Yea the sill blades look nice but I about choked when I saw the price but all the money I have spent 20 here and there for blades atleast 3 sets a year this seams the cheaper route just more expensive up front
I bought some Triple Edge blades and they have a lifetime warranty. www.thewiperstore.com I bought them like 10 years ago and they usually last about 2-3 years. Then I call up the company and let them know they are worn out and they send me new ones. Best money I have spent. All my cars have them.

Bringing up an old thread, 'cuz I've been looking for new wiper options. I currently have PIAA Wiper Blades. They are OK, but nothing to write home about. I will have had them for a year in September. They squeak and some times skip, mostly when it's a light rain or drizzle. I paid around $14 each, with wasn't so bad, I thought. I was just checking into Silblades. 5 year warranty compared to 1 year on PIAAs. They cost $25 from Slilade's website, but Amazon has them for our TJs for $8.72 ea. That's not bad. I know, or rather read, that TripleEdge blades are Life Time warranty. I've had them on many vehicles over the years, as they were my standard go-to blades. Just average in terms of function and longevity, and they never lasted more than a year for me. I usually put winter blades on for winter, so really didn't even get a year out of them. Wasn't worth my hassle of warranty exchange for saving just a few bucks...and usually when I needed a blade, I needed it right away.
Think I will give the Silblades a go. Not quite ready to ditch my PIAA blades yet, but fall/winter is fast approaching, and I want to be prepared.
Also, I've used Rain-X for years on different vehicles. Used it on my Jeep at first, but it seemed the flat windshield wasn't as easy for water to clear from. I switched over to Invisible Glass and have been very pleased with it. Bug juice cleans off very easy, too.
The longest lasting wiper blades I've ever owned (in 48 years of driving) are Silblades which are most easily found on the Internet. Just don't buy from Silblade directly as I did, you'll pay a lot more than what all their online dealers charge. I forget their warranty but it's really long... like 10 years or lifetime.

i'm one of those that usually buy them when needed but i have noticed that alot of the auto parts stores around by me MAY carry 1 brand of 13" blades if i'm lucky(and only have 1 or 2 sets on the display). the ones on there came with the jeep and are close to a yr old(with me-who knows how long they've been on there) and so far they seem to be doing fine. the only nice part-i have an advanced auto kitty corner and a o'rielys across the street-between the 2 i can usually find what i need.
Ordered me a set of silblades off amazon yesterday. It rains far too much here to be messing around and you find in the 13 inch are cheapies that streak and chatter. We'll see how these do. Paid 13 a piece so if they last the 9 month winter here I'm golden!
