    LED Third Brake Light Upgrade. Installing Axial's Smoked LED Third Brake Light is a great way to upgrade the appearance and safety of your 1999-2004 Mustang. This Axial Brake Light replaces your New Edge Mustang's weak incandescent stock third brake light bulbs with 12 super bright LEDs. These LEDs will vastly improve your visibility to catch the attention of distracted drivers.

    Quality Construction. Manufactured from OEM grade materials, this Axial LED Third Brake Light is assembled to precise standards for long lasting quality. Featuring a durable black plastic housing with a smoked red lens, this Light employees a single row of 12 LEDs. These super bright LEDs have an average life span of 100,000-hours, to last years longer than any conventional incandescent bulbs.

    Simple Plug and Play Installation. Axial designed their LED Third Brake Light to be a direct plug and play replacement for your Mustang's original factory housing. There is no cutting or modifications required for a clean straight forward install. Installation can be completed in about 15 minutes with just basic hand tools.

    Application. This Axial Smoked LED Third Brake Light is specifically designed for use on 1999-2004 Mustangs, excluding the 2003-2004 SVT Cobra models.

    Has there been any reports of lights staying on all the time due to the low voltage of LED bulbs?

    • Very sorry to hear of your issue. It is possible the resistors in the item are defective. Please contact customer service at 1-877-887-1105 between the hours of 830 am and 11 pm Eastern time to arrange a replacement.

    I did not see this question asked, but I am curious what is the difference between this and the Raxiom?? Other than 30 dollars? To me they both appear identical both are led and both are smoked. The description itself is basically the same, so I would like some clarity. Thanks

    • While they are both similar in design, this third brake light, item number 398336, is not DOT compliant, whereas the Raxiom third brake light, item number 49136, is DOT approved under Compliant #QR1300241.

    Do I need new bulbs?

    • This third brake light kit will replace the factory bulbs with LEDs.

    Helpful (1)

    this product isn't appearing like a plug and play. I have a 03 gt coupe and when I try to use factory harness and plug in the ends from the axial led brake light, they don't seem to fit or go into the factory plug. Afraid that they will hurt my connectors and then I have to buy another 3rd brake light. Any clues or ideas are appreciated.

    • You will need to simply connect each of the LED light sockets into the factory sockets. For further review of the install process please check out this great guide here: https://www.americanmuscle.com/axial-smoked-led-third-brake-light-9904-excluding-cobra-manu-install.html

      The third brake light looks awesome. Gave 4 stars because it had a small chip. Besides that I’m happy with it.

      terrible light

      The inserts from the light to the light bulb harness is very hard to put in. If you can put them in, they already half broken or broken already. None of them worked. The light looks great, but what's the use of having a cool looking light if its a Piece of

      Finally

      This was the only piece on the car that looked “old” when I first got my cobra. Now that it’s updated, looks so much better and cleans up the rear end nicely

      Good, small disappointments

      Looks good. Takes a bit of working with it to get the fitment right but it does fit. The harness plugs are flimsy so be careful inserting into the stock wiring.

      Meh....

      Shipping was fast. Light looks great. Wiring couldn't be cheaper, have to force the plugs in where the bulbs went on your old light and the contacts are so cheap they can't handle the force needed to get them plugged in. First Axial product I've ever bought and I will find an alternative next time.

      It is very good quality; however, the install was not as simple as I thought it would be. Even with the length of time, I am very satisfied with the product.

      Really looking forward to getting these, but when received the last set of 3 LED lights did not work. Will have to send back. Looked pretty good otherwise! Gave 4 stars because I have to send it back for a replacement.

      Not completly smoked. Customer photos deceiving

      The light is not completly smoked like it appears to be in most of the customer submitted photos. Not sure why you would want a Gray trim all around? My error I guess since I never looked at the individual light picks. Wanted to change to the Raxiom since it is a completly smoked one but since it was a Christmas gift and was bought 2 months before Christmas they said they could not do anything about it. Very strange policy.

      Third brake light

      Didn’t take very long to change out the third brake light assembly, and some cleaning after the old one is out. It looks so sleek and very bright once in, and my friend loved it when I drove by him. Now I got so many people asking me where I got it, so I told them about this website for their mustangs. I’ll be buying more body parts and engine parts for modifications for better performance and styles. All thanks to American Muscle site.
