    Welcome to the exciting world of owning Blazers!!

    there is a "deflector shield" that helps from what I have heard. I just keep the top off and I have problems keeping rain out of the cab, but no exhaust/forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    Yep, getting the wind deflector and exiting the exhaust out the side will.........let you breathe easier.

    I have exhaust out the side, and it will come in if u are idling or on a trail, but it isnt that much. it doesnt bother me n e. Just dont think of al the brain cells you are killing.

    yes it does. you need to put the out at the rear corners. then you will only get the fumes at a stop light.

    I had a Blazer with true duals that ran out the sides and I couldn't so much as crack the rear window without fear of suffocation. I didn't have the deflector though. Now, my new Blazer (Jimmy) has the stock single side exit and no deflector, and I don't have any fumes either cracked or all the way down.
