    I have the 86, single exaust routed out behind the drivers rear tire, out to the side,


    I also have a full vert and no tailgate



    due to the way these things act with air passing over them am I going to suck in my exaust as well as dirt/dust?


    wondering about your set ups and thoughts

    :confused:

    Being full vert you should be okay. now if you had the top and no tailgate that could be another story plus with the exhaust coming out 90'd to the side you should be fine anyways. oh and with your tube doors to ......ventilation should not be a problem:eek1: Are you gonna trailer it to Moab ?????

    I know from having mine behind tire , above spring . That whether the top is on , or not ( remeber I removed a few times and wheeled with the guys ) that its a non issue . Maybe my antenna breaks up the air , maybe its my shackle flip and the exhaust above the spring .

    Dunno , I just don't smell anything bad in the cab :thumb:

    As for dust , get over it , you wheel in the west , you use compressed air to blow it out :deal:

    lol


    i drove my truggy rain or shine, very utilitarian, in az if it rains, you pull over and wait, or drive the other car,


    i am making abikini top,

    also in these trucks when you drive, as long as the tires dont stick out, even in the rain with no top and doors you dont get wet:D the air vaccumes over due to the windshshild angle/design

    i also have never used windshield wippers, just rainex, no mud here....i feel if the weather is that bad I dont need to be on the road anyways:wink1:

    The only time I ever had a problem with exhaust fumes was when I had my top on the K5 and the rear window rolled down. My dual exhaust used to exit on the side but I cut it off under the truck just after the rear axle. The fumes were HORRID when the rear window was rolled down even with the front windows down. It would literally choke you and bring tears to your eyes.

    With the top off it is a non-issue.
