Do you cover?

Weather has been frigid this week. 0 at night and below 20 in the morning. My truck takes forever to get to temp and if I stop, even at a stop light the temp drops. I've seen some really hillbilly grill covers but does anyone know of anything that looks decent?

I think you need a new thermostat.

I agree you might need a thermostat... that's not really that cold, my truck can easily hold temp at those conditions with no front on it, If it starts getting below 0 down to -20 at night or colder then it can have trouble warming up, but once warm it will hold temp. I see your in Michigan, haven't you had this truck long enough to deal with some real cold yet?

I went to a canvas shop that made canvas signs, truck trailer tarps, and stuff like that. They had a selection of canvases, meshes, colors, and such. They just screwed silver snaps into the grill, and made the cover to match. It was 50 or 75, and it's nice. I can't tell the snaps are there hardly, they blend well.
