I had a pair of KC hi lites in the grill of my '07 classic Z71. I had zero issues with the lights getting too hot and melting the grill. I think with driving and all the air moving around the lights keep them cool. It was an awesome upgrade and I am ready to get some put in my '08 Z71.
Go for it!

Check out Amy's album of her old truck, she was running lights with halos behind her grille.

I have 2 6" lights behind my grille on my 05' Silverado, and I have never had any problems with them either. This is the perfect mod for someone who wants more light, but doesn't want a light bar on there truck.

Here's a picture of behind my grille with the lights, I took two of the radiator shroud pins out and reamed the holes out a shred larger and put the bolts right through the top of the grille shell. DO NOT do this is you don't have a reinforced billet grille, because it will cause the unmodified factory grille to sag. A member on this forum tried this with a set, and the top of his grille could not handle the extra weight.
