Thanks buddy! You're what makes this forum sooo very great!!!

The mystery deepens why I have 18" blade on passenger's side that came with the new GC and a 21" doesn't fit........ very odd indeed.

Dan, don't feel bad that yours is short. I'm sure you have many other likable qualities.

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

^^^ No problem....it's what you do with the 18" that counts! LOL

It really is a mystery though..... Anyone else wanna measure their wiper arms from pivot to end on both the driver's and the passenger's sides and post it?

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

Maybe it's a problem in passenger sizing with the brand wiper you bought.

Thanks for the input, but my GC came from the factory with a 18" wiper blade AND only an 18" wiper blade will fit as the 21" extends beyond the glass even with a different brand... So the brand isn't the issue. I'll need to compare a GC side by side to figure this one out....very odd.

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

My 2011 Overland is spec'd at 21/22. I like to use 22/23 as they cover more of the windshield without touching the edges.

After suffering through a couple pairs of streaking Icons and based on recommendations here, I switched to Valeo 600's. No streaks, no errors... seem to work much better than the icons. Amazon was one of the few places I found Valeos.

I think it may be time to visit a used jeep lot and take a couple samples, unless you have a highly clueful tech available. Or take a look at a junker close up.

I'd expect the swept arc of the passenger side to be undersized...

Certain Japanese cars [Datsun, Mazda] during at least the 70's were infamous for installing whatever parts [including transmissions!] were available if stock got low as long as it would fit.

Never heard of it on a modern merkin car though.
