I was looking on ebay at random things and found a kit that makes them lay flat. Have a look on there, they were called " Wipeboy Basic Wiper Upgrade for Jeep"

Was at a stoplight looking at TJ and noticed they have different wiper arms and they set at the bottom of the windshield when not in use. Maybe an upgrade I haven't looked at any parts yet but look around and check it out not at all like the YJ.

Technically the headlights aren't square they're rectangular, but I see your point.

Nice thing about the stock wipers on a YJ is that in the winter, they don't get iced to the bottom of the windshield when there is a lot of snow & ice packed under the blades...hated that in my wife's TJ, and now her JK...never have that in my YJ's or when I had my CJ...YJ and CJs have the same style set-up...good jeep heritage in my opinion...haha!

My window wipers still freeze to the windshield. Not as bad as any other vehicle but they do still freeze.

Yeah I lived in Chicago for a number of years so I know exactly what you mean. I do miss the 50 and 60 degree fall weather, but it will be here in February ;-) .
