So for as long as I've owned Cherokees I've been very annoyed that the wipers do not flip up. My K2500 wipers flip up and it makes it very easy to clean the windshield which I do very often (at least every fill up) because I drive a lot at night on dark rural roads.
Also I've spent 99.9% of my 30 years in the upper Midwest and my winters are typically -40F to 10F with snow and freezing rain every other day.
I'm surprised I have yet to find a post with an actual solution so I'm going to figure something out.
So knowing that AMC was deep in the GM parts bin I confirmed that my K2500 wiper arm fits on the Jeep.
Here is a photo of my Jeep with my K2500 wiper on the drivers side:
Obviously the K2500 drivers side arm is too long so maybe the passenger side or an arm from an S10 will work.
Here are the arm bases:
Not having flip up wipers has bugged me for like 10 years so I'm pretty hell-bent on figuring this out.
Another option is to grind out the rivet on the Jeep arm and stick the GM base on it. It's pretty obvious by looking at it that it will work. I just don't know if I can re-rivet or bolt it so as not to be ghetto looking.
If anyone has already done this I would be interested.
