    I got one from Advance Auto Parts. It cost me $19.95 and has a life time warr. Its one that goes along the lip of the hood. I think it was made by "Ventshade" or "Autoflector". I can't remember the exact name. Sorry.

    I just took a Deflectashield (the wrap around type) off mine that will NOT be going back on when I get the Blazer repainted! Before I put it on a couple of years ago, the front edge of the hood was in near perfect condition. When I took it off a few weeks ago, the paint on the bottom front edge of the hood started flaking away. My best guess is that the deflector trapped water there and the hood rusted. Just my opinion, either get a different kind or don't get one at all.
