Bra in the winter??

Should a guy be running one in the winter months. Just wondering what you guys think.

My truck is outside 24/7 as I dont have a garage, and i live in Minnesota, so its cold here.

Are you talking about those full front end Bra that cover the front of your hood, grill and bumper? Or just a Grill Cold Weather cover?

Cause if your going with a full bra? There is no good time for a bra.
A weather front on your grill... anytime below -4 F but keep an eye on your temp gauge in stop and go driving

If the coolant gage doesnt get up to normal operating temperature I have mine on. I roll top and bottom in to allow some air flow.

I put the grill cover on at @ 30F and take it off at @ 40F. I haven't ever put the bumper cover on yet. I don't tow with the cover on.

Living in Alaska I run just the grill cover. Also did the same in mn when I lived there. Towing or not. Just need to keep an eye on temps when towing above 40*.

I never use a bra, summer or winter, just not comfortable. Plus the straps are always falling down, it's just a pain.
