Also looking to buy a winter cover. The GM cover provided looks too much of a hassle to put on and off. Also I don't like the fact that dirt and salt gets underneath and you have to constantly remove it to clean.
Found some of these. Anyone have them and can comment on pros and cons?
The grill cover is a must if you live anywhere cold. 30 deg. and lower. The factory covers are a pain and because dirt, salt and sand get under them they scratch and buff the grill and any plastic under them. I have the Cloud Rider (Lund) from Max Power and I love it. But if you want to pull it off or put it on in two seconds.....It ain't gonna happen. I suspect from looking at most of those that JonnyO shows above that none of them will come of in "a blink of the eye". So look around and choose the one that looks best to you and then learn how to put it on/off. It will all work out and no matter what it will be better than the stock one.
I am hoping to find one like the big rigs where I just pull a handle and the shutters close for the winter. I live in Atlanta and lately it is low 30's in the morning and 60+ on the way home. I am using only the top cover and I am seeing no problems with the engine temp or the trans but the trans is running around 180 where it is usually always under 120 unless I am towing or stuck in stop and go. I am thinking about trying to make one that fits behind the grill. If I do you will see some picks but don't hold your breath.
