Well spacers are obviously going to make it wider. It looks good though that's why I asked.

are the KC's mounted to the lower portion of your grille surround? if so, the light beam is gonna bounce all around when you use them. looks good, though

Did you tighten it down really tight? After I re-tightened mine, they haven't bounced since, but then again I may have drilled through sturdier part of my surround

Looks great! I have the same grill as you but I want a set mounted behind the grill. I don't know how you don't have enough rom behind the grill for those lights, I got lots of room
the only concern I have is blocking air flow to my rad

I think if the grill was off you would find a much better mounting area to make them fit behind. I'm going to try really soon me tinks
