yea, keeps the wind out since there is no holes through it. lot of diesel guys use them and i was surprised to see that they have one for the ranger.

Lol I was confused and thought that OP was from the south using a grille cover. They use em a lot up here too, warms your engine up a ton quicker. Sucks waiting 20 min to have a warm truck.

Winter cover does help in heating up faster. A Canadian winter bug screen lol. It gets pretty darn cold here so keeping the powerplant warm and protected from the harsh winter elements help. There are ports on the winter front that can opened for warmer days to allow cool air flow.
