Re: Wiper blades.

Amazon now is saying that the ANCO Contours will fit the 2011 JGC.

Re: Wiper blades.

I wonder if Bosch Icons will be made to fit the 2011. I have them on my WK and love 'em. Nice looking and work smooth.

Re: Wiper blades.

I picked up the Bosch Evolution blades at WalMart and they work extremely well. They fit the windshield perfectly and wipe way better than the OEM blades. I am happily surprised!

Re: Wiper blades.

I would think that most better blades will soon be noted as fitting 2011 WK2 as the arm attachment is the basic shepherd's hook.

Re: Wiper blades.

Also, what is the difference between Bosch Icon and Evolution blades? They both appear to be beams and about the same price?

Their Latitude beam blades are supposed to be top-notch, according to Consumer Reports.

However, users on Amazon complain among other things about plastic construction that doesn't hold up.
http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss...x=rain-x+repel
They (the latitudes) held up fine on my previous vehicle as well as my wife's JK. As soon as they're available, they're going the WK2.



Just measured mine: 20 3/4 inches on the passenger side, 21 1/2 on the drivers side.

I bought Bosch Icons for my WK2 and they work well. I got 2 21s before I realized the driver side is 22

Re: Wiper blades.

Icons and Evolutions are similar.

Re: Wiper blades.

Just installed the Rain-X latitudes. 22" on the drivers side, 21" on the passenger.

Took all of about 2 minutes, (OK, 12 minutes including the drive to the local Pep Boys) including taking out of the plastic packaging. Couldn't be easier.
