring harness from the old top stoplight. SO, don't through away or sell the old top light until you've removed the wiring harness> AM would do well to point this out for this part, and to offer the wiring harness for those who don't have their old light. Deducting 1 star for this omission.

            Digital 3rd brake light

            The Raxiom smoke digital 3rd brake light is a very nice replacement for the tired dull stock one. I'm going to give you some good advice on installing. 1st off it uses the original harness to work remove the brake light bulbs and plug in the new plug. However, the new blue plug is too wide to fit inside of the stock harness but easy fix, take a sharp knife and trim down both sides of the plug then it will fit. One more note when plugin it in make sure that the green wire and the black wire line up with the two plugs. It would have been a 30 minute install if I hadn't struggled so long trying to make a 3/8 wide plug fit into a 1/4 slot...

            Thumbs Up

            Great product experience. Looks much better activated in person than uploaded pics indicate. Install wasn’t a huge deal...meaning I researched what I was getting into by spending time w/ online “How To” videos beforehand. The golden tip that benefited me best was using a flathead screwdriver to pry open the female nodes a little to allow the deeper LED connectors to fit better into the sockets. I didn’t need to do any crimping (like what was suggested) - but I DID need to lightly coat the socket collars w/ a thin film of waterproof grease to allow me to correctly twist/ turn the sockets into place. On my car, without a little grease, I couldn’t completely turn the sockets into their locking position, or else risk breaking the sockets by using too much force fighting the friction. As long as you understand that all/ most figments are EXTREMELY snug (which might require a little finagling) you should have a positive experience.

            Great Looking Piece

            Love the look of this third brake light, however, fitment could be improved. The edges of the housing were nowhere near flush, the light sits lower inside the grove unlike the factory light, and the mounting bolts didn't line up quite right with the factory holes causing me to have to shave the driver's side hole just a bit. Overall, a lot nicer looking than the old factory light, but could definitely use some work.
