    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    If you're looking to take a break from the boring factory-style headlights in your '05 to '09 Mustang, then you might wanna consider the Axial Smoked options here, loaded with the CCFL Halos. Now, these DOT approved lights will combine the very aggressive smoked lens on with that bright white CCFL Halo ring off or right around that $200 price point for the pair. Now, installation will involve the smallest bit of wiring here in order to get everything up and running. So, therefore, the site is gonna not just own up to a soft two to three wrenches on the difficulty meter and take you about an hour or so to knock out from start to finish. And if you guys are curious about what kind of wiring is involved, just hang with me for a bit and we'll walk you through the job later in the video. So, the Axials that we have here will feature a two-pronged approach to spicing up the headlights on that early S-197. Now, first and foremost, you're getting that smoke blend, right?Now, I don't have to tell you guys that smoked lights in Mustangs just go together perfectly and, by itself, this feature will be enough to radically change up the appearance of the front end alone. But then factor in the CCFL Halos and that officially takes these lights from mild to wild, which some owners might like others, maybe not so much. Now, if you are into this look, here's what you guys can expect, a bright white halo or ring that's going to illuminate here around the headlight bulb or reflector area when those parking lights are switched on. And that halo is gonna remain on even when your headlights are switched on. And, hey, if you're really wanna make a statement, then you might want to consider pairing these up with a CCFL fog light option, which we do have a few here on the site to choose from as well. Now, as far as your actual bulbs here with the Axials, well, guess what? They do kick in a brand new set of dual elements, each 13 style bulbs.But if you do have a little bit of worry about light output shining through those dark smoked lenses, well, that's something you can always upgrade down the road to something brighter, such as an LED option or something similar. Now, also quick heads-up guys, these things have been both DOT and SAE approved, meaning they are legal for use in all 50 states and again are sold in sets of two.But now let's segue into the installation as promised earlier and, honestly, this one won't be too bad even given the small amount of wiring needed. But as always, to give you a better idea of what I'm talking about, here's a detailed walkthrough along with your quick tool breakdown.The tools used for this install are quarter-inch ratchet, cordless impact driver, 10-millimeter socket, five and a half millimeter socket, a Phillips head screwdriver and a clip removal tool. So, the first step of this install is gonna be to get underneath the hood and to remove the radiator cover at the top in order to get access to the screws and bolts necessary for removing the front bumper.Next, I'm gonna use a clip tool to remove the push pins that hold the rad cover down. Now, I'm gonna use the 10-millimeter socket to remove these two upper bumper bolts. As you can see, I removed the front wheel to gain access to the inner fender liner. I did this to get access to these three screws and these three clips that hold the fender liner in the front to the bumper so I can peel this back and get access to the bolts behind it. Now that I've peeled back my fender liner, I can get access to these two 10-millimeter nuts from the back of the bumper. I can also get to my two plugs that are a little further in. Now, I'm gonna repeat that same process on the driver side. Before I can remove the bumper, I'm gonna pull the three bolts at the back of the belly pan so that I can remove everything all at once. With everything unbolted, I can remove my front bumper assembly. But while I do so, I have to make sure that I either unplug or unclip my fog lights from the light bulbs themselves.There are three bolts that hold the headlights to the vehicle. There are two at the bottom and one at the top. I'm gonna use the 10-millimeter socket to remove those three bulbs and then unplug the connectors from the back. In order to make the halos for these headlights work, I'm gonna need to tap into the running light circuit. I peeled back the looming on the running white wires and I'm gonna tap my power into the red and white wire on the driver side and the black wire also on the driver side. I'll use the provided vampire clips to tap into those two circuits before I install my headlights. Now, I'll just install my power wire from my halo into the factory power wire for the running light and use the vampire clip to close them together. And then I will repeat this with the ground wire. Now, I can feel the double stick tape on the back of the resistor block for the headlights and stick it to my inner frame rail before I make my headlight connection and reinstall the new headlight.Now, I'm gonna repeat the process on the passenger side and make the same electrical connections I did on the driver side. Now, I've got all my electrical connections made and I tested my lights before I go to throw my front bumper back on to make sure that everything works before I button it up. Make sure that you plug your fog lights back in before you install your bumper. Once the bumper's in, you will not be able to access the fog light bulbs.And that's gonna wrap up this review and install for the Axial Smoked Headlights with Halos for your '05 to '09 Mustang. Thanks for watching and, for all things Mustang, keep it right here at americanmuscle.com.

        So when I buy this product is just one headlight $189.99 or is it the pair as in the left headlight and the right headlight for $189.99?

        • The $189.99 price that is shown for the Axial Smoked Headlights is for the driver and passenger side headlights together.

