Review & Install Video

Hey, guys, Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com here with the Raxiom Icon LED Tail Lights for '96 to '98 SN95 Mustangs. The Raxiom Icon LED Tail Lights are a great option for those SN95 owners out there that are looking to update the exterior of their car with a more modern exterior lighting. These tail lights offer more of a custom, brighter LED lighting setup as opposed to the plain and unappealing stock look. The factory tail lights and bulbs can give a boring stock and unappealing vibe so changing up the tail lights can really go a long way for the SN95. These tail lights are going to make a pretty big difference in the appearance of the car, and we're going to install these in a few minutes so you can see what I'm talking about. But these lights have smoked lenses so they're gonna have what I consider more of a stealthy and smooth look. But the LED lighting is really going to be bright through the lenses. This means that you can have a clean and smoked look during the day but the lights are still going to be highly visible both at night and during the day thanks to the LED running light rings so you can have the best of both worlds. So instead of having the entire tail light illuminated as a running light, like the factory set up does, these tail lights have LED running light rings around each section of the tail light. And obviously, when you hit the brakes the middle portions of the sections will light up. So keeping the running lights and brake lights separated is what creates more of that modern multi-dimensional look that these lights have. You've also got white LED reverse lights in the lower portion here as well. It kind of goes without saying that the LED bulbs are going to be brighter than your factory lighting, like I previously mentioned, so they're going to improve lighting along with appearance. This can be considered a mod that has both form and function. The LED tail lights will be brighter and have a nicer look than the factory bulbs and they're going to work on all '96 and '98 Mustangs no matter which model you have. Another thing that I do want to note, though, is that switching over to the LED lighting will have an effect on you turn signals. They're going to blink differently at a much faster speed unless you pick up a new turn signal flasher, which will modify the signal so that it blinks normally at the factory speed. These tail lights are also compatible with a Raxiom sequential tail light harness which a lot of you might already have. They're compatible with the harness because they're not going to come with new brake light bulbs so you can reuse the stock bulbs. This will be the only part of the tail lights that aren't LED. With that being said, if you would like the entire tail light to have LED bulbs, you do have the option of upgrading bulbs to the Raxiom LED tail light bulbs so you can have a complete LED set up. If you choose to do this upgrade, the LED tail light bulbs will require the use of the modified turn signal flasher. And if you would like a sequential tail light kit, you just need to make sure that you pick up the kit that'll work with the LED bulbs. A standard bulb sequential kit will not work with LED bulbs. As far as price, you're looking at spending about $350 for these tail lights, which is definitely on the more expensive side of the tail light offering for the '96 to '98 but you have to remember the LED lighting upgrade, the sequential capability and then there's always the full two-year warranty that Raxiom offers. And these are also a 100% plug-and-play upgrade, which makes for very easy install. Plug-and-play means no cutting, splicing or even any resistors are required. So the install doesn't get any easier here. You're looking at a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter and you can figure on spending about an hour or so to get the install completed. All that you're gonna have to do for the install is remove the trunk insulation by pulling the retaining clips so you can have access to the four nuts that are holding the tail light into place. Once the nuts are removed you can pull the light assembly away from the car. You remove the bulbs by just twisting them and since you're going to install the tail lights with the factory bulbs, we're going to leave them in the car. After that, it's as simple as locking the bulbs into the new housings, plugging in the LED harness, and placing the housings back into the car. I'd be sure to test these out before you take off anywhere since you want to make sure that they work properly. So just make sure they light up as they're supposed to and the turn signals work as well. Wrapping things up here, Raxiom's Icon LED tail lights are a simple upgrade that can provide some big appearance changes. They are smoked lenses and LED running light rings, but they are fully LED capable and will work with a sequential tail light harness as well. They're also very easy to install and you can check them out more online right here at AmericanMuscle.com

Iconic Styling. Bring your 1996-1998 Mustang into the 21st Century with a set of Raxiom Icon Tail Lights. These Raxiom Tail Lights will add the bold iconic styling of the fifth generation Mustang to your very own ride. Featuring built-in modern LED technology that is used for both the reverse and running light rings, these Raxiom Icon Tail Lights will dramatically transform the appearance of your SN95 Mustang.

