Winter grill guard!

Ok i have been looking around for a winter grill guard. So far there has not been to much luck. Today i came across this http://www.cabelas.com/product/Auto-...0#productChart

I know a few people were looking for one, so hopefully this helps you out.

Also post up any pics of things you have made to help keep the heat in during the long grueling winters. If it is custom, maybe parts list and quick write up on how you did it.

I know its not the grill guard, but I took a piece of plexi-glass cut it the width of the radiator, ran it up to the race car shop and had a 2" 90 deg bend put in the top of it. I drop it down between the radiator and core support. The 2" bend holds it on lace, and my truck warms up great. If I need to tow, I just warm the truck up and then remove it.
