    Review & Install Video

    Hey everyone, Justin from, and today I have with me a very aggressive set of dark smoked headlights for all ’99-’04 Mustangs. That aggressive look is achieved by pairing the one-piece headlight factory design and black housing with a very dark smoked lens that will instantly transform the front end of any ride. Before, in order to achieve a look this dark, you had to experiment with dyes or tint. If you’ve ever messed with any of those options before, you know achieving a perfect outcome can be tricky at best. Installing a new set of headlights in these New Edge Mustangs is an absolute breeze and it should take you no more than 30 minutes using no tools whatsoever. The first step is to remove the two mounting tabs holding your factory headlights in place, unplug the harness, and reinstall these new dark smoked headlights in reverse order. As always, when installing new headlights, don’t forget to properly align them so you don’t blind oncoming traffic. Due to the extremely dark nature of these headlights, we here at AmericanMuscle highly recommend upgrading to a quality bulb from either Raxiom or Solvania, just to improve your nighttime visibility. So if you want to completely black out your ride for that aggressive look but don’t want to mess with tints or dyes, then these dark smoked headlights for your ’99-’04 Mustang would be a great place to start.

    Sleek Styling. These Axial Mustang Headlights have stealthy smoked lenses to give any 1999-2004 mustang an aggressive appearance on the street or the strip. And the one piece design fits perfectly into the stock location for a clean sleek look.

    Improves Visibility. Now you can improve your night visibility and mustangs looks just by replacing your old weathered and scratched stock headlights with a brand new set of headlights from Axial.

    Bulb application. These Axial Headlights require dual element 9007 bulbs for high/low beams (sold separately). AmericanMuscle recommends high quality 9007 replacement bulbs from Raxiom and Sylvania. See the drop down menu option above to select a new set of bulbs to go with your new headlights.

    My son got these for his car a little over a year ago and now the tint is peeling off !! why are they doing that?????


    • We are sorry to hear that you and your son are experiencing issues with the Axial Dark Smoked Headlights. The headlight housings can get fairly hot, and along with road debris, and environmental conditions, the tint may begin to deteriorate. To prevent this deterioration we would highly recommend applying a UV repelling coating that is safe for tint. If the tint is far beyond saving, please give us a call or email and we would be more than happy to assist you!

    Are these legal in NY, or in any state?


    • We recommend consulting with local authorities on the legality of the Axial Dark Smoked Headlights, as this will vary from state to state, and we do not have a comprehensive list of legality in various states.

    I've had these headlights roughly a year and a half, the shiny new look has already faded to a dull rough grey surface. Is there anything that can restore these lights to new?


    • These Axial Dark Smoked Headlights along with any headlight can be restored by a trusted local detail shop. There are some headlight restoration kits out on the market, however, we would recommend using extreme caution as it could further damage the light.

    If I cut the covers out will my raxiom led shine better?


    • We do not recommend cutting the lenses on the Headlights. A hole will allow moisture to get inside the housing and could cause the bulbs to blow out.

      2004 Mach 1 (Oxford White) These look bad a$$ especially if you remove the grill. Any color Stang will look menacing.with this set up. A couple of notes though: Make sure you seal these or any aftermarket lights. Take your time and maybe practice laying down a couple of beads on a scrap piece of carboard or something - don't screw this up. Remember how money you spent one these? Take your friggin' time and do it right, allow the seal time cure properly in your room for a day - Hey, you've waited this long right? The extra time and effort will definately show and it'll keep them from fogging up and costing the extra expense of going through $30 - $50 sets of light bulbs. Speaking of light bulbs: Heed the Warning: NEVER touch the bulbs with your fingers - use latex gloves or a good clean cloth towel. Buy the brightest lights available, they ARE expensive, you really want to start half-a$$ing now??? Set the light beams properly, you'll be able to see just fine on the darkest roads.

      Love the lights

      I have an '02 Sonic Blue V6. My stock headlights eventually became foggy. I had been wanting the clear chrome headlights but they had been discontinued on this website. So, I went ahead and got the smoke headlights and I am very happy with them. The installation is overly easy, I found the adhesive easily, I made sure I sealed the light casings well. I used 2 full tubes squeezed 'til empty. Be careful exchanging bulbs or if you buy new ones be sure to use latex gloves or you just might ruin your bulbs. Before installing be sure to let your adhesive dry, don't want that stuff getting on your car. Also, I recommend applying the adhesive outdoors, the stuff has a very strong odor. I'll post pictures soon. I have had the lights for a few months now I just haven't taken the time to capture pictures and post them yet. Not that it is needed, lol, there are lots of pictures already on here.

