Yes!!!! my new wiper switch came today via UPS. It will give the ability to not only vary my wipers, but it is set up for a wiper bottle with an electric motor. Stay tuned for an update after the installation. I am hoping to get it done this weekend and certainly before the next rain bounce

Nice! Definately update us. I just received new wiper arms and rebuilt my whole wiper system due to the rain.

My wiper bottle is missing and I am still working on my spare tire. So the wiper bottle wouldn't work even if I did have one.

I was driving behind some trucks on 80 last week and they were dropping snow and sand and it was sticking to my windsheild and I was thinking I needed to look into getting the washer hooked up.

Intermittent wipers are a must, did you get the switch from Summit?

and here is the article for installation

My wiring will be different as I am running a single speed motor Mad

You can charge the wiper bottle with any air pump. No tire needed. You'll just have to re-pressurize it manually once in a while.

So????? you never reported back... did it fit? Does it work? I looked at the link and it does not say anything about it being intermittent???

Tell us... I like the idea of just replacing the existing switch.. other wise, I am going to buy the JC Whitney one that is an add on for 20 bucks.

I bet any modern windshield washer bottle with an electric pump should, Killroys time.
