Need "REAL" JEEP OEM Replacement Parts

I have a 1995 Jeep Wrangler 4.0 L with hard top (completely stock) and it's time to change the radiator hoses and heater hoses and serpentine belt. I want to replace these parts with "Real" Jeep OEM factory parts. I see a lot of online sites claiming to sell factory MOPAR and JEEP parts. Which ones actually do sell Original Equipment Quality? Anybody have any recommendations for a good place to try? One site I found called "mymoparparts.com" seems to have everything I need, do they actually sell real MOPAR/JEEP parts? The real mopar site only sells parts back to the 2001 model year.

Paul

You do realize Mopar doesn't make those parts, they source them from companies you can buy direct from and slap their name on it.

Just buy Gates hoses and belt and be done with it.

If you are restoring for a show vehicle, OEM marked parts are important.

For a mudder or DD, just get Gates and save 50% on price.

That's a real thing with YJ's?

??? WHY ??? ... It's just generic stuff, hoses and belts. Virtually no one other than a dealer uses factory versions of those parts. And as was said, Mopar doesn't even 'make' hose or belts.

I was anal like that back in '84 when I bought a brand new Mercedes 300D, my first ever foreign car. I used to go to the dealer for everything, for the first year anyway. After year 1, I always used good 'auto parts store' parts, for the next 25 years! I sold the car in 2010, running fine.

look, we don't know why he wants factory stamped/labeled parts. If he wants to keep it factory, he'll want those labeled hoses and belt. Call the stealerships. Many of them have parts in stock. That way, you can show receipts that you bought them from the manufacturer if there is ever a question.

A 95 YJ is not a 57 chevy. That said, in 1975 I doubt that anyone driving a 57 chevy was using factory parts for belts and hoses; however, those that did keep everything original have more intrinsic value today.

I have been working on Jeeps for 30 years now (CJ5, CJ7, YJ and Liberty) and I have always found that the factory parts are better and last longer...especially hoses and belts. I didn't really believe that these sites sell the same quality as you get from the factory. I just wanted to be sure. My old YJ is not a show vehicle nor is it a mudder...it's just a good friend that gets me where I want to go...anywhere.

I've been using Rock Auto for replacement stock parts. They usually have a selection of makers. So far so good for me.

I have had problems with aftermarket parts. Power steering lines especially. After a month they start leaking. Luckily I work at a jeep dealership so I buy everything there using my employee discount but even that sometimes certain parts can still be very expensive. I would say important parts like sensors and brake hoses and such I would stick with factory.

just make sure you get a good aftermarket such as gates for hoses and goodyear or gates for a belt. with these brands you are getting at or above oem quality for half the price. if you need and suspension or steering components get moog. much better then oem and have features like relocated grease zerks for easy greasing. for front hubs timken is the only way to go.

To each his own in this case, but you're buying rebranded parts that you could be getting cheaper.
