Front end bra

Anybody in the colder climates run their truck with a bra? the dealer gave it to me when I bought the truck and said I should put it on when it snows or gets down around 32 degrees. Well it's snowing. What are your thoughts?

I run it, really helps the truck warm up quick and stay warm when stoped. also helps the air filter from freezing off.

It hasnt gotten above 22* here in a couple of days. Last night we were combining corn still and the outside temp gauge read 16*. I haven't used it yet, I haven't needed to. I suppose I will try it out though soon. Ive got the supplemental heater (if thats even worth a *****) and start my truck about 10 min before I leave for work. By the time I get out of the drive, it's warming up nicely.

Anything under 10 degrees and my truck won't reach operating temp if I'm driving 40-50 mph. I just put a piece of cardboard in front of the radiator. Works great. If it gets above 50 you should take that cover off your grill btw.
