    Actually, it's a Justifiable Aerodynamic Nulification Entropy Thingy.

    Personally, it seems to function more like a scarf than anything. Scarves help block cold air from getting to the neck (and down your jacket).

    How about Grille Scarf?

    I have a little more to do on the mold and should be able to start some parts production this weekend. I can release the products at a reduced cost and let the consumer install the product and drill air holes as needed. I will be willing to paint the product according to the paint code on your car for an extra fee.



    Thanks Franklin

    Franklin as far as I know is no longer making anything because of poor sales. If your interested in his products you may want to contact him directly.

    I can't find Franklin on-line as Hybrid Effects either.
    The website is currently inactive :(

    That said, Sigma Automotive is still offering his Gen II
    wheel skirts, aero wheel covers, and lower grill block...
    still unnamed as far as I can tell. Damm It! :D

    Go to Sigma Automotive, then scroll down to the
    "US & Canada Toyota & Aftermarket Options ↓" section.

    FWIW, Franklin's email address is in the OP.
