Toyota FJ Cruiser, a retro style, mid-sized SUV, was initially introduced as a concept car but after positive consumer feedback was approved for mass production.
Owing to the fact that the vehicle is an off-road SUV, it is bound to get bugs, dirt, and grime all over its windscreen.
You, therefore, need a reliable set of wiper blades to get the job done. Defective and worn out wiper blades may fail to ensure clear visibility through your windscreen resulting in a smudged look.
And if the transport statistics are anything to go by, 23% of all automobile accidents in the U.S relate to weather conditions. So faulty wiper blades rank third among the mechanical issues for vehicle accidents.
We can never overemphasize the need for effective and efficient wiper blades.

Silicon Vs Rubber Blades
It is common knowledge that wiper blades get damaged and worn out after prolonged use. Silicone blades are an improved technology from the traditional rubber blades as they are of considerably higher quality and offer better performance.
Traditional rubber blades get worn out or deteriorate immensely under extreme weather conditions such as too hot temperatures or too cold temperatures.
They often get stiff and dry after exposure to these extremities. Environmentalists or drivers who are just conscious about the environment prefer silicone wiper blades because the silicone is biodegradable, not a petroleum-based product.
However, it is very important and worth noting that regardless of the type of wiper blades you use you will still need to replace them every 6-9 months on regular basis.
Impact of Weather Conditions
Toyota FJ cruisers are subject to a lot of ware and tare, especially from extreme weather conditions. Some of these extremities include:
Hot weather and Sunlight
The constant expansion and contraction of the wiper blades make them brittle and weak. As results cracks might start appearing.
Plenty of precipitation especially rain might cause the metal parts to rust and become weak.
When formed at the wiper joints, ice might cause uneven expansion and contraction hence leading to warping and even breakages.
Choose the right type of wiper blades that are specifically suited for the environmental conditions you will be driving in. Don’t be that driver who will be trying to clear a pile of ice and snow from his windscreen using the traditional wiper blades that are lightweight and don’t have the ability to handle a huge load of ice and snow.