Modern Electronics. Raxiom Icon LED Tail Lights are manufactured using state of the art LED electronic components with a simple plug-in connector that easily inserts into the stock wiring (or Raxiom sequential) tail light harness for a simple straight forward installation.

Additional Safety. The high intensity LED running light rings of these Raxion Icon Tail Lights not only look great, but they also improve your driving safety as they are much brighter than the standard factory incandescent bulbs making sure you are clearly seen at night.

Sequential Harness Compatible. These Raxiom Icon LED Tail Lights are designed to work with your existing Raxiom Sequential Tail Light Harness to give your SN95 Pony the high tech styling of the late model Mustangs.

Recommended Sequential Upgrade. If you would like a slower speed for the sequence of your tail lights to get that modern muscle car styling, combine this sequential tail light kit with the Raxiom Turn Signal Flasher V1 (For Incandescent Bulbs) or Raxiom Turn Signal Flasher V2 (For LED Bulbs).

DOT Compliant. Raxiom Icon LED Tail Lights not only improve the appearance of your Mustang, but they also meet or exceed the strict guidelines set forth by the U.S. Department of transportation (DOT) making them DOT compliant under compliance# QR1300191.

Full Warranty. Raxiom features an "Industry Leading 2 Year Full Warranty".

Application. This set of two Raxiom Icon LED Tail Lights are specifically designed to fit 1994 to 1998 V6, GT and SVT Cobra Mustangs. Driver and passenger side tail lights are included.

Application Note. These Raxiom Tail Lights can be used on 1994-1995 Mustangs when installed with a tail light wiring harness from any 1996-1998 Mustang.

Technical Note. Bulbs are not included. These tail lights reuse the stock bulbs or you can upgrade to Raxiom LED Tail Light Bulbs. Raxiom LED Tail Light Bulbs will require the use of a Raxiom Modified Turn Signal Flasher for proper operation.

I am trying to get a 95 GT just waiting on the money. I do not like the stock tail lights though and these are what I am currently looking at. Question is! What is the harness I keep hearing about? is it a wire I can find here on the website or it is something more than just the wiring? I do not know much about tail lights or the electrical side of cars.

JasonH

  • The tail light wiring harness comes from the body wiring to the tail lights and bulbs. Due to differences in bulb sockets, the 96-98 harness is needed for a 94-95 mustang with most aftermarket tail lights. This can be purchased from a junk yard, or an aftermarket sequential tail light harness can be used to replace the OEM harnesses.

I installed these in my 94 GT and I have a harness from a 96-98 car for the 3 bulbs but ever since I installed these Raxiom lights only the middle and inside bulbs light up when I hit the brakes instead of all 3. Any ideas? I did have all 6 factory bulbs at first with the stock tail lights but when I put the Raxiom lights in I changed all 6 to LED lights with a Diode Dynamics flasher modifier.

  • Even with all the correct wiring and a correct installation, LED lights can act funky sometimes when installed to the Mustangs. With that said, we would only be able to guarantee fitment and compatibility with 96-98 Mustangs, but I would suggest contacting American Muscle customer support as they would be able to help trouble shoot the issue.

How many bulbs are needed for the brakelights? 3?

ALBINOvDINO

  • That is correct, 3 total bulbs are needed for the lights for the Raxiom Icon LED Tail Light for the brake/parking lights. There is also 1 bulb needed for the reverse lights.

Are you able to run these taillights in a 1995 mustang GT with the sequential harness you supply....or do you still need the 96-98 taillight wiring harness? There isn't a clear answer. I would be interested in purchasing, but if it requires any butchering to the factory harness, then I'm not interested. Please advise...

for these Tail lights what if I want the turn signals to be amber as I am in the United kingdom, how difficult would it be to convert them to amber turn signals?

    A Great Upgrade

    These lights are an excellent up grade and will enhance any SN-95. Much more visible in the day time than the previous smoked raxiom taillights I had. Gives the car a great modern look. They are a little pricey, but, one of the best up grades I have put on the car as of late.

    Wow

    There's tail lights look way better than my original horizontal or the verticle smoked that I bought originally. The only downside is that with the regular bulbs the brake lights themselves are a little dim and hard to see compared to the led rings.

    Purchased them, had them two days later. Install is very simple. Pretty much plug and play. The reverse has its own set of LEDs so you won't even need a reverse bulb. Install took 30-45 minutes. Really upgraded the back end.
