With winter on the horizon I was looking for a grill cover for my 2002 F250 7.3 Powerstroke Diesel truck and found a pretty solid deal for one through Amazon. This is actually a heavy duty vinyl/fabric one for the winter to help retain heat in your engine compartment and a mesh/net one for the summer to act as a bug guard to protect your a/c condenser. The big reason for having one of these on a diesel engine is because they take longer than gasoline engines to heat up and get to normal operating temps. Diesel tends to freeze easier than gas, and when combined with cold engine oil and coolant, can create some big problems.

Seems like they get mixed reviews online. I live in Iowa and it can get pretty darn cold. Still plan to plug in the block heater on the truck each night, but there is no way to do that while at work or out of town. Camelcamelcamel shows that the price actually got to historic lows in July at about $24. Sitting at around $34 shipped with Prime right now, which is roughly 50% off the "normal" price of $70 - $80. Willing to at least give it a shot at that price. Hope this helps someone!!!

"WF920 Series custom fit winter fronts and bug screens are designed to provide benefits in both winter and summer. Made from all weather heavy duty quilted vinyl, the winter front promotes better fuel economy. It aids in providing faster engine warm up and interior heat. It keeps diesel engines at optimal operating temperatures with adjustable air flow doors. In the spring and summer, the bug screen, made from heavy duty tear resistant mesh, protects the rad and grille from bugs, stones and debris. The winter front and bug screen are interchangeable using Fia's patented Stick A Stud no drill installation system. Using a 3M adhesive backed stud fastener, just peel and stick to surface and snap on either the winter front or bug screen. No tools are required for installation."

I'd be cautious about this product. A grille is designed to allow air to flow into the engine bay through the radiator. Doesn't this product obstruct the airflow and therefore potentially cause the car to overheat? That happens all the time when people put big wreaths on their grilles for christmas

Thumbs up. This is a good deal if you know what you need it for. In really cold weather these are great for diesel pickups.
