Review & Install Video
What's going on, guys? Adam here with AmericanMuscle.com. Today, I'm bringing you my quick overview of the Raxiom Hood Vent Mounted Turn Signal Indicators fitting all '15-'16 GT Mustangs. If you are an S550 owner out there and you appreciate the iconic styling of the '67-'68 Hood Mounted Turn Signal Indicators, as well as the S550 California specials, then the Raxiom Turn Signal Indicators I have here may be for you. The Hood Vent Turn Signal Indicators that I have here from Raxiom are made to be fully functional. They will work on your turn signals, hazard lights, and when you're unlocking and locking your door. This option from Raxiom is offered in a smoked amber LED to give a bright illumination, as well as an aggressive look. Now, if you're looking for different colors, there are other color options on the site, so you can check those out for a customization for your ride.
These LED housings are made to fit specifically into the hood vent on a factory '15-'16 GT with heat extractor vents. So if you're rocking an aftermarket Heat Extractor, such as one from Roush, then you may need to check out the other options on the site. Because there are other companies that make them to specifically fit with other aftermarket hood vents. I really do like this Raxiom kit because is a very simple plug and play option that mounts using existing hardware right into the hood vents you already have. Some of the other options on the market may not be an exactly plug and play kit, might not man up as easily, and might require a little bit of splicing to make them work. Also, the Raxiom comes with a free two-year warranty that other options on the site do not. The pricing for this is gonna be pretty straight forward. The Raxiom kit I have here comes in at around $150, whereas the other options you might find on the site will be about $20 less. Now, keep in mind that this does come with a free two-year warranty, so for 20 extra bucks, you get peace of mine plus a plug and play option.
The installation of the Raxiom kit, like I said, is gonna be completely plug and play, so it is pretty straight forward. It may require you to trim down the notches on the vent just to make these fit in there properly. With that said, you wanna have a good socket set on hand, as well as flat head screw driver and may even a cutting tool to get that trimming done. To kick the installation off, you'll have to start by popping the hood and dropping the top portion of the hood insulator to gain access to the hood vents that are held on by plastic clips.
Once you get those off, you'll be able to put the housing of the Raxiom lights in place. With that said, you might have to do some trimming to vent housing just to make those fit in, but once it does, you can use the provided nuts to tighten them down. At this point, you can start to reinstall the hood vents and pass the wire through the opening, but you wanna be careful that that doesn't get pinched. With that said, you wanna make sure that you put the mounting nut and the wiring cable back in the place before you finish up. Now, in order to run the Raxiom Harness, you'll have to gain access to the turn signal first, which you can do by pulling back the fender liner in the wheel well. Once you do, plug the Raxiom into the Turn Signal Harness and then into the Turn Signal itself.
Once you do that, fish the wire up to the back of the head light to the fender, run it across the firewall, and zip tie it to the hood hinge. To finish things off, you run the harness behind the hood liner and connect it to the hood vent mounted turn signals. You wanna make sure to secure any extra wiring with the provided zip ties. From start to finish, you'll be looking to spending about an hour for the install here, and I definitely give it a one out of three wrenches on the Difficulty meter because it is a pretty plug and play. Just to quickly wrap things up, guys, if you're '15-'16 GT owner out there and you're a fan of the iconic '67 or '68 Mustang styling, as well as the new California Special Hood styling, then the Amber Raxiom Hood Vent Mounted Turn Signal Lights might be for you, and you can get yours right here at AmericanMuscle.com
