Review & Install Video
Hey, guys. Adam here with americanmuscle.com. Today I'm bringing you a quick overview and installation of the Raxiom Reverse Light LED Conversion Kit available for all 2005 to 2009 Mustangs. So in this video, of course, I'll be going over the styling and appearance you can expect when adding this LED conversion kit to your reverse lights from Raxiom. I'll touch on the materials and construction as well as the installation, which I'll finish off the video with. But I'll tell you upfront here. It will get a very simple one out of three wrenches on our difficult meter making it a direct plug and play install. The Raxiom Reverse Light LED Conversion Kit will be for any '05 to '09 Mustang owner who's looking to pick up a brighter, whiter, and more attractive LED bulb for the reverse light housing in order to gain better visibility on the road. This is also for someone who's looking to save money instead of picking up an HID conversion kit for a busted or worn out bulb, and an LED conversion kit is going to be the perfect alternative.
So when we're talking about an LED conversion kit such as this for your reverse light, mainly it comes down to styling and appearance, but of course, there's a little bit of functionality in there as well. It makes it a lot easier to spot when you're throwing your car into reverse, so at night, there's some benefit there. As far as the styling and appearance goes, it will be brighter, it will be whiter, and it's overall just more attractive than your factory option which, after a while, can turn just a little bit yellow and maybe worn out a bit.
As far as materials and construction goes here, this one uses, as far as technology's concerned, a 3-chip 50/50 SMD power saving technology that actually consumes one-tenth of the amount of power compared to the factory option and lasts for up to 100,000 hours. Not something a lot of the other options on the market can boast. Now, on top of that, this thing is actually going to be a wedge-style housing that fits directly into your factory housing giving you a perfect plug and play fitment.
As far as pricing is concerned, you do want to expect to be spending just a little bit more than your factory replacement bulbs. Now, I know that they're super small, and you kind of would expect a pretty small price tag, but $40 gets you everything you see here, these two bulbs for each of your reverse lights. Comparing this price to the price of HID kits that might be on the market you could see elsewhere, this is definitely gonna be a fraction of the cost. LED kits are definitely gonna burn a lot brighter, they're gonna be a lot safer compared to the HIDs, and obviously, compared to stock, they're just overall an upgrade.
Pushing through to the installation portion, since they are that wedge-style housing and they're a perfect fit for the factory housing, it's gonna be a direct plug and play. Now overall it will get a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, shouldn't take you longer than a half hour to complete.
All you'd have to do is pop open your trunk, remove some of that trunk liner to gain access to the back of your taillights. Once you do so, just pull out that factory light bulb, swap it out for the LED conversion which will pop right into the housing, and it'll plug directly into your factory wiring harness. Overall, repeat that process for the opposite side, and you're good to go. One out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, and like I said, thirty minutes tops.
Just to wrap things up here, if you're the owner of a 2005 to 2009 Mustang, you might be looking for a way to swap out your factory reverse lightbulb for a brighter, whiter, and more attractive finish, and overall help your visibility at that. In which case, the Raxiom Reverse Light LED Conversion Kit is available right here at americanmuscle.com.
