The metal arm of the regulator would actually flex. The regulators from the dealer are much more expensive.
You can hold the two side by side and tell a significant difference in strength.
10-4 on the Jeep part. I will compare costs and if it's only $20 or so, I will go with the OEM. However, its starting to look like Chrysler didn't give much thought to the quality of their Jeep parts outside of engines, suspensions, trannys, etc...Which is good for us, but expensive when you start restoring older vehicles. Those components are top notch and Jeep is legendary for using strong parts in those areas but I am a little disappointed in everything else I am reading about on here. I guess that is why I loved my YJ, TJ, JK's so much; no fluff to fool around with, just a body sitting on top of a strong frame and suspension.