        I see that it says these are not meant to be run on cars with DRL's. What is the reason for that? I would like to buy these but my province here in Canada requires all cars older than 2005 to be equipped with working DRL's

        • The Axial Smoked Headlights do not have the necessary components to work as DRLs as well. So they will not be compatible with the stock DRL system in your vehicle.

        Will I be able to see clearly at night ?

        • The Smoked Headlights - CCFL Halo are a little dark, and if night time visibility is a concern, I would highly recommend an upgraded low/high beam bulb, such as a Sylvania bulb.

        Helpful (6)

        I have HID headlamps and understand these smoked halo headlamps cannot be used as a direct replacement and that the connectors are different. Is there an electrical difference between the lights? Can I replace the wiring harness connector with the right type and then plug in the smoked halos?

        • Installing the Axial Smoked Headlights into a car equipped with HID's will require significant rewiring to allow the use of halogen bulbs. The Connector is wired to a ballast, which then wires to and controls the headlamps in HID equipped cars, as opposed to halogen cars which plug directly into the bulb.

        White or Blue? So many of the consumer pics show these (this question applies to the CCFL fog lights, too) as glowing white, and some(like your video) show blue. so what are they really? I'm hoping white.... Thanks

        • They are white. It has a hair of blue-ish look at certain lighting however it is definitely a noticeable white.

            Look great!

            These headlights look really good on my 06. The only complaint that I have is the manufacturer of the light sent the wrong size vampire clips and they were completely useless. So that added some time to the install because I had to wire the halo's into the running lights.

            Great for show purposes

            They look mean and immediately add an aggressive look to my S197 but the lights don’t sit well and the bulbs that come with them aren’t that good either. The the lights are sort of angled towards the ground which hinders the view at night

            Sharp and Clean!

            I was a little leary in purchasing these. I like to keep some of the stock styling and not go too crazy, but I have to tell you that these really make the body and stance pop! I'm happy in their fitment and plan to also upgrade the fog lights to halos as well!

            Cool headlights.

            Exelent product while it lasted. Look great not to bad to install, not a year into the lights and the halo on the driver side went out. Also for this headlights there is no ballast or halo replacement, light went out have to buy another pair. They should come with some sorth of replacement warranty or something. But enjoyed while they lasted.

            Look amazing awfully made

            Got these super excited to put them in hardest thing was taking off bumper took about 3 hours for install with the help of a friend. Everything was easy got them in put everything back on just to realize they don’t fit perfect the leave a gap between bumper and headlight. But it’s not to bad the worst thing is at night the lights point at the ground you can’t see anything without brights I go to adjust it barely moves at all then the plastic adjuster just breaks never moved the light poorly made and very upset bc I must use brights when I drive now. The only thing positive is they look good

            Complete disappointment

            The body shop ordered then installed these headlights when the body work was done. The halo on one only lit halfway around. When called, AM customer service said they were past the 30 day warranty period and they couldn’t help. Really? They were just installed and defective! With all the other problems I’ve had with AM, I’ll never order or recommend them for anything!!!

            Great headlights, BETTER THAN ORACLE

            Install was a bit under-exaggerated and was slightly difficult but that was most likely due to the setup i was dealt with at the time of installation, overall the lights work great my sister loves them and they are a steal for not only the price but functionality i personally think they are better than Oracle headlights and they're $500!!! if your looking for headlights these are the best in every catagory!

            Shopping and shipping with no problems, as usual. The headlamps fit perfect, no complication during the installation, even the bumper removal was much easier than expected. Just hate the splicing - will solder it ASAP.

            I was back and forth on which lights I wanted to do, but if you're looking for a very sporty headlight I HIGHLY recommend these. Super easy to install, front bumper is easy to take off. The primary reason behind the purchase is because they match my halo fog lights.

            Absolutely abysmal fitment and visibility

            Pros: They look fantastic, the halos bring a great look to the front end. The smoked lenses look great and don't limit the light too much as long as you upgrade to LEDs or HIDs Cons: These headlights don't fit in the original position, at all. It took spacers for the bottom and a bracket for the top to push them out far enough to be in the OEM location. THERE IS NO ADJUSTABILITY. They have adjusters, however these only adjust the headlights maybe 1-2 degrees and even then they are pointing at the ground maybe 5 feet from the vehicle. Not only is adjustment awful, the adjusters are cheap and immediately broke when trying to adjust. This is NOT an isolated incident as many other reviewers have also complained about the same thing. The combination of poor fitment and lack of adjustability leads to incredibly poor visibility at night even with an LED kit. What should have been a 2 hr install turned into over 6 hours over two days (had to stop working on them because it was frustratingly awful) due having to create spacers and brackets in order to properly fit them and even more modification to get them to aim even moderately well. tldr; I'd be okay with how these turned out if I payed $50 on but not the $200 on AM.
