Default Wiper Blades
What wiper blades is everyone getting and do you like them? I bought rain x latitude blades. They work great except on the freeway. Speeds up in the 70s the drive side lower half lifts all the way off the windscreen! and when not in use they shake dramatically. Poor design rain x.

Don't get the Rain-X ones. They suck. I go for the Bosch Icon's as well.

I got reflex wiper blades for my ranger, I don't think they sell them in the states though. So far they've been great. Low profile, wind does nothing to them. And they're curved so much when no pressure is on em, that they hug the windshield damn good.
I just dump rain-x liquid in with the washer fluid. It's great stuff.

I will wait until the stockers are worn out before I will replace mine.
