Can someone please post a picture of a Mopar winter front on your second. I do not wish to see the home made or genos winter fronts. Really want to see what the OEM ones look like installed and can’t find a picture anywhere

No I just mean the one that mopar made for the trucks not aftermarket ones

 

All mine are are aluminum sign cut up so they fit inside the grill holes. Bow the metal slighjtly and then only need 1 bolt to hold them in place.

I have seen several fabric ones on ebay, amazon and such. They attach to the grill and you can open them in increments or close them all the way. Not sure I have ever seen one from Mopar but never looked. I have some some similar to @Mopar1973Man but made of lexan I think. They install the same way.

 I can't say I've ever seen any from mopar either. I'm sure they probably had them back when the second gens were fairly new yet. Haven't laid eyes on one though.

Haha well I just ordered one from eBay so I will show be sure to post a picture when I get it!

Well, here is the "rare" winter cover.

 

Attached are a couple pictures of the winter cover that came with my '02.  I just put it on a new grill for display purposes.  The cover wraps around the grill and covers about 6" of the hood.  It attaches with Velcro, straps and wedges (no tools needed).  It can be rolled down and secured with attached straps.  This is the OEM winter grill.  It has a split zipper to open.  It has a non-absorbent felt backing and an upper "air wedge" to keep it tight to the hood.

 

First picture is fully open

Second picture is fully closed

Third picture shows portion that goes over the hood

Well sum beach!!!! There she is. I personally never looked for one. I did not know anything about the need for such a thing back in 01. Looks like you have never used it.

I usually only use it from January - February each year.  I keep it clean and conditioned with vinyl protectant.  When not in use it is stored in the shop.  It is very heavy duty construction.  It looks like new because it was just cleaned.
