Question Why is it Hot????

It's a little late in the year to bring this up but there is far to much heat that gets into the passenger compatment from the radiator and the heat off the engine during the warmer months. Have any of you Rhino owners done anything to try and deflect the heat away from the drivers legs. I've tried a couple of things but nothing has worked very well.
I hate to wear long pants when it is above 50 degrees.
Thanks

So den the guys says "Why Me?"

Wlecome aboard!!!I have heard of people puttin insolation on the engine cover and it helped a little. Do you run a windsheild. I have also heard that will keep the hot air in. Good Luck

I still have never had that problem, Unless you run a windshield ( even a half one) like BigJ said, there has been very few complaints about that.

Why is it Hot????

Back seat, "Now that's the ticket"
I do have the half windshield but it had that hot "draft" prior to installing that. It's like I have a heater vent right behind my right leg.
I'm used to being unusual and having unique problems.....sigh...
I'll keep trying little things until I get it handeled. It's kind nice in the cooler months anyway.
A good project for next season.
The procrastinator thanks you for the input.

Make sure your console is all the way on.

Hapa- ''When I checked into my motel, I said to the lady at the desk:

"I hope the porn channel in my room is disabled."

"No," she said, "it's just regular porn, you sick bastard."
