I've not had very good luck with the frameless wipers like Bosch Icon or Valeo Ultimate (around $20 each), but they have some Goodyear Advantage frameless at Costco for $8 each that are fantastic on the WJ.

However, for mud, you really need a traditional metal-frame wiper. Bosch Excel, Excel Plus work well for me and are usually about $12 each. I don't really care for the cheaper Ansa or Trico or the Rain-X wipers. Don't overthink it though.

x2, frameless wipers are great. The ones at COSTCO are pretty good.

Although much more pricey (usually $16/blade), the Silblade Silicone traditional framed wipers last long and don't streak. I run Silblades .

X2 on the Silblade recommendation. IIRC correctly, they are warrantied for a lifetime. I have put them on all my cars and Jeeps at once before and they do hold up seemingly forever. Best blades I've ever used in 45+ years of driving. Now all those cars and Jeeps are gone, I need to get some more Silblades for what I now have.
