    The motor is off a 70's I think Land Rover and just a 12" or 14" blade from NAPA.
    Whole or skim milk? Chocolate chip or sprinkles? Lol

    I have so much tint on my back windows I can hardly see out of them in the daylight. Not sure what it's like to actually use my rear window when I plow, must be nice!

    My rear window never really gets enough on it to require a wiper, but neat idea.

    I agree. I never use my rear window. To lazy to turn around. I just use mirrors

    I use my rear window a lot and I have thought about this but I would magnetic mount it to the roof. I couldn't get the drill out and drill into the roof. Atleast not on my personal truck. Maybe a crown vic I was putting a lightbar or something.

    Awesome idea. We don't run sanders or anything in our boxes so I use the rear window all the time. When the neck gets sore I'll use the mirrors. During our little blizzard in December I would have paid a $1000 bucks for that little wiper. The wind was blowing so hard it covered the mirrors and rear window in like a minute. Had to get out and scrape all the time. I have always thought about a wiper but just never did it. Kudos to you for getting it done. I think I'll try to get a motor from Jcwhitney or something and do the same.

    Thanks for posting, you have inspired me.

    That picture has to be off a Chevy cause Ford dosen't offer a rear defrost. If you have a defrost why would you need the wiper...really

    Otherwise pretty cool, I guess.

    I guess I'll disconnect the front wipers since I have defrost up there. :salute:

    I wouldn't need it every storm but when the wind, snow and temps are just right I would def. use it. Even with defrost, staring through water drops isn't much better then snow or ice.

    Sure they do, My 2005 Lariat has rear defrost wires, on the same switch as the heated mirrors.

    In my experience, the flat rear window on pick em up's picks up a lot less snow and crap then rounded ones like my tahoe. Either way my rear windshield wiper does even work because I module inside the motor is out and I am still having trouble getting myself to pay as much as they want for it. Both I think are very clever, I commend you BLMC for having the balls to drill through your cab, and I really hope it works. I personally don't think I could stomach it. Although I like that aftermarket design, the one of the things to that comes to mind is flex, it would seem to have no effect, but I've been proven wrong many times before.

    He has lights drilled into his cab also, so what is another hole? Not something I would do but it works for him!

    Thanks guys. I knew this would get a rise and some kicks outta a few of ya. People around here about crap themselves when they see it too.

    That's exactly what we have them on for, when it's blowing snow or wet snow that sticks to everything. It works great for that. I don't use it all nite long, just flip it in when I need I clear spot. JCWhitney is where we have bought them lately.

    It is a Chevy, but we have them on our Fords and Dodges we had. I put the defrost in myself aftermarket. The wiper was already installed though, but as stated it does help get all the water off the window to see clearer....hey I live by seeing out my window.

    It's only one little 3/8" hole:) But some back windows are curved a bit so we just get a flexed blade so I gets everything pretty clean. We've sold trucks after 14 years w/ the original motor in them so we've never had a problem burning them up.

    No holes anywhere else in the cab. Oops, except for the antennae for our 2way radios. Those backup lights are on a bar.
