Keep the arms, change the rubber blade only. Rubber blades are available at any auto store, or get any wiper arm from any store and simply remove the rubber blade and install on the original arm.
Wow, i was reviewing the suggested maintenance schedule for my 2012 from Atlantic British and I was really surprised how frequently they "suggest" to change the wipers. Mine are working perfectly, but I was going to do it anyways just to keep up with the schedule. Since I'm trying to stick with OEM I was going to bite the bullet and get their 7503TSKAG kit which includes both OEM fronts, two spare clips, and OEM rear wiper. Is there any material advantage to the OEM blades? OR is the price difference simply sticker/label value?
I bought a set of those and were great for about 2weeks, now been on car for6-7 weeks and streak and chatter. They look to be a decent set maybe I need to wipe them with some vinyl conditioner and see if they improve.You can also get a kit of the same Eurospare blades from Amazon via Roverparts for roughly the same amount but within two days with Prime.

New blades arrived and in true "FFS" fashion, the passenger side was already cracked..... fortunately here in AZ it rains about once in a blue moon.
You want to have fun with those blank stares at the parts store? Next time you’re there, tell them you need a water pump for a ‘69 Volkswagen Beetle. If it’s a young kid behind the counter, it could prove worthwhile as he goes through the catalog database.Thanks for the heads up on the clips. Getting stuff to Canada is a chore but better than the blank stare at the parts suppliers.
Thank you Brad, went for this one in the end... now I'll have a spare: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01HYCWJDM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00__o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I was thinking about 3d printing a j hook adapter that just fits onto the stock wiper arm. The available wipers are terrible. I will say with the heated windscreen on and assuming the car is garaged not so bad... But the second you get any real ice/snow on the windscreen from the car sitting outside the stock wipers really don't cut it.Why does no one make a winter blade for the fronts of RR's, you know the ones with the thin rubber boot covering all the joints in the blade supports. You would think a truck designed for off road in all kinds of weather would have them as an option. With the below 0 weather here in the NE this week, my wipers become little more than a couple of 1/2" clear arcs on the glass and the rest is frozen slush and dirt because the joints on the blade all freeze up and the blade won't conform to the windshield anymore. I suppose if I wanted to change the slide to a hook style connector at the end of the arms I could use regular J hook blades, but I don't want to do that.
