So because of the 13" size of our TJ wiper blades, I've only been able to find the traditional style wiper blades (with multi-point pressure points). But these never seem to do a great job of clearing the water/ice/snow.
I've got the really nice kind of wiper blades (one long heavy rubber piece) on my g/f Saturn Vue, but they only go as small as like 16" I think.
Has anyone taken say a 26" and cut it or modded it to be two 13" wipers? I have no idea why the better wiper blades won't fit wranglers...you'd think they would make some for owners that use their Jeeps in places where most cars can't go...
There's a joint local to me called Silblade that makes them but they're about 3 times the cost of the Bosch.
Are you sure they're the Icons? I have checked all my local parts stores and the Icons are never available, plus I just re-checked Bosch's website and they don't list the Icons available under "TJ" or "Wrangler" for part selector.
I last bought a set of NAPA brand winter wipers in October and I use Rain-X wiper fluid. I can't complain thus far. We'll see how they fair toward the end of April after 6 months. 6 months is all I give a set of wipers...
Same here I always get streaks of rubber that just peels off and smears the windshield.
I've tried expensive ones and cheap ones the plain janes work best
I stopped using Rain X.... I was religious with the stuff, but on my KK I was driving down a gravel road and pop a rock hit ... called Safelite ... they came out the next day .... The guy really chastised me for using RainX because it does not allow the 'special resin' to set up and dry clear ... about a year later I was leaving for Clinicals and loaded up 2 other nursing students and one turned the heat on defrost and where they repaired cracked. So I was being cheap and went to safelite and the manager came out and saw the crack and asked if I used RainX before the application of the "resin" I said yes and he said he couldn't do anything.... I guess I am just cheap and do not want to pay for the windshield myself in my other cars so I stopped using it on all my vehicles.
