Crankshaft position sensor prices

Saturday night my 98' Cherokee(220,000mi) wouldn't start, got a po320 code, after surfing the forum, found all the signs of a bad Crankshaft. Sensor... Also found a bunch of horror stories about aftermarket sensors, so as my local Jeep Dealership's parts dept. is closed on Sunday- I priced around the aftermarket, and found the sensor at $88 bucks or so..
On Monday I called Jeep, I was expecting three digits: but the sensor was $75!! I couldn't believe it! The Mopar part was $13 cheaper than the crappy sensor at PepBoys!
I just threw it in and the jeeps running again.... I guess I'll be checking the dealer more often...

i work at a parts store and i have noticed that factory parts from the dealer are about the same or less then aftermarket.

i know people are scared of the dealer prices but thats only if they do the work.

I got mine even cheaper from Kolak. It was around 65 IIRC. Mopar sensor as well. The only way to go really. Anything else is junk that won't last more than 3-4 years.

So true! I learned my lesson with a Throttle position sensor I picked up at Advanced Auto for $55 in January... I'm on my 4th sensor! They come with a lifetime warranty, the best I've got was 3mo. on one of them.. I just change it right in the parking lot when it goes... Forget it I'm always going with the dealer for sensors from now on...
