Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

Hey, guys, I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, here with my quick review of the Raxiom Vector Smoked Tail Light available for your 2005 to 2009 Mustang. All right, guys, this video is gonna cover a few basic topics concerning the Vector Tail Lights here from Raxiom, basically what you can expect as far as light outputs, styling and functionality, what they're gonna be made of, and then finally, what you can expect when it comes time for the install. And honestly, guys, this one really couldn't get much easier. Tail lights on the '05 to '09 cars are essentially plug and play, and the Raxioms are gonna be no different. So expect a simple one out of three wrench job with more detail to come later on. First and foremost, this is definitely going to be a premium tail light option available for the '05 to '09 owners out there looking to take a break from the norm and step into a totally wild-looking tail light, completely different from the factory tail light in many different ways. Now this is gonna be a great choice for those of you who enjoy more of a smoked look, obviously as you can see here, and also for you guys out there who want to get into a modern LED taillight. Well, this is another cool tail light from Raxiom, of course, one of the industry leaders in producing stylish and functional lighting in addition to some pretty cool tech as well with some of their navigation units. Now, all their stuff is definitely built very well and it's all backed by a pretty solid two-year warranty. Guys, let's break down these lights, starting with the surface, right? So we got a modern tri-bar tail light design that has become very popular with today's Mustangs. Now this is a dark smoke lens here which a lot of us Mustang owners are always after. And underneath the smoke lens, you're gonna find clear tri-bar design. So that clear tri-bar design is actually going to be a 30 LED board which is done with a diffused light. It's gonna be a very attractive package when it's actually on, whether it be your tail lights, your break lights, or your turn signals. Going even further with the styling, guys, you're gonna see that Raxiom has incorporated the reverse portion of the tail lights in a way that's very sleek, blends very nicely with the total package. However, we have the reflector portion here as well. These things don't really offer anything in terms of functionality. They have to be there by law. Not my favorite, but overall, I don't think it's a deal breaker. Talked about the styling a little bit, let's talk about the functionality you can expect with the vectors here from Raxiom. Again, this is a 100% full LED light with the exception of the reverse light. That's something you will need to reuse if you want to or may I suggest checking out an LED reverse bulb just to kind of complete the look a little bit. So each of these bars here feature a 30 LED board. So you're getting 30, 60, 90 LEDs in total with these lights, and they are diffused. So it's gonna make for a very attractive kind of glow when these things are in action. The sequential turn signals are actually built in with the vector tail lights from Raxiom, so you don't need any extra harnesses or anything like that. You pretty much plug them in and you got that modern sequential styling. Now your break lights won't sequence. That's only reserved for the turn signals themselves, so just keep that in mind. But overall, guys, again, you're getting a dark smoke lens with this. The bright LEDs will definitely kind of counteract that a little bit, so you're still getting plenty of light output with these despite that smoked lens. We've talked about the basic styling you can expect with the vectors. We've talked about the LED functionality. How about the price? Well, like I mentioned earlier, this is definitely gonna be one of your more premium options when it comes to aftermarket tail lights here on the site. These things are gonna ring you up for over $400, definitely one of the most expensive options currently here at AM, even more so than the Gen 5 Tail Lights. However, what you're getting in return for that price tag is a very unique tail light, and you are getting that modern LED technology along with the built in sequential turn signal. So, overall, if you want something that's very unique, these are definitely a great choice. So we got materials, we got functionality, we've got price. Now let's switch gears. We'll talk about install for you. And tail lights on the '05 to '09 cars are very straightforward. There's really only three nuts holding the factory tail lights in place. You can knock those out with an 11 millimeter wrench. Then after that, you're looking at a total plug and play job. So for starters, basically crack the trunk open and remove the rear plastic trim that would otherwise cover the rear of the factory tail lights. Once that's out of the way, go ahead and get to work removing those three 11 millimeter bolts and then unplug the factory tail lights and get those out of the way. With the rack seams ready to go, simply plug those into your factory harness, switch over that reverse bulb and then reinstall the new Raxiom tail lights in reverse order, tightening up those 11 millimeter bolts as you go. That's pretty much it, guys. Again, this one's a very simple and straightforward job. So one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter is what you can expect here. You can probably have this one wrapped up in about an hour or two from start to finish. While you are gonna be paying a little bit more of a premium here for the vectors from Raxiom, you are getting a very modern tail light for your S197 in regards to overall styling and functionality, and that dark smoked lens should look good on just about any '05 to '09 car. So that's my review of the vector from Raxiom which you can find right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Modernized Styling. After having your Pony on the road for 7+ years, you might be craving a bit of visual modification. Swapping out your factory tail lights for a new, modernized style complete with bright, long-lasting LEDs will easily transform the rear of your 2005-2009 Mustang. Featuring a stealthy smoked lens with three white inner diffusers, this pair of Vector Tail Lights will stand out from the crowd and allow fellow commuters to easily see you. For added safety, these lights sequence when using turn signals and include three reflectors located along the bottom.

