What is the best wiper blade for the JK???
 
OK
I have had my JK a year now, my wipers SUCK and its time for new ones.

Please let me know what the best blade is and what size you have (15?)

Right now I am leaning towards the RainX Weatherbearter but would LOVE to hear if there is something better.

Thanks!

I just bought the PIAA's from quad. Will post when delivered.

Good luck you can only get crappy ones at the stores. I was able to pick up "BOSCH" wipers, they are OK and do better then the cheap ones. I don't think RainX makes a size for Jeeps :(

PIAA silicone is the way to go

wipers, as long as you change them are good. even the cheapest ones work fine for a little bit. you have to change them more than the really good ones but you can.

Yes they do. ;)


I have the "leaf spring" rain-x blades on mine, they work great.

X2... Rain-X rocks. 6 months + of use

I had the bosch icons on my old camaro. They worked great for over a year. The only reason they didnt last longer, was because I sold the car. :D


I went with rain-x this time because they were a few dollars cheaper.

the best wiper blade is a good coating of the rain-x liquid. i hardly ever have to use my wipers anymore.

X2, I keep rain-x on mine. I'm also going to try to Amsoil endorsed product next. I've read where it last's much longer than rain-x.

Sillblades are good too. I had them on a WJ. Will put them on the JK when the stockers are toast. Search on Ebay...you can get them much cheeper than most internet sources.

i found that the rain-x treatment for the jk windshield doesnt work as well as less inclined windshields. Although it does work somewhat, the water doesn't bead as well as i thought it would. Using it in conjunction with good wipers, you're golden.

I just put Rain-X's brand blades on my JK and I have been very happy with them.

I am very happy with my silblades.I got the best deal on amazon for them.http://www.silblade.com/

jgarner 11-03-2008 07:16 PM

I had used Silblades on every vehicle I own and that is all I use now. They are pricey, but worth it.
