Hey, what's going on, guys? Adam here with AmericanMuscle.com. Today, I'm bringing you a detailed overview of the Raxiom Red LED Reverse Light fitting all 2015 and newer Mustangs. The Raxiom Red LED Reverse Light is going to be for all 2015 and newer Mustang owners out there looking to replace the factory boring reverse light with a completely redesigned LED light that actually works in conjunction with your running lights. Now, Raxiom is really the industry leader in high-performance lighting technology, so it's a no-brainer to look in their direction when replacing anything lighting on your Mustang.Now, in this case, you're replacing your boring factory reverse light with a brighter, whiter LED replacement. Now, what sets this kit apart from the rest is that you can actually splice it into your vehicle's wiring harness to work in conjunction with your running lights, as you could see with this big red LED bar directly in the middle.I will say that this design from Raxiom is not gonna be for everybody, as it does completely redesign and change the look of the current reverse light, giving it a more unique design for your rear end. Now, if you're not interested, you can check out some of the other LED conversion bulbs for your current reverse light. But if you are interested, this particular option has a clear lens with a red bar going over here with a very unique design that offers a red LED for your running lights, as well as nine individual white reverse lights that obviously work in conjunction with your reverse lock out. Now, with that said, if you are interested, there is this option. There's also a smoked option that has a smoked lens and offers a white bar across with a red LED inside.Now, swapping out your factory reverse light bulb for an LED conversion such as this one can be very beneficial for the guys out there running a backup camera. Now, for the backup camera, the brighter, whiter LEDs can be especially useful for you at night, offering better visibility and overall better safety options. Now, the way this system works is very simple. The nine white LEDs are going to work in conjunction with your reverse light, just the same way your factory one does, making it a direct plug-and-play with this connector plugging into your factory harness. Now, like I said earlier, what makes this setup different is the running light option. Now, the big red bar you see directly in the middle with that design is actually going to splice into your factory running light by using a red and black wire we have here. Now, it's a very simple installation job. It includes everything necessary to get it done, and it can be for anybody to do in the driveway at home. I do wanna point out that this was made from OEM-quality material, so you don't have to worry about a cheap quality. It's made of the same stuff that your factory reverse light was made of in your S550 already. Price-wise for the Raxiom Red LED Reverse Light Kit, you can expect to be spending just about $150 which, in my opinion, is a very reasonable price to completely change the look of your reverse lighting system if you guys are into this design here.For the installation, like I said, is going to be very simple and very straightforward. Will require a little bit of splicing, but we'll to that in a little bit, something anybody can do in the driveway at home, again. Now, the only tools you're gonna need, a ratchet and a socket set, and you won't even have to lift the car off the ground for this one. So kick things off, you'll remove the bolts in the middle of your rear valance, just to gain access to your factory reverse light. So you wanna pull down on that rear valance, just to gain enough access to get your ratchet in to remove the factory reverse light, which is held on by two bolts. So once you get that off the connector, you can put that aside. Now, at this point, you can install the Raxiom reverse light in its place using the factory bolts you just removed, and we're gonna leave the wiring hanging down at this point. Now, once you get the connectors all together from the Raxiom lights into the factory harness, you can feed the green and black wires up through the hole in the trunk back into the vehicle. Once you get the two wires up into your trunk, you can pop your trunk open and actually take off the liners on one of the tail lights, gaining access to the power wire and ground wire. Once you locate your power wire, you're gonna splice in using the quick splice connectors provided in the kit. Splice the green wire into your power wire, your black wire into your ground wire, making sure all that's connected properly and put your trunk liners back together.Overall, you're definitely looking at a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter and looking at spending about an hour or so of time in the driveway at home. Definitely something anybody can do with a little bit of time.So just to quickly wrap things up, guys, if you're the owner of a 2015 or newer Mustang and you're looking for a very inexpensive way to change up the look of your rear end by switching out that factory stock reverse lighting, you might wanna check out the Raxiom Red LED Reverse Light, always available right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Looks great, install was rough
This reverse light is pretty awesome, really glad I got it on black Friday sale, I had wanted it for awhile and glad I got it. It looks great installed and when its running, but the install was a pain. The instructions and video mention nothing about the top screw which many of the other reviews have also mentioned, it was absolutely brutal to get the screw out and then to screw the new one back in, absolutely brutal. It took multiple hours to get the reverse light out and then the new one installed. I would recommend getting the light but beware that it will take a long time to install and it is a rough install, read the other reviews for more details on what to expect. Also, when i installed it got set in sort of crooked with the top left side drooping a little, I cannot figure out how or why it is drooped but it looks fine so I will let it be without messing with it anymore cuz of how difficult it is to install. Also, when putting the new light in be very careful of placing the light into the metal frame as I scratched mine pretty good just putting it into the frame to be screwed in, beware of that and try not to scratch yours. Also, with the wires, I connected into the left tail light not the right. Recommend but be careful during install and know what you are getting in to.Helpful (0)

