cheapest place for mopar crank sensor?

Doing a bunch of work on my xj, it runs great but has 230k on it. Would like to at least replace the crankshaft position sensor with another mopar one, is 56027866AC the right part number for a 98 xj auto 4.0L? I know the old saying if its not broke dont fix it but ive read so much about them going out around 100k-150k i figured its worth it if im going to start drivng it everyday again. Would the crown automotive brand be just as good? I put the part number in ebay and found some for 55 compared to 80+ for mopar. Theres also some cheap garbage ones im assuming for 15$ lol just has the same mopar part number.

Mopar or nothing. Cheap parts are cheap for a reason. The last genuine Mopar/Jeep CPS I bought was $66 on Amazon.com. I have a spare CPS in both of my XJ's.

MOPAR Crank Sensors are not cheap anywhere you shop.

Here's an idea of what a discount looks like.

Because it is such a critical sensor, buy a genuine MOPAR crank sensor directly from Jeep.

Aftermarket crank sensors are very "hit and miss" with a lot of miss.

Worth every penny of that $75.

I've purchased a lot of parts from Mopar America because of the discount.

I'm a Chrysler retiree so I get a 25% discount from the local dealer, but comparing Mopar America prices + the shipping costs compared to my dealer costs + Michigan sales tax, Mopar America usually beats out the dealer.

I have noticed one thing. I ordered some rear axle u-bolts and it took forever to get them. When they did arrive they weren't in a Mopar package, but in some other package that showed a dealer as a customer. I think these u-bolts were aftermarket parts that were supplied to Chrysler. Some trickery here me thinks. At least Mopar America got them for me. My local Chrysler dealer parts guys are lazy and usually say they're not availble.

Another Mopar parts online store I use for researching part numbers is this store:

http://www.wholesalemopar.com/parts_...FRJBDQod4Dr6oA

With these folks, if I type in the parts catalog number it gives the new number for the superceded part number I plugged in. Then I go back to Mopar America and type in the new part number and the part shows up. Generally, if I put in the parts catalog number Mopar America will show no part listed.

I would like to know who the Tier 1 supplier is for the Mopar CPS. Chrysler/Mopar doesn't make its own sensors, correct? I put a Borg Warner on mine 5-6 years ago and it has been fine, they are readily available and O'reilly and Advance Auto have them in stock. If I had an extra $85 laying around I might order one to keep in the Jeep, but when it fails I know where to get one. Rockauto carries a Standard for around $40, I thought that was a good brand as well???

Good question, thats why i was asking about the crown automotive one, they make quality parts, they are the company i think who made a new opda for the tj's iirc. If the mopar one is so great then why do they always go out on people? I dont get it!

A part manufacturer will build you any level of quality you want to pay for. The quality of many brands of replacement parts has been steadily falling, and I expect any Mopar sensor to last as long as the original factory installed sensor. The CPS is a routine maintenance item with an average service life of 125-175,000 miles. When they no longer function they need to be replaced.

Every Crown Automotive and OmixAda part I have bought was a cheap Chinese disappointment. They either fit poorly, or failed quickly, and some did both at the same time. Cheap parts are cheap for a reason.

He's right.A lot of people buy these things now a days with 100 to 200 thousnand mile on them and a part goes wrong but don't wont to pay oem prices on the worn out part.Just a thought.

They're not brand specific. We've had them for about 5 years from what I can see. Haven't had any issues with them.
