    Hella Black Magics are awesome...Those are what I'm running on my bumper and I think they'd look great behind your grille

    PIAA 520's are great lights and really hold up well to elements. Kinda pricy though.

    x2. I love my lightforce's, but I don't know if you can get the lightforce to fit behind the grille. They are a pretty deep light.

    You can fit 170's. There is quite a bit of room. Hell I'm putting internal ballast kragen hid's back there!

    Oh ok. I never really pulled a measurement or anything behind my grille it just looks kind of tight in there. I also have a 1st gen. and don't know what the OP has.

    It's a tight fit on 2nd gens but it is possible with some creativeness
