Default RE: Tail pipe

When you say put it out towards the side, do you mean in front of the rear tire? If so, in many states, this is illegal. Many states require the exhaust to exit behind the rear tires and/or behind the passenger compartment and on a Blazer, the passenger compartment goes all the way back to the rear window.

Other than that, you could replace just the tail pipe. Use a hack saw or recip-saw (recip will be much faster and less tiring) clean up the edges with a file and slip on a replacement tailpipe from your favorite autoparts store. If it is only screwed up at the end, then maybe you could cut it off back a little bit (past the damage) and just install a new exhaust tip using the same method as above.
