I made on for my 1995 suburban, but by the time I got the material and all of the fasteners, then spent the time to make it, it would have been a lot easier and cheaper to buy one. But the one I made looks exactly like I wanted it to, didn't have to settle for someone elses design. You can see it in my garage under the 1995 suburban

Here's my temporary winter cover that's home made, lmao....
Just plow through a big drift, pack it a little bit until desired results are achieved. :D oh yeah, and don't forget to clean off the lights. I just bought a OEM brand new winterfront off ebay for 70 bucks shipped, just have to wait for it to get here.

You need to run that engine block heater cord down in the bumper space cut out. I had to add a short piece of home made cord to achieve this goal.Opening and closing the hood has to be a PIA.

There's been a time or two I forget that it's open when I unplug and halfway to work have to get out and shut the bouncing hood :eek:. I'll route it out lower eventually when I get a chance sooner or later. Lately it's been a really cold PIA at 6 in the morning.

Although not a d-max. Yesterday I saw a Kenworth T-2000 with one of thsoe windshield covers you use to keep the heat out of your vehicle. At first I thought it was aluminum foil but no just an aluminum foil-like windshield cover. He just used zip ties and bam. A blingtastic winter cover

That cord keeps the truck from running away . Got the gmc cover and a woman said it made it look tough , (she liked it ) .

Check to make sure the cord in unwrapped all the way and you should have just enough cord to get the plug out at the corner of the grill. I do not open my hood at all.

I had to cut the loom that holds the 2nd battery leads and heater cord and pull the heater cord out, plenty of cord length to get you out the front of the grill. Make sure to zip tie it at the grill becasue you WILL forget to unplug it as some point.......at least that is what I have heard:p: .

Home amde winter cover

Do you have an addon billet grill? If so what I did was remove the billet grill wrap material around the grill (in my case black) and reinstall. See what you think.

Thanks, no problems at all. I'll probably pull the bumper cover off soon, as the temps are getting up during the day finally.

i dont like to run the bumper cover, it just collects crap inside it and puts little scratches in the clearcoat.
