    Nice truck. That an LBZ? I wouldn't run the winter grille cover while plowing, if I were you. You may overheat while you are in transport.

    Yeah, that's cold, but you are restricting airflow enough with the blade up during travel, it doesn't help to have the winter cover in the way as well. It really doesn't matter how cold it is outside, because once the engine heats up, the heat is going to circulate inside the engine compartment and further heat it up. Just keep an eye on your temp. gauge.;)

    Actually the winter front on the truck doesn't affect it with the plow. I don't have any long pushes at high speed so maybe that is why. I have gone on the highway and the truck just went to normall operating temp and never got any warmer than normall. It's on and off in seconds so if the temp were to get higher than normall I can easily remove it.

    It is a LBZ with 6 speed Allison tranny.

    Few more pics of the truck.
