Omix = Rugged Ridge, for what it's worth. I think your original part number is a Crown product, though. In general, I'd prefer Omix/Rugged Ridge over Crown, but the margin is slim compared to OEM.
What I might do is refurbish what I have - sand down, paint, new bushings if I can find them, etc. I bought a new Omix clutch release rod a few years back and have been happy with it, the rest may still be usable.
