These are the Raxiom DRL projector headlights in black, for 2005 to 2009 GT and V6 Mustangs. These headlights bring a different look to the older S197s with the tri-bar daytime running lights that are similar to those that you see on the S550 Mustang. These are projector headlights with LED daytime running light accents, and a black housing with a clear lens for a dark appearance, without ruining visibility. The install for these is easy. It's a one-out-of-three wrenches on the difficulty meter, and it'll take you about an hour to complete. The biggest differentiator between these and other projector style headlights, I would say, is the styling. Most obviously, you have the tri-bar daytime running lights here, and these are LED lights, and they totally change the looks of the headlight, which, looking back now, is more straightforward and simple than you see nowadays. These bring more of that modern style to the headlights. These have a black housing, too, which gives the headlight a darker look, but because only the housing is black and the lenses are clear, it's not gonna take away any of the brightness of the lights. You go with a smoked or tinted lens, that's when you start to impact visibility, but going with a black housing gives you a similar look without compromising brightness or visibility. Raxiom does offer these same headlights but with a chrome housing instead of a black housing. Those headlights have a different overall look to them. So, you can always check those out if you aren't into the black housing. Another nice feature here is that these are a direct plug-and-play replacement, even though they are projectors with that accent lighting, so these were designed to fit in the GT and the V6 that have standard halogen bulbs. The DRL accent lighting taps into the stock running lights using connectors that are supplied for you. The lights are also sealed to keep out any moisture, and there's a two-year full manufacturer's warranty, too, in case anything were to happen. As far as price, these headlights do have that LED accent lighting and they are projector-style headlights, so I expected them to be a little bit more expensive than some of the other plain options out there. You can expect to pay close to but under the $400 mark for these. There are a handful of headlight options for the '05 to '09, though, so if these are a little bit too pricey for you, you can always check out some of the other options. When it comes to the install, this is an easy install, so one-out-of-three wrenches on the difficulty meter, and plan on spending an hour or two getting these on the car. You'll just need some basic hand tools to get the job done, and you will need a jack and jack stands because you will be pulling the front bumper for the install. Once you have the car in the air, you'll remove the screws and the retainers in the inner fender well on each side. Once that's done, you'll be able to reach the two bolts that are holding the bumper to the fender. You might wanna remove the parking light bulb while you're here. Next, you'll remove the plastic rad cover and remove the 10-millimeter bolts holding the bumper to the rad support. Once the bumper is ready to remove, pull the sides to unclip it, and unclip the fog lights as you pull the bumper away. After that, you'll wire in the new headlights, and you'll be wiring them into the smaller two-wire parking light bulb harness. Use the connectors that are provided for you to wire them into place. Plug in the new main headlight harness from the car to the connector on the new headlights. I would test the lights at this point to make sure they're working properly. If they are, you can reinstall your front bumper, and you're all done. That's gonna wrap things up for the Raxiom DRL projector headlights in black for the 2005 to 2009 GT and V6 Mustang, but you can always check them out more online, right here at americanmuscle.com.

Eye Catching Headlights!
These look so awesome and definitely turn heads. Only cons are that the included H7 bulbs aren't that bright and the instructions show you how to hook up the DRL's to the parking lights. Do yourself a favor and save some time by upgrading to better LED bulbs and wire up the DRL's to an accessory fuse. That way they will be on all the time. Trust me!Helpful (1)

Some great looking aftermarket headlights
They look great on my S281SC. I did my own wire splicing because the included hardware didnt fuse the wiring well enough and had to redo. Nothing but smiles now.Helpful (0)

Do the DRL part of the headlight turn on when the engine is turned on, or after turning on the parking lights? If not, is there a way to wire them so the parking lights don't have to be on?
The Raxiom DRL Projector Headlight is designed to have the DRL's on with the parking lights, however with some creative wiring these could be made to work with the key on only and no use of the parking lights to activate the DRL's. This would require wiring a standard ISO relay to power the DRL's in the following manner: Pin 85 to Ground. Pin 86 To 12v Acc (Key on only) power source. Pin 30 from fused 12V Source. Pin 87 to lamps. This will allow the DRL's to activate any time the key is turned on.
I would like to buy the Raxiom lights and it says it uses stock bulbs. This is fine but my stock bulbs are H13. The raxiom lights are H7. so that is not stock bulbs according to my 2006 Mustang GT. The question was asked before but I did not see an answer. If it comes with the H7 bulbs, can I upgrade to a brighter or LED H7 bulb ? The raxiom lights are great but if they come with or I have to use stock bulb, then it is not bright enough.
The Raxiom DRL Projector Headlights come with pre-installed H7 bulbs. An aftermarket H7 LED bulb can be used, however HID's cannot be used as these will damage the projector, and void the warranty.
Can anyone that have these lights let me know if these are only low beam lights or do they have low high. I have purchased these and am worried that the visibility at night will not be what I need for driving if they do not have high beams and I will return for refund. I have asked AM questions on these lights and they know little to nothing and are not even answering peoples questions on here for whatever reason. I have even tried to reach out to Raxion on twitter just to be ignored. Please let's get the The community to help answer some of the questions being asked about these lights. Thanks in advance for your help!
Raxiom DRL Projector Headlight - Black (05-09 GT, V6) are equipped with both a high and low beam function.
How do I adjust the light bulb to where the projector light is not shining on the ground? The lights point toward the ground as opposed to the front of the car.
The Raxiom DRL Projector Headlight have an adjustment screw on the back of the headlight housing. You can use it to raise the beam of the headlight.
Has anyone tried using these with the MMD Headlight Splitters? I have a set on my stock lights and I really like the way they look. I'm just wondering if they completely block the light beam or if they somehow work. That concern is the only thing keeping me from pulling the trigger on these beautiful headlights. The splitters are an uncommon touch in my area and I'd like to preserve that look.
We have not tested the Raxiom DRL Projector Headlights with the MMD Headlight splitters but they will work together just fine. The light beam will be be effected at all since they are projectors and the splitters generally do not change the amount of light emitted.
The Raxiom DRL Projector Headlight utilizes an h7 bulb, which connects internally to a harness which exits with the correct connector to hook up to your vehicle's harness for the H13.
These headlights have a silver knob on the back that allows them to be adjusted.
The Raxiom DRL Projector Headlights reuse your factory headlight bulb.
If you are having issues with your lights, we kindly ask that you speak to our Contact Center directly via phone, chat, or email so that we can assist further.
The projector lens in these lights is placed at a distance designed around a halogen bulb. Utilizing an HID will put the bulb and its heat closer to the projector dome lens and cutoff plate and can damage these. Additionally the light pattern would not be correct as the hid's light source will be a different distance to the projector lens than with a halogen bulb.
The DRL projector headlights are designed to fit 05-09 GT and V6 models and will not fit an 07-09 GT500 model.
Unfortunately, we do not recommend using an aftermarket HID kit with these Raxiom DRL Projector Headlights.
The Raxiom DRL Projector Headlights have a built in set of cut off plates, and will give a clean cut off line like other projectors.
These projector headlights will not be able to use the H13 bulbs as they were designed to use the H7 headlight bulbs.
