Wiper Blade Suggestions

I need to replace the wiper blades on my truck. If any of you have replaced yours I would like to know what brand, size, and how well you like them. I live in the rainy pacific nw and need good wiper blades. Thanks.

I have Silblades on my truck. They have a 5 year warranty and I have had mine on for 4 years and still don't need to replace them. They are expensive though.

I have the $20 each rain-x blades (I think they're the latitudes) and I like them. They seem to last about 2 years.....

Bosch or rain-x ones for me. I had a set on my ranger for a few years. Worked way good.

my whole family runs the rain-x latitudes and they are well worth the 17$ a blade for sure

I have Rain X Latitudes, they work great. Pep Boys had them buy one get one free, so I wound up paying under $20 for the pair.
