I think you'd get that with adding to either of the front ones.

But 20" rear? I think I've spotted my next mod, lol

just throwing it out there.

i guess it would only really apply to those who live in either really dusty or perhaps area w/ snow, but the only thing i could see possibly becoming an issue is not having enough pressure on the wiper blade to cut through the gunk/snow, etc.

a 20" blade is 25% longer than a 16", you're effectively reducing the amount of pressure per inch of the blade by that much.

how this translates to real world performance difference, i dunno. wiper blade brand and type would probably make a bigger difference anyways. there is also more surface area for the blade to catch if you use them at higher speeds, though, likely unaffected at any legal speed limits.

for those who seldom use it, or just for rain applications, i don't see why not.

20 is well within spec, I suspect you could go all the way up to 22' if you wanted to wipe out past the clear glass and onto the blacked out area, you might get some aero lifting at speed though.
The front pass. is 20.5 ish...If I remember, I'll pop them out at lunch to see what that would look like.

Edit: http://imgur.com/a/3ok272z

The Passenger front blade 100% works. not sure yet about noise, vibration at highway speeds, but i ran it up to 60mph without noticing anything... If you use the top section of glass to see out of, I highly recommend this "mod" of running a larger wiper blade...

Going to order a new passenger blade and some refills soon, lol.

What the hell is this thing? Some broken baller wheel? Or an old typewriter of sorts?

the OE 16" already doesn't cut through snow and gunk, so \_(ツ)_/

I've never understood why we'd need a wiper on the roof.

Eh I don't get why it's there other than Big Wiper. But untill I get around to deleting it, it's going to accomplish more than that little dinosaur arm wipe.
