It depends on how the back of the grille looks. Like mine I dont think the lights would shine through because there are all these support thingys holding the grille together.

I tried to do this and found I lost a lot of clearance back there with the billet. I bought some Hella FF200s (probably 4" deep) and they did not fit. If I had a stock grille, they probably would have.
