Cool. It definitely is the standard GM socket so any smaller pre-1993 GM vehicles will have a good chance of working. I was thinking S10 but it doesn't look like it flips up. You actually have to use a pin to lock it up. I will take some pics this weekend.

I'm about 95% sure the pre-1996 Dodge Dakota would fit but I do not think they flip up, so maybe Chrysler/Dodge vehicles from the 80s/90s would work like the Dodge Caravan. I know the Caravan and first gen Dakotas had 18" wipers just like my Jeep and my Chevy truck.

I like to flip up the wipers on my Monti Carlo and drive around town with them on --- looks like radar --

I was once a tree house.
I lived in a cake.
But I never saw the way - the orange slayed the rake --

Just don't open your hood with them flipped up. Bad news bears.

Its not about the wiper length. You can put any size wipers you want on the arms. Its about the length of the wiper arms. In the "erect" position, the wiper blade mount should be center of the windshield.
I didn't get around to checking the vehicals I have here at the house this evening.

Jake,

You are very much right, when I refer to vehicles using 18" wipers I'm generalizing that cars that use 18" wipers have similar sized (small) windows. The overall arm length is approximately 16" for the Jeep (I think I said 15.75" in a previous post).
