The truck you drive represents a substantial investment, perhaps the most significant purchase you have ever made. As such, you want to make sure that it is properly cared for in each weather season. At the same time, you also want to be able to display some of your personality on your truck. One way that you can quickly and inexpensively accomplish both goals is with a grille cover. These covers come in a variety of styles and sizes including designs with camo, patriotic or other flag print designs. All of our covers require simple installation, which is ideal for long-haul drivers that might be in a variety of temperatures during the course of a route. This guide will look at various winterfronts and how to choose the right one for your vehicle.
Benefits of Semi Truck Winterfronts
More than just a style choice, the right grille cover will also add to the longevity of your truck. By keeping engine blocks and oil pans warmer, there is less strain on engine parts, especially when starting the unit cold. Additionally, it can help with engine efficiency and offer you a more comfortable ride. Consider the top six benefits of having your grille covered adequately.
- There is less fuel use as engines reach their ideal temperature quicker.
- The engine temperature is better maintained while the truck is parked.
- There is decreased strain on the battery and starter during cold start-ups.
- The oil pan and engine block have better heat retention during cold weather.
- There is less engine wear and tear from faster increases in engine oil temperature.
- You are more comfortable as the cabin temperature warms in less time.
Types of Covers
Most covers are made from heavy-duty vinyl and come with snaps that can quickly be installed around the grille. There are as many different types of covers as there are grille designs, so there is no doubt that you will always be able to find one that fits your model truck. Many have slat openings while others may have a square, diamond or letter-shaped opening. Winterfronts are installed easily, using the same mounting gear as bug screens so you can easily switch between the two, depending on your needs. This is especially ideal for drivers in areas where the temperature can change rapidly, or for long-haul operators that might be in very different temperature zones in the course of a few days.
Styles of Covers
When it comes to the style of semi truck winter fronts, there are as many options as there are ideas. For hunting enthusiasts, you may want to choose one of the camo designs; RealTree and Mossy Oak camo finishes. If your passion is more patriotic, you can find flag print designs or ones that display your home state. For those with tastes that are a little more subdued, there are many styles available in an understated solid white or black vinyl. The vinyl may have a quilted pattern to give it a more luxurious look.
