Offroad lights behind grill with auto tranny

I have a 2005 4.0 FX4. I am wanting to mount some Hella's or KC's behind the the grill, but the automatic transmission radiator takes up a bunch of space. Has anyone made this work before? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Yes, there is plenty of room still to mount Hella 500's.

edit: If there is room on a 02 then I'd assume even with the different grill there is still the same amount of space back there but I could be wrong.

You could mount the lens though the grille, instead of behind it.

Just thinking out loud but lights though the grille is different.

Actually cutting holes in the grille the size of the lights being used and mounting the lights with the lens through the openings.
