The ANCO Contour C22UB will work on both sides.

upon closer look, stock GC wipers are exact as my Tacoma's probably made by same company too since they are absolutely identical

therefore here's the right parts for those that want Bosch Icons
drivers side: 422A passenger: 421A

:thumbsup:

Why replace the stock wipers? The bosh ones noticeably better?

stock are too "skinny" for my taste,
they do hug the windshield better, as well as the wiper insert looks like it has a better design.
never had issues with them for the last 5+years i've been using them on other cars.
only thing i wouldn't recommend them for is people that get heavy snow. they do lack in the heavy snow department, other than that better than stock in every single aspect.

ps: pretty much any late model euro car and high end japanese, is equipped from the factory with same type of design wipers as the bosch icons.

Yes they are. Odds are is that the OEM wipers are going to last a year while Bosh is going to last 2-4 years

I just installed a set of Bosch wipers on my 2011 GC The 421A/422A fit perfect.

6 months to a year is the norm considering, I'll stick with the ANCO Contour C22UB & C21UB. They've worked extremely well for me.

The wipers on my zj lasted about 3 years..... then I sold the truck. Longevity differs from user to user but with me, Bosch wipers always last a long time.

I normally use Bosch wipers.

I replace them every 6 months. Never gotten that much out of them before they no longer wipe the windshield to my satisfaction.

You replace the Icons every 6 months? I've gotten much better wear out of them than that.
