Default LED Light bar behind honeycomb grill

Has anyone installed an LED light bar behind the honeycomb grill? I was wondering what effects it has on the light or if it blocks to much of it.

Was thinking about throwing something like this on there just for fun out camping.

I've tried to fit my lightbar behind my grille but unfortunately the one I ordered was a couple inches to long but there is room behind the grille and with that short of a lightbar it SHOULD fit.. Not saying it will for sure. But I ended up mounting my 32 in on the bumper and I think it doesn't look half bad. Also about the grille effecting the light, it doesn't effect the light as much as you'd think it would. Honestly you probably wouldn't notice the difference. ____________________________________________ Just to let you know any of the cheap lightbars on Amazon will get moisture inside the lens. Mine got moisture in it the day after I got it and I even sealed it with silicone. But I've had it for about a year and it still shines bright just flickering a little bit but I'm holding my breath.

23" inch eyourlife off of amazon. I need to modify it so it will tilt back and point upwards more. The honeycomb doesn't block any light. If the light bar mounts too high though, it'll be obscured by the grill emblem. Very pleased with the results though.
And the mounting bolts were a little bit of a pain the get secured, but it was accomplished.
