I'm looking to put winter fronts on the 05 2500 this year. My question is this: Does it really help the truck to warm up faster?
I would think that the thermostat would keep the coolant in the block until a preset temp and only then would allow the coolant through the radiator. Don't see how a winter front would help that process.
I suppose it would help it get to peak temp with a winter front because the water through the radiator wouldn't get so much airflow. Also guessing that winter fronts would be good for mpg because of the reduced airflow through the engine compartment. The engine compartment has been described as a parachute and I can see why.
Also, vendors, who has the best price?
Thanks in advance for your help.

we go through weeks at a time without getting above freezing and without the winterfornt my truck won't get all the way up to op temp, the winter front makes a big difference, get better mileage on the hiway in the winter also.
