2014 WK2 Wiper Blade Sizing
 
Not sure why I am having so much difficulty with this. I want to get Bosch Icon blades for my WK2, but their website says that I need 2 21" blades. The vehicle appears to have a 22" and a 21" right now. Another car parts site is saying a 21" and an 18" is needed (yes, I am making sure it's the fronts selected). Does anyone know the defacto word on the sizing I need to purchase? :confused:

22" and 21". I've bought Icons at Advance Auto Parts, Amazon and Walmart.

Bosch Icons have the "A/B" Style and the "OE" style options. Is the Jeep the OE style? Very confusing.

I've been using "A" for both because that is what Amazon said. I do not know if there really is much, if any, difference in the curvature of the blade. than "OE" which is a new designation for them.

Just got the Bosch ICON wiper blades (22" A driver's side and 21" A passenger's side --- BTW Amazon and other source said to use "A" for both, no "B" for passenger's side like on some vehicles.

One question, the wiper blades that came with my 2014 Summit sure seems nice and premium --- does anyone here just replace the rubber blade part only and keep the rest of the wiper as it is pretty heavy duty compared to the other GC's I have had???

Sadly that whole concept went to HE double toothpicks many years ago....

Who the heck needs a whole new BLADE every time they need wipers?

I used to buy ANCO refills for just a few dollars, slipped in some new rubber and went on and on. Now these wiper companies think you need to spend 20-40 dollars every time you need new wipers. What this causes is people who can't really afford that to go much longer than they should because food is more of a priority than seeing well!
I try to find them on sale and sometimes stock up when I see a real bargain, but its pretty sad how the consumer got buffaloed by this industry......:mad:

I like the OEMs also they aren't much more than the other stuff out there.

Wow - thanks for the links. I already installed the ICON's but wish I had gotten the OEM's..... next time! You're right, about the same price as the good wiper blades made by others.
