winter front grill inserts for cold Canadian

Does anyone make a winter front for the newer Tacoma's? I want something other than a chunk of cardboard! Would be willing to pay for something that looks decent. Anyone have any homemade solutions? Let's see some pics!

It is just a barrier to stop some cold air from hitting the radiator. This helps keep the engine temperate up where it belongs. Usually plugging the front of your grille with cardboard or plastic etc is sufficient.

Yes that is the idea. They are designed to hold more heat in so that the heater/defroster works better and warms up faster. I have never had need for any in a Toyota product.
