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.

I think my YJ would not look like a YJ anymore if I changed it that's why I still love my tails light only gonna switch the housing to LED , stupid circle lights don't look good to me plus u gotta buy the back half fender to made for newer fancy jeeps not for old trusty jeeps

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!
