    Has anyone ever put a rear defrost in their Blazer?
    Is it even possible?
    If its possible what do I need to do?
    Thanks

    The full size Bronco has a defroster grid in the back window. No reason why GM couldn't have done it... I'm sure you can get a JC Whitney or a parts store kit to put your own defroster in. Just be careful how you run the wires so they don't chaffe and remember that the window has to move up and down. Don't know how long it would last... Maybe if you tinted the window after putting the grid on the glass to add a little protection to the grid.

    This is something I've also wanted to do, but haven't gotten around to it. I was also thinking about an alternative. I have a small ceramic heater with a blower that plugs into the lighter. I was thinking I could mount it in the back so it blows warm air on the back window. I'd put a switch up front so I wouldn't have to leave the driver's seat to turn it on.<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1>Edited by Hobbes68 on 01/30/01 11:52 PM (server time).</FONT></P>

    my dad gave me this little heater that plugs into the cigarette lighter. i duct taped it to the roof and it blows warm air on the window and clears it real quickly. plus it warms the rear up faster. the only thing is he bought it in the 70's so i dont know where you could get one
