Exclamation wiper range of motion

does anyone's wiper not wipe completely on the driverside. I just recieved a 92 YJ for free and drove through a winter storm with wipers that don't wipe completely. Anyone know how to adjust the range of motion so my wipers actually wipe the whole windshield??

Mine don't wipe completely. I can still see out of what they wipe though. I always thought that's how they were suppose to be because the wipers are so short.

None

None of the YJs do. Check this; RipTech Engineering: 1987 - 1995 Jeep® YJ - Basic Wiper Upgrade Kits
I put them on my 93, and worked great.

Think that is bad my 49 has a manual wiper and that is how it came from the factory..lol
Try changing gears, steering and turning a knob back and forth to wipe your window in a rain or snow storm.
