Winter Grill Cover

I have been looking on line for a winter grill cover.. I am not able to find one that is what I want. I would like to find one that has a Ford emblem on it or it says PowerStroke... if you guys happen to know when I can find one let me know..

Thanks

Are you looking for a grille cover that will also help keep the engine warmer in cold weather or just for cosmetics and to protect the front end from bugs and stuff? I'd be interested in cover that would be suitable for cold weather operation - I go to Quebec every February and it's often -20 deg. F. Anyway, good luck with the cover.

How cold does it have to be before you need something like this?
I've been in -5 degree temps never had a problem.
Does it just take less time for heater to warm up?

I haven't ever had any problems with it warming up at all. I had me truck plugged in last night and it was about 5 when I started it and it was warm in 5 min. My mustang on the other hand never warms up even in the summer.
