    The same shit everyone else has.
    I use a 22A and 22B on my truck. The 22" blade fits in place perfectly fine of the 21" blade.

    Wax works much better than RainX, especially if you keep up with the maintenance on the wax. Shoot the windshield in quick detailer once a week or so and the wax will last a lot longer.

    Rain-X works great if you apply it correctly. A lot of people don't allow the solution to dry to a haze before buffing off. Or, they try to apply it when the temps are too hot/cold.

    I've never tried a wax. What brand do you recommend?

    Just buy the washer fluid with rain x pre mixed. It's like a buck more a gallon.

    This is exactly my experience. I had Icons and RainX Latitudes. Both worked great for a month or so. Not worth it. I'm now running the Aero's, I've had them for over 6 months and still are perfect. I do wipe my blades down and treat with silicone on occasion.

    I like Mother's Pure Carnuba wax. As for quick detailer, I use Griot's Speedshine

    Nice! Hoping I get the same results as you. I'll try the silicone trick too.

    Be sure to let it dry before letting your blades back down.

    I did this Monday evening. Advance Auto showed 22A on the drivers side and 21A on the passenger side. However if you use the push button wiper finder in the store it says 22A and 21B. Additionally, the Bosch site shows 22A and 21B. I bought 22A and 21B, these work fine.


    I use Bosch Icon's on every vehicle I own and have always had great life and service out of them. The factory blades on my Tacoma were about 1.5 years old and started falling apart.
