FIA Winter Front

Has anyone bought the FIA winter front for the 6.7? (link below) If you have, what did you think??? I like the idea of the stick on snaps, but would not want them to be visible in the summer, so I would likely remove them. Is the 3m adhesive backing easy to remove?

Why not get an OEM winter front? There's no buttons, just straps and some Velcro bracket pieces that don't stick to the truck. On and off in about 5 minutes.

They make one??? I have been searching all over online, and asking dealers and everyone says that Ford doesn't make one for the 11-13 SD's.

I have the fia one and it fits and works great. I don't mind the buttons on it but I have found out that when its really cold I lost a couple snaps. Im buying some chrome ones and gonna rivet them to my grill so they wont be as noticeable in the summer but I plan on running the screen it came with all summer to keep the bugs and crap off my grill. I went with the fia because the factory one is twice the cost, I got my fia winter and summer cover for $52 off of amazon

I actually ended up buying one off amazon on Thursday morning. They said it was "used" but I can't see how it has ever been used. Plus, amazon prime got it shipped here Friday for free. Cost about $60 only because I bought an extra box of snaps too.

The quality looks great and installation was simple. I took my grill off and brought it inside to let it warm up all day, then used a hair dryer to heat the grill and snaps. I think it looks pretty cool on there. I haven't driven yet because I am letting the snaps set up, but I will let everyone know how quickly it has the truck warm up. May make a new product review post, or just post it on here.

Mine didn't make a huge difference in warm up time . I noticed it keeps it about 15-20 warmer going down the road and doesn't seems like engine is working as hard. I've ran it with the flaps open and the flaps closed when it was -30 here and didn't make a huge difference open or closed . But it definitely keeps the truck at operating temp easier when running into the 40 mph winds when it is negative degree temps

That's about what I figured. I didn't think it would help that much when idling, but I was hoping it would help to keep it warmer while driving. I drive a lot on the highway back and forth from school. Hopefully this will make the cold drives easier on the engine.
