Jeep Wrangler YJ Wiper Blade Brand of Choice

What brand do you guys use for your front windshield wipers? I'm not sure which ones are best.

Pretty much as said above, we have very few options available due the size of our wipers.

I’m using these currently https://www.quadratec.com/products/55301_01.htm

I just take some headlamp wipers off a Volvo or Mercedes.
I think they are a pretty good fit.

In every wiper book i have ever looked it it claims YJ's take a 16" blade. Problem is they do not take a 16" blade they take a 12" blade. I run a 13" blade just for a little more wiping area and i wouldn't go any longer than that. I used to run cheap metal framed Anco 13" blades but last time i tried to buy some i couldn't find any. I ended up ordering a set that the guy claimed were 13" Anco's and had the same part number. When i got them they were Bosch 13" but they fit fine and i paid like $7 a piece for them.

I just ended up buying some off Quadratec that was $10.00 and they were 50% so they were like $5.00 so they will do.

Coincidentally one of my wipers just went... so I did a little research and found Silblade

Available here a little cheaper

I guess the test will be long term, thus a follow up might take a while... but the 5 year warranty gives me some piece of mind for the $

16" is for the rear wiper.