      THE GOOD SIDE: 1. Smooth and shiny. 2. Easy to install. 3. Gives your car improved looks. THE BAD SIDE: 1. No manufacturer's warranty at all. 2. Not a perfect fit; there is a gap left between the car body and the lamps. 3. No bulb collar (or whatever you call the part that holds the bulb) only a temporary plug that seems to be there only to keep debris out during shipping. You have to use the OEM collar that came with your original lights. 4. You will have to use the OEM ring that holds the OEM bulb collar as well. 5. No bulbs of any kind are included. 6. Most likely you will need to purchase HID lights in order to have sufficient light to drive at night. Of course, this point is only an opinion. 7. Optionally, you follow the guide on how to seal your lights to help prevent condensation from entering the case. Since they don't come with warranty, it would be a good option to take.

      Dark Smoked Headlights

      WOW! I really love these headlights! They did not take long to install either. Took about 20-30 minutes per light. I was debating between the dark smoked and the projector headlights. I am sooo glad I got the dark smoked. They really make my car look "mean". But do get the luminics-9007-pure-white bulbs. They really do make a difference. You will love them.

      Had them for one year...

      I have had these headlights for a little over a year. They still look great with the exception of a bit ot plastic that seems to be flaking/peeling away. They are still nice and clear. The instuctions provided by AM's website were excellent and I followed the advice on sealing the headlights. I have never once had condensation build up inside of them. I would definitley buy these again, but I wish they would have not started to peel so soon after a year.

      Sassy Look

      These headlights look phenomenal. Definitely take the time to seal them. I bought two tubes of the RTV sealant, but only used about 3/4ths of one tube. I don't know what these other people were using TWO whole tubes for. I guess if you're messy and want to over do it, get two. The install was extremely easy. I picked up new amber bulbs for the turn signals because my old ones had started to flake. These headlights do decrease the amount of light coming through them quite a bit. I would recommend the high end Sylvania bulbs or an HID kit. I have 6k HIDs on mine and I'd say it took about 30% brightness away. The silver mustang with the grille delete and dark tint is mine. I put up two pictures, one with HID's on, one with them off. Overall, the prep time took about 30 - 45 minutes, then I let the sealant dry for about 20 hours, 10 of those being high heat. The install time was maybe thirty minutes after I had my new bulbs. These headlights fit perfectly! You might want to check and see if they are legal in your state though. Even if they aren't, they are worth the risk of a ticket for how sick they look.

      These head lamps are amazing! They really compliment my mustang and all of the other black attributes on it. Only suggestion if one is planning on installing these is to buy brighter bulbs; personally I went with the 9007's and they're great!

      REALLY changes the appearance!

      First of all, I have 8000k HID bulbs installed, so I did not notice a change in light output as opposed to my previous clear chrome headlights. Head on though, I don't have anyone flash me anymore because they think my high beams are on - which is a definite plus!!! Fitment was VERY tight, but everything lines up fine. Remember to seal them with clear or black silicone to prevent condensation. As they age, you will most likely have to reapply. I did some research and read that the tint on these tends to flake off in about a year (which, believe it or not, happened to my CLEAR ones as well!). So I followed some instructions I found about making a UV protective layer to prevent this (1 part mineral spirits, 1 part Minwax indoor/outdoor Helmsman spar urethane)...and they look fabulous so far! For the price, you can't beat these - thanks AM!

      Too dark to see at night with out HID's

      I could not see very well with stock bulbs or the silver star bulbs. I think you need HID's but thats another $200. I liked the way they looked but did not like the return policy. Cannot return once installed but you do not know if you can see at night until installed. $180 down the drain because they are not safe for driving at night.

      I purchased the lights in June 2011 for my 2004 Mustang GT Convertible. The original lights were scratched and badly worn so I was excited to replace them with the new darker lens. The install was really easy. The black rubber trim needed some finessing to seal closely to the cars fender. When finished it looked great but i've had a problem with them leaking and moisture build up.
