My F450 takes 20” wiper blades and I’ve bought them from Amazon before. For the last month, the 20A model has been regularly dropping to $9 a blade. Several times a day it goes from around $17 down to $9 then back again. I just keep it in my cart in the “saved for later” section. I also keep the 20B, 24A, &18B but the price just changed by a couple cents.

Take advantage if you need a great 20” wiper blade

What's the difference between the 20a and b? I actually do need 20" wipers.

Perhaps the connector is different in this application, but the usual difference in A and B versions is the amount of curve built into the blade. Think how one blade sweeps the flatter center part of the windshield versus the other blade sweeping the outer third of the windshield - which is typically more curved than the center part.

Correct...the connector is the same. Bosch says A is for driver side and B is passenger. They’re the only company that I’ve seen do this so the A is probably fine for your app. My Econoline windshield isn’t that curved so next change I will run 2 A’s

you can use the honey extension to monitor prices on amazon.

I do it, my first item was an office chair that dropped 30 bucks in a week.
