to cover or not to cover

I think I know the answer, and I did a search of several key words with no success. What is the conventional wisdom concerning the use of a pad or some sort in front of the radiator in cold weather? I have seen some big rigs with this set up, but not nearly as in past times. Thanks for your help in advance.

Search cold front, or cold fronts, but honestly a piece of cardboard behind the grill works too, and several have just made one

By keeping the extreme cold temps away from the rad the engine can build and maintain the heat its creating affectively. In return we can generate heat faster and keep the engine at operating temperature making it more efficient in winter temps.

Worth every penny, cardboard or other if you drive in the cold!

Spray paint the card board black... Then it isn't noticeable to others while driving!