Sequential Turn Signals. These Smoked Vector Tails are designed with a very popular component that not only looks awesome, but supplies an added bit of safety when out cruising. When the turn signals are activated, they will sequence from the center light out and repeat until switched off. Please note that these lights do not sequence with the brake or hazard lights.

High Quality Construction. Crafted from high quality ABS plastic, each of these Vector Tail Lights feature a smoked outer lens, three white inner diffusers, black housings and 30 high intensity LEDs to provide brighter, longer lasting light. Rid your Pony of those weak incandescent bulbs and improve your driving experience with these sleek replacements.

Easy Plug and Play Installation. Assembled from state of the art electronic components, these Raxiom Vector Tail Lights utilize a simple plug-in connector that gets inserted into the stock wiring harness and the factory reverse bulb will be reused. This allows for a straight forward installation that lets you get back on the road in no time.

DOT Compliant. These Raxiom Vector Tail Lights will not only bring a fresh new look to your Mustang, but they also meet or exceed the strict guidelines set forth by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) making them legal for street use under compliance # QR1200176.

2-Year Full Warranty. Raxiom ensures quality craftsmanship by backing their Mustang Tail Lights with an Industry Leading 2-Year Full Warranty. Some exclusions may apply, please see manufacturer's warranty for details.

Application. This set of two Raxiom Smoked Vector Tail Lights with White Diffusers are specifically designed to fit all 2005 to 2009 Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt and Shelby GT500 models.

Big fan of Raxiom and its after market products for the Mustang. How did they get the lights to sequence during hazard lighting etc. in the video? The lights are worth the price if they serve each function.

LeftToSigh

  • The sequencing is built into the tail lights so they will serve that function automatically when the turn signals and hazards are being used.

    The Best Tail Lights on AM

    I bought these tail lights as soon as they came out. Just like most people that did the same, I received a faulty pair. I returned them and received a replacement pair and those were broken as well. I decided to return them and get my money back, then I saw that AM took them off of their website. About two weeks later they came back up and I bought them the day they came for sale again. I called AM to see if they can give me a discount because of the faulty pair and they did! The customer support here is so friendly and caring. I couldn't ask for any better. My third pair came in the mail very quickly and I installed them in less than 10 min. All I can say is WOAH! Sequentials work perfectly. They are bright and they look so AMAZING! No other tail light beat these smoked vector tail lights. One of the best styling mods I did for my mustang. Thank you AMERICAN MUSCLE!!!

    Looks great but doesn't work

    First set of these I received looked and worked great for about 2 week's before I started having problems. First the left side randomly went out but came back on after restarting my car, then one night both went out during a half hour drive home on I-95 at night, then the right one went out and never came back on. Second set I received wasn't even the correct set of tail lights. The sticker on the box said "Smoked Vector Tail Lights, White Diffusers (05-09 All)" but what was in the box was a set of the smoked Halo taillights for the 15-17 Mustangs. The third set I received the weather stripping on one light was peeling off, the plugs allowing you to use the lights without them sequencing were missing from both lights, and one of the green wires was split. Fourth set I received were somehow dusty inside the packaging and as soon as I saw this set was also missing the non-sequential plug I gave up and requested a refund. So much time and money was wasted on these, I am never ordering any kind of lights from Raxiom again.

    I was very excited to get them once I had them installed everything work properly visibility was excellent and they just look totally Bad A••!! They are a bit pricey, but I used an American muscle discount code. It helped a little, also I wished they came with the reverse LED bulb, that's why I gave it four stars. All in all you'll be very happy and it puts us grin on your face every time!!

    Disappointed for the first time

    They look great but I'm very disappointed because: A) Not sequential. Even though I specifically read that it was before I bought them. The previous product (gen5) tail lights were sequential plug n play. B) Raxiom didn't bother With LED reverse lights, unlike the (gen5) ones, they didn't even bother with new lightbulbs. Unfortunately, going from my Raxiom gen5 tail lights to these felt like a downgrade. Even though they do look great.

