VERY impressive! The attention to detail is outstanding. Like the countersunk fasteners!Well this was a massive amount of work. I’m impressed with the rapco spray paint though. Probably the easiest I’ve ever used. Ignore the wires hanging down. Still need to hook those up.
Yes. There is a thread in the archives here somewhere. I'll see if I can find it.Has anyone ever found a conventional wiper arm that will work on these vehicles?
Thanks!Yes. There is a thread in the archives here somewhere. I'll see if I can find it.
Essentially, it's a vintage Anco or Trico wiper arm that fits right on the military wiper motor stud and a 12 inch blade that goes on that. No drilling or other mods required.

You want the Trico 33-122 "Classic" wiper blades and use them with Anco 4101 adjustable wiper arms.
Russ, I think the forum software is playing tricks on you. When I click the link for the thread I posted and scroll up, it says it's the 5-ton thread. Those are parts that I put on my 5-ton. I have not put them on my HMMWV.Well, after looking, that thread is about Humvee wipers, I think. I heard the 70's Ford Bronco arms will work, but I don't know.
I guess your setup would definitely put some sunshine on other drivers at night. For the headlight height issue, I have an idea in the works right now. My older M818 has more fender space for lights than yours, so my idea can work on my truck.Sort of, my intent was not to smoke whoever was in front of me at night. JW Speakers throw down.
I think the problem was I had not been thoroughly caffeinated when I read your response....Russ, I think the forum software is playing tricks on you.
