agree Jim why make the trip if some one is willing to drop the exact ones you want on your front porch with free shipping, so you can drive down town discover they don't have the ones you want and then drive across town trying to find them LOL

Same here. My passenger side wiper rests about 1/2 inch from the rubber thing along the bottom edge and slightly up the side of the windshield. I suspect a packaging error.

For the price and convenience most efficient to just order it on Amazon. Hard to go to the store for under $3 in gas and of course my time and traffic.

I can absolutely guarantee you that mine are 22" driver's and 18" passengers. I measured three times.....the 21" installed went a good half inch beyond the glass. The existing wiper is 18" and fits perfect. I even measured the 21" new one to see if by chance it was a 22" in the 21" box...nope, it was 21". The 22" new one was 22" and replaced the old 22". All confirmed by measuring.

A head scratcher how anyone else got 21" to fit......

Oh....and Amazon is so great, they refunded me for the 21" and I don't even have to send it back.......they said keep it, it is on us (that means too expensive to bother to ship back on their dime).

After reading this thread I come to one conclusion. There is something wrong with your Jeep. You should have kept the wipers and found a Jeep that fit.

Seriously, I wonder if your Jeep has the wrong wiper arm on the right side? That's the only thing I could think of that would make it a standout, when everybody else has no problem with the 21"

That is exactly what I was thinking too....perhaps the wrong wiper arm was installed on the passenger's side.... It is DEFINITELY 18" that came with my GC....I have triple measured and have the original. See photo...this is the 18" original and there is no more than an inch clearance so 21" overlaps beyond the glass by a bit more than 1/2". Will bring it up at dealership.

Re: Wiper Sizes - READ THIS BEFORE ORDERING...

It really is 22/21 according to Bosch, Silblade, Trico.
Got a tape measure?

For the rear, I used to use a slightly longer blade and just cut the rubber slightly so it didn't hit anything. Got better coverage that way.

I'd suggest a local parts store and a tape measure next time. Although those Bosch Icons are nice.

Re: Wiper Sizes - READ THIS BEFORE ORDERING...

Trico not available locally?!?
Heck, you can get those at the nearest fast food joint, not to mention Tarjay, Walmart, King Stoopid, etc.

Silblade maybe for those who want color matched wipers, but Trico?

...something is wrong with mine as it came with 18" (trust me, I measured three time) and only 18" will fit for passenger's side. Perhaps the wrong wiper arm was installed at the factory and they just used substituted a difference size wiper blade to make it work instead of really addressing the issue. I will know more after a visit to the dealership.

Measure from the pivot for the wiper arm to the end of the latch for the blade and post.

Hopefully a good reader with the same vehicle can provide theirs in case you have a non-standard arm or something else weird on the passenger side.

Uneven gap below the wiper blade on the passenger compared to the driver?

I did measure.... Driver's side is 16" (uses 22" wiper blade) and Passenger's side is 20" (uses 18" wiper blade)

Can someone measure their wiper arms to solve this mystery please....

I have a 2012. The driver's side wiper arm is 16", the passenger side is 20". I just replaced my blades and still have the old ones. They measure 22" & 21". That probably didn't help you, but I did trudge out in the middle of a snow storm to get those measurements
