Rain-X , or similiar windshield treatments

I have used Rain-X on my other vehicles' windshields in the past over the years. I think it works great.

Since I have yet to use any on my Jeep's windshield, I wanted to check with you all to see what you all use .... whether it is Rain-X or another product.

I've never used any sort of rain x on my windshields....does it really make a difference?

what i want is inside windshield wipers...cause when it starts to rain all that rain gets on the inside of the windshield!! that sucks.

I just use the orange Rain-X washer fluid and that works well for me.

I got the little squirt bottle of rain-x and it works amazing. The rain just beads off my window. I also found that if you use car wax on your window and let it dry then wipe it off that works the same as rain x.

Rain X is very cool. If your at highway speeds the rain just beads up then rolls off. No real need for wiper blades. The angle of the JK windscreen is a little to high but it still works great at speed.
my 2 cents

I use Pink Wax made by liquid luster, I use it to wax my car and Jeep and use it on the windshield. Works great and lasts longer than rain-x. I buy 2 bottles every year at the Chicago Auto Show. It is also available online at www.pinkwax.net.
