They dont make a whole lot for them. I have seen the grille insert type which is just flat chrome pieces, I cant seem to find them at the moment. And then there is this http://www.autoanything.com/winter-d...A5100A0A0.aspx. Unless you have the diesel you shouldnt need it though, even my diesel at minus 32 celsius this morning warmed up pretty good, plugged in of course.

It warms up fine but when I start driving my needle goes down to 1/4 on the temp gage instead of a little under half like it usually is

So you mean when its warmed up to half and then you drive it comes down? Is this city or highway driving? Once it is warmed up it should stay there, what engine do you have? For my diesel in very cold weather it will stay at 1/4 when i drive around town but when I hit the highway it stays at 1/2. Thats pretty much what any diesel will do in that weather.

Unless it's super cold, at least 0, that's not normal. Your t-stat may be sticking partially open or otherwise not functioning properly.
