They're just cabin vents. All vehicles have 'em. It's just that Mr. T put them up high enough on the LC to keep them out of the river you just crossed (and the river out of your cruiser).What is the function of these vents?
I don't think the airbags will care about little vents... when both front airbags inflated on my LC90, they blew out the entire back windows on both sides !I wouldn't close the vents off without first finding out if they are important to proper operation of the air bags.
Good point. I agree that the Airbags are going to blow regardless of the rear vents. It's not like it's a pressurized cabin. Plus, if you have the electric wing windows, those things don't exactly have an ironclad seal to them - they'd flex out no problem.I don't think the airbags will care about little vents... when both front airbags inflated on my LC90, they blew out the entire back windows on both sides !
I haven't opened these up, but if they are like most vehicles, they are one-way - out. They don't help bring in fresh air unless there is a two-way door as part of the A/C system.I think the bigger issue is that your HVAC wouldn't be very effective (especial on defog) without fresh air. Plus - heaven forbid - if someone happened to get sideways with a burrito.... well, you probably want a way to get that back out of the truck, and quickly!