    Great set of tails for a new look!

    These taillights look amazing! The actual light diffusers have a pearly white look when they are off and make a crystal-like glow when they light up. Most importantly in the visibility department, they are very bright, especially the brake lights, and the sequential turn signals are neat. I also noticed that they sequentially light up when the brake lights and hazard lights come on, which is not an issue to me because my OEM lights with a sequential harness did the same thing, personally I like that anyway because it's catchy and drivers behind me will be more likely to notice it. These lights also have a stepped look to them like the new S550 mustangs, and boy does it look cool, it gives the lights a 3D look. The install was also very quick and easy, and the wiring harness fit the OEM power plugs perfectly. My only con is that the rubber seals that are supposed to seal up the hole for the wiring did not stay in the holes. I tried pushing on them pretty hard and they would stick for a moment, but the slightest move caused the rubber seal to fall back out. After looking closely, I noticed that the seals do not have any grooves in them to catch on the edge of the hole. Other than that, I highly recommend these tailights to anyone that wants a new style to their mustang!

    They look great, but are still unreliable

    The first pair of these that I bought was just after the item was put back on the site in June 2016, after being recalled for issues. The first set I got did not function properly (passenger turn signal would not sequence all the way and the lights would not turn on when the headlights or parking lights were switched on. Also, the license plate light would not turn on either). I returned them and AM sent me a second pair. This time both turn signals operated properly, but the lights still would not turn on when the headlights or parking lights were switched on, and the lights still prevented my license plate light from turning on. I experimented and learned that they would turn on, as long as I held the brake down while turning the headlights on. I have no explanation for why this seems to make them work. I'm hesitant about returning a second pair because the first pair I received had scratches on them (looked used). The second pair looks brand new, so I am considering taking my chances and hanging on to them, bugs and all. I've spent a lot on the AM site in recent years and these lights are no exception. As a customer paying $450 for an item, you expect it to work flawlessly...Really hoping an AM tech out there can communicate these issues to Raxiom.

    AMAZING TAIL LIGHTS LOOK FOR 2005-2009 BODY STYLE STANGs!

    They are crisp every time they light up and are as extremely bright as they are meant to be. The installation of these new tail-lights was very, very easy. To install these, you: Remove four plastic push-pins and two plastic fasteners to remove the trunk's rear plastic panel. Unplug the factory tail-light harness, remove the three 11MM nuts, and the OEM tail-lights slide right out. Next, while protecting your car's paint with a rag or something, rest the new tail-lights on your bumper and run the harness from the new tail-lights through the OEM grommet-hole. Insert the three studs through the mount holes, re-install the nuts. Plug in the new harness, make sure the excess wiring are secured to avoid any damage to it, and you are done! The best part is that they are True Plug-N-Play! No rewiring. No rerouting wires anywhere. But what I like the most is the smoked lenses which gives the car a more aggressive and sinister look. Raxiom did a phenomenal job with these lights and I would recommend them to anyone who would love a new better and aggressive look taillights on their 05-09 Stang. I promise that you would not be disappointed!

    The lights are easy to install and worth the purchase price.They mimic the 2015 lights and I was waiting for Raxiom to produce them. I would prefer the light portion to have some red in them. That is why I gave them 4 stars and not 5. This is a mater of taste.They look good off as well.

    Simply outstanding lights (and I actually have them)

    Let me begin by saying unlike most of the reviews posted so far, I've actually purchased and installed a set of these lights (delivered 6/8). I replaced a set of Raxiom Gen5 lights with these (loved the Gen5's, but the strong "3 bar" styling of these is what I've always wanted on the car. Install is typical for a light set on an S197. Take the inner trunk panel off, 3 bots a grommet and electrical plug. Easy-peasy, but don't forget to transfer the existing reverse light bulbs, which are not included, I installed Phillips LED units, which look and functions great, but are a tight fit through the socket holes on the lights. The appearance of the lights is simply outstanding, with a creamy red glow and no individual led segments visible. Brake lights are more than bright enough, and sequencing looks great. Honestly these are about as close to perfect as one could hope. One observation, each light unto has a small 3 wire pigtail which doesn't connect to anything. I wonder if maybe this is intended for a communication cable side to side to prevent the single sequence when brakes are depressed (I happen to prefer that sequence to wake up other drivers) but I haven't been able to confirm its purpose with AM yet. Overall, if you want quality light assemblies that are at the same time ultra modern and highly evocative of the late 60's ponies, I don't think you can do better. I will post up pics to the product page.
