And they don't hit your windshield surround?

I'm interested in TJ wiper blades as well. I can never find the 13" blades in stock at Advance so I ordered some from Quadratec, and they back ordered me. Who else has ran a 14 or 15" wiper blade with success? Does it hit the edges of the windshield frame? Someone mentioned a double bladed mud wiper, has anyone here used those and how did they work for normal rain?

I bought a pair of Silblades, probably a year ago now, and I think they're the best blade I've used yet. I've tried bosch, the cheapo's from wally world, etc. these ones are made to last and leave an extremely clean windshield. Built to perform in poor conditions and sustains quality against the elements. Fairly positive they also come with a 5 year warranty. I picked them up off of Amazon prime for around $15/ea I believe. You can actually go up to 14" without any interference on your windshield. That's the size I run right now.

Im running... 14" I believe; in a reflex wiper blade. They work great, and dont hit the windshield weatherstripping or anything like that... they hit JUST the windshield.

Ive been using a set of Silblades now for almost 3 years. They're still like new. They were salty for the initial investment. But well worth it in the long run.
