Inadequate Defrosters

I have a 2003 F250 4X4 and like the truck pretty much except for a
couple of things. One of them is the poor windshield defrosting
capability. In the winter time if it's snowing or sleeting, the wiper
blades ice up, ice collects at the bottom of the windshield, and
visibility is bad or worse. Running the defrosters full blast will not
keep the ice from building up at the bottom of the windshield or on
the wiper blades.

A few years ago I had Chrysler T&C which had a defrosting system with
heating wires along the bottom of the windshield inside the glass as
is commonly done with the rear window. I am wondering if there is an
after market product that can be attacked to the inside of my truck
windshield to perform that same function. I'm looking for a way to
improve the problem before winter arrives. Does anyone else have this
problem and are there any solutions? Thanks...

Re: Inadequate Defrosters

JC Whitney sells the stick-on defrosters, but they may be a bit large for a
windshield (13" high was the narrowest). Try some of the other auto parts
sites- you might find something in a size you can use.

For the wiper problem, get winter blades. It should not build up on the
blades then.
