So far Dan has said that Raxiom has no plans for a 2013/14 style tail lights for the 2010/11/12 cars. The aero tail lights are a good looking option, they help with the flat looking rear to those who don't like it, but i prefer the tail lights i have now.

The Raxioms are also known for bad scratches.....This doesn't apply to the ones who have garage queens and can detail all day properly.

I like the aero tail lights personally. Changes up the back a little, but it's subtle.

As of right now Raxiom doesn't have any plans to make a 2013 Style Taillight for the 2010-2012 Mustangs. If that changes, you guys will be the first to know!

5 pt oh, have you had an issue with our taillights scratching? I've had Raxiom taillights on my Mach 1 for 5 years and they look brand new still and I have them on my 2011 GT without a scratch. I daily drive my Mustang and it see's all weather!

If you're having an issue with yours, please let me know and I'll make sure you're taken care of!

I was contemplating the same thing last year OP. But instead I went ahead and ordered the mmd tail light trim and bought a can of plasti dip to black out the reverse lights. This brought everything together nicely with the deck lid. As to visibility of the reverse lights, yes, light output is greatly reduced but I felt they weren't much help to me anyways. Others can still see them turn on when pulling out of a parking space though so they still serve their purpose. And with the left over dip I did the 3rd brake light and the faux cap surround. I am very pleased with the out come and get compliments all the time. Here's a pic. Enjoy thumbsup3.gif

I have this done to mine but I used night shades on the reverse lights and it melted the tailights I got overspray on the drivers side center one and now there's a huge dip where it messed them up guess I'll be ordering those from AM idk I kinda like the smoked but I prefer to keep my brake lights as visible as possible so I probably go non smoke but thanks guys!

The lights look good but PlastiDip over the reverse lights? You didn't want to use them anymore?
Light still shines through them as it's only a couple of coats of dip (I plan on getting the LED reverse light bulbs though) Also the only dark place I reverse into is my garage and they weren't much help to begin with. The brake lights give me more than enough light to see as I round the corner and my rear reverse sensors tell me when to stop waycool.gif
