Default Mounting Lights inside Grille

2 Questions:
KC Daylighters.
Can I mount these on the inside of my 08 rangers grille (how?)

Will the heat from the lights melt the inside of my grille?

The heat wont melt it, just factor in clearance and what type of grille you have and how much visibility you will get out of it. Neoranger, It will look....kinda ok on yours, you have pretty wide crossbars on the grille and it may scatter the light. Honeycombe grilles are a mesh and easier to get the light to pass

I know that, that's one reason why I've been looking into swapping my grille.... If that's possible

I'm not sure of the newer model grille swaps, check LMCtruck.com, see if there is anything you can swap in there

Well I mean, the hood, and lights can be swapped, so why not the grille? Lol
