I'd do it behind it, more discreet that way.

I personally think the lights look better on light tabs, in front of the grill. But it looks good either way

Mine are behind the grille and look sweet. I have them far enough back to where they dont even get the back of the grille hot at all.

Ok, maybe depends on your grill. Can't put one behind mine and pull it off.

Behind, not sure where you live, but I doubt you'd want real KC's to walk away..

I said it before and Ill say it again.

Behind is where you want them mounted the lights set it off a lot more. Its different and its a look not many ppl have.

I have a lot of ppl ask me about mine, if they are real and if they work and always its the same response. " those are so sweet man " thats not something you see very often at all

Do it from behind man
