Wipers

I was wondering if anyone on the forum has changed their wipers from frames to frameless? I was thinking about it for a while since the blades leave behind multiple streaks.

Re: Wipers

I have! I swapped out the OEM blades for Bosch Evolution wipers about 3 months ago. Very happy with them so far.

Re: Wipers

I've had great luck with Bosch Icon wipers (on other vehicles). I can't speak highly enough about them - although the stock wipers on my GC seem to work file. Then again, I haven't had it in rain yet.

Re: Wipers

what are our wiper sizes? I tried looking online on the mopar store, but they wouldn't give dimensions...

I use the Bosch Icon wipers om my WK and love them.

The WK2 I think I read on here some time ago takes 22" driver side and 21" passenger side.

Ditto. Also go by the name Anco Profile. Easy fit.

I've driven in rain every week since I took delivery April 22 and have not yet seen any streaks. Maybe our rainwater is cleaner than yours?

Re: Wipers

I switched out for Bosch Evolution... they have been relatively streaky so far. Even replaced the driver one after just a couple months... new one is still streaky.

+1

When my OEM wipers go, I'll be replacing them with Bosch Icons.

Hmmm...have not experienced any streakiness with the Bosch Evolution blades to date. I do have my windshield coated with Rain-X though...
