I guess it's the spring on the wiper arm, but man I hate replacing my wiper blades every couple of months. Anybody know of a brand or even a modification to remedy this? Does anyone else have the same problem?

You're having to replace them every couple of months???? Are they deteriorating because of acid rain?

Best wiper blades on the planet.

I had them on my K-5 for 12 years with no problems and on my Durango for 6 years. I have them on order for my Jeep.

$44 + shipping for wiper blades for my Jeep? Yowsa! Are you sure they're worth it and that they wipe as well at 10-12 years old as they did when they were new?? ???

Well they only guarantee them for 5 years...they claim it's unconditional too. Might not be a bad deal. $15 a pop once a year comes to $75 over 5 years....

Wow, I thought it was because my Jeep's windshield is pitted from rock hits was the reason why I am going through wipers like you are. Kinda like a cheese grater effect.

GOOD Wrangler sized wiper blades are NOT easy to find!

I have to replace mine about every 2-3 months. I'm gonna look into these!
