    What’s everyone running for wipers? Seems like it’s always hit and miss for decent blades. Has anyone found some that work well and last?

    Im currently using the Bosch Envision on my Gen1. Ive always had good luck with Bosch, I live in West Texas where the 40-50mph constant wind sand/dust and heat does a number on rubber and plastic parts. Ill usually get a year to year-and-a-half out of the wipers.

    plus one on the Bosch. I don't remember the model name but it was the best one they made. Ive had them on a few cars/trucks and never a problem

    PIAA silicone , last a long time and they don't dry out. Not a fan of the newer single beam blades .

    I picked up a set at Amazon. TRICO ULTRA # 13-220. I’m really impressed so far with them in Florida rain. After a cold fall and early winter in Maine we will see how good they really are. All in all hard to beat. They were $39.40 shipped free under a week. And best thing, Made in the USA!

    PS. I have had the ones mentioned in the other posts on my other Truck FX4, even the PIAAs. The TRCOs I think they were less costly and like I mentioned these ULTRAs are their higher quality model.