Raxiom Smoked LED Reverse Light w/ White Diffuser
Install was simple except for the top two screws. White LEDs work great but the red LED is very dim. And does not light up with break. It only rights up with running but again, very low output. Overall aesthetic wise it looks great.Helpful (0)

Baby got back
Just awesome! Easy to install but I highly recommend you watch a few videos on YouTube so you know about the notorious top bolts. Splicing tabs DO WORK just make sure you have both wires lined up and use needle nose pliers to depress the metal clip.Helpful (0)

This raxiom reverse light/running light with the red diffuser is definitely a game changer. It stands out. Both the running light but also the led reverse bulbs look great. Glad I bought this item. I would recommend buying this with the RTR diffuser to complete the whole rear end. That's what I did.Helpful (0)
Do you know where a good place to find the wiring harness labels is? My package did not come with the easy splice kits and is having to now be done by hand by myself after going to a hardware store to buy parts.
There will not be any labels that are usable on the OEM harness. Install directions can be seen at the link below: https://lib.americanmuscle.com/files/390492-cust.pdf
Does this work with the brake light as well?
This kit is only for the reverse light and running light. It does not affect the other braking lights.
I’ve seen people have it on their 18, so why do you guys put that it wont work on 18-19’ Mustang?
We do not confirm fitment on '18 or newer models. Owners may have modified this to fit their application, but we cannot advise on this.
I know it say 15-17 models but I’ve actually seen a few 2018 and 2019 models with this type of reverse light. Is it possible to put this on my car or do you believe they have a newer version of this for the 18-19?
This Raxiom Smoked LED Reverse Light will not fit 2018 and 2019 models. At this time we are unaware of an 18-19 version available.
Does it fit a shelby gt350?
Yes, this kit will fit a 2015-2017 Shelby GT350
This would be only for the 15-17 models and would not work on the 18 models. As of right now, we would not have anything for the 18s just yet.
Unfortunately this reverse light kit will not fit 2018 or newer Mustang models.
This kit is designed solely for the reverse light and running light. It will not affect the other braking lights.
Yes, this Raxiom Reverse Light will work with the Roush Rear Valance.
When installing the Raxiom Smoked LED Reverse Light, if using the included quick splice connectors, it is sometimes necessary to squeeze the metal tab down with pliers to ensure it properly makes contact.
The Raxiom Smoked LED Reverse Light is compatible with the MP Concepts GT350 Style Rear Bumper and Diffuser Kit.
You will want to splice into the tail light wiring to install the Raxiom Smoked LED Reverse Light w/ Red Diffuser . You can fined more details, and pictures in the install guide linked below: https://lib.americanmuscle.com/files/390492-cust.pdf
The Raxiom Smoked LED Reverse Light does not replace the 3rd Brake light, or affect it's function in any way.
The difference is the color of the diffuser light when not powered. This Raxiom Smoked LED Reverse Light with Red Diffuser, the red diffuser is noticeably red without power, whereas the same LED light with white diffuser only shows as red when connected to the running lights and is receiving power.
The Raxiom Smoked Reverse Light and Diffuser does not have the flashing and strobe action that most laws require for a light to be considered illegal. Additionally, the white light only shows when the car is engaged in reverse, and the red LED only shows through if you wire it up to your running lamps.
