Windshield Wiper Arms

I have a 1979 J20 and I'm looking for info on updating the wiper arms to something better than stock. Any ideas?

What are your reasons? If tension against windshield is your concern there might be too options. Maybe replace the spring with a heavier spring from your local hardware. I replaced one due to breakage, wasn't very hard. Option two is that there are little spring loaded clips made for cjs that might be able to work. Maybe someone could post a pic if that's interesting to you.
If your reason is looks, which ones do you have now? If you have the ones what are wide and painted (the paint always fades off) replace them from an older jeep with the chrome arms.

No it's not looks...it's function. I just don't remember the ones on my waggy being this bad and fragile.

If the wipers are pretty floppy/sloppy it's prolly the linkage that's worn out connecting the two arms to the wiper motor rather than the arms themselves being shot but they may also have gone south in the last 30 years or so.
