It looks like your blades bolt onto the arm. Is that right?

Mine are a J hook. Wonder if those would fit mine. Do you still have a part number from Napa?

Ours are not J-Hooks ...

The part number is 60-3256 - which is also shown in the photograph - that was the top part of the package.
I would recommend stopping in at the local Napa dealer and looking through the Parts catalog for the J-Hook version.

Spider... We hope to see you with the group at QZ!

I still don't see the logic in buying a pair of full wiper blades for $75 - $100 a pair when refills should be obtainable for less than $20 a pair ! .... sigh .... but I have been unable to find any refills for 32" heavy duty blades such as the NAPA part recently pictured.

The Napa Parts Guy said that refills are not available for the larger size blades...he has never seen them.

Has anyone checked at one of those "truck stop" stores for the refills?

I tried a few weeks ago to get new wiper refills or blades for my 2001 Dynasty with 32" blades. I tried truck stops and had no success with the refills or full blades. I learned that most Trucks do not use 32" blades. I ended up at CW paid $35 each and they would not fit the bolt on arms my unit has.
I finally went to Walmart and bought 28" Michelin Blades for $7.95, the clip was removable on them and they then just bolted right on. I believe they are the same arms as MM pictured in her post. The blades are wide enough but they are not as Heavy Duty as the OEM units. I have used them in 3-4 rains and they work fine, at a great price. I do loose a small amount of windshield coverage but it not a problem. I might even buy a couple of spares.
Not all the Walmarts carry the 28" models you may have to search a bit. BTW only the Michelins, not the RainX work although both come in the 28" size. The prices also seem to vary.

Our OEM blades lasted 3 years with no problems and these new blades are much thicker- I don't mind paying $23 per year for good blades - and I am thinking these blades may last longer than 3 years...so it could work out even less than that...

Hey Mama,
You don't have to have the super blades anymore your not in Oregon. I lucked out at a CW in Washington last September they had the 32" blade on sale two for the price of one. So 35 dollars for two.

Good Answer, Dave! ...actually - we still get plenty of rain in No.CA region - but my problem is the CWs in this area are taking the same attitude as you - they aren't carrying the blades!
