OK. don't laugh....
We have an 2005 EXDP that had 32" blades. I was not about to pay $80 for a pair of replacement blades. Went to Wal*Mart and got a set of 28" Rain-X premium blades for $8 each. A couple minutes each to remove the center rivet and re-insert/ream the spacer. They fit right in the existing mount with the same bolt, nut, etc. The coverage area is still plenty for my needs and these seem to last.

No, I won't laugh, I considered doing the very same thing (I think Trico makes 28" blades with the same frame as the 67-321, so it would have been practical; plus, they're distributed by Advance Auto Parts and CarQuest). But when I sat in my coach's driver's seat and thought about where the narrower wiper sweep would fall in my field of vision, I decided to hold out for the 32" blades.

The parts store ordered the wrong blade! (Big surprise).

I ordered the blades from the truck parts company noted in TIMZ's post.

They are on the way for $24 (each) cheaper then my local parts store quoted!
