Replacing the rear main seal on my 86 CJ7 Omix or Crown?

Any difference, one better than the other? Or which brand would you recommend. I was looking at Quadratec and there is a $7 difference between the 2.
Thanks in advance.

Neither.

Buy a quality brand, like Fel-Pro, and avoid anything with the Crown or Omix brand.

That's my opinion.

Start shopping your local auto parts store. That kind of stuff isn't specialty unobtanium only on the internet type stuff.

2nd on Felpro, Crown and Omix are typically Junk, use them only when you have no choice, and never on your motor.

The improved double lip style Fel-Pro is 10 bucks on Rock Auto.

The Omix is 22 bucks at Quadtratec.

No question which one I would use.

Absolutely. The AMC 258CID or 4.2L engine is VERY common and those parts can be found easily with choices of quality manufacturers available.

You won't have to wait, too.

Learn who made what. AMC (Just Employ Everybody's Parts) outsourced just about everything from ignition systems, electrical systems, steering columns, etc.

I'd rather be lost on the trails than found at home!
