    Hands down the best modification that I have done was adding Bosch Icon wipers! These wipers clear mud grime rain anything with no problems. Best $38 I have spent on my Taco!

    Up until this set, I've been the type of guy who thinks "im going to go buy the $8" set and this last set of $8 wipers lasted 2 weeks before parts started flying off... best case scenario they last 2 months before streaking. My buddy, the local mechanic said "Bosch!" I said "No!" finally did it and will never look back. My .02 for the day, chew on it!

    Awesome!

    I could probably stand to get some new wipers on the Taco as well as toss some on the TJ. I may have to check these out.

    I went on their website and it looks like they have one for the right side wiper (Part number: 21B), and one for the left side wiper (part number 22A). Is this correct, because I was just thinking about new wipers yesterday.

    I have used them, but I prefer the Michelin blades to be honest.

    I had better luck with the standard Bosch's. The icons I had fluttered as the wiped the glass, they also didn't last very long unfortunately.

    Had those for 4 months and tossed them. Didn't work for me. Horrible cleaning, and the florida sun bleached them fast. Looked like $hit.

    As is with everything, this is a personal preference. For me these have worked best. as for fluttering when wiping, they have not done this at all. The guide book at walmart said 21a for passenger side and 22a for driver side

    I had Bosch, 2x. Horrible streaking.
    I've ran just about every brand out there, but OEM seems to be best, IMO.
