I searched online before and couldn't find anything like this but I'm sure it's floating around somewhere out there. I really like the wiper blades without the pressure points that come on the newer vehicles. And like any Jeeper knows they do not come in our correct length.
I did do this without my Jeep so I'm sure you could fine tune these to maximize the coverage of the wipers. I'm hoping these work well since its the time of the year we are supposed to get rain and freezing drizzle.
I used the Bosch wiper blades. I planned on using the RainX kind but I had a extra set of Bosch. I like the RainX kind because the blade is removable and I could pull and replace the blade when it becomes worn. The Bosch appear to be glued in.
First I pulled off the plastic the end. You just spread them apart and pull them off. Then I'm marked on the metal piece with a marker where I wanted to cut it off. I used a Dremel to cut the thin metal.
I also cut the corners of the inside of the metal so it would slide over the plastic end cap. I primed the metal that I cut so I wouldn't flake and rust.
Then with the razor I trimmed the blade about a quarter of an inch short of the end. I also trimmed the plastic piece that is all on top of the wiper.
Then you put the wiper blade back between the metal strips and slide the top rubber piece on. I used weatherstrip adhesive to secure the end caps back on. Let it dry and you have mini blades.
I also tweaked the metal in the wiper blade because when it is shorter the force will have to be greater from the arm to make it flush. (This is all in theory.)
It took me about 30 min or so and they are within 1/8 of an inch from matching. So if I can get them to clean the window I'll be happy. If not oh well, good luck.
