MOPAR Parts...Any particular online site for best prices?

I want to order a few sensors -- MAPS, Crankshaft Position, camshaft sensor and a Mopar fuel filter for my 2004 WJ Overland. Any particular website for best prices online? I used a place in New Jersey a few years ago that seemed reasonable but can't remember the name of it any longer. I see some wild divergences in prices for OEM Mopar parts online.

Don't automatically assume that you local Jeep dealership is going to rape you on the price.
Now I have an in at mine cause they are also a customer of the auto parts store I work at.
So we have to take that into account.
But many times the pricing is competitive with online retailers.
Cause remember you have to pay shipping.
And even if the price is a couple dollars more might not be a bad idea to go with them anyway.
Guys at my local dealership are a great bunch of guys.
Never hurts to have a relationship with your local dealership.

There are forum sponsors like moparonlineparts.com and rockauto. They sometimes give discounts to forum members, check the vendor section.

I just got lost in thought. It was unfamiliar territory;

Different? Yup, buy on EvilBay - or elsewhere - & you can chose your brand. Buy OEM & in that very expensive Mopar box you'll find whatever they could source cheapest, from almost anywhere in the world (just like what was fitted in the factory). If you want quality, best bet is a leading manufacturer of the parts you want although, unfortunately, even that is no guarantee anymore.

I've bought a few parts off ebay, but online from sellers that are mopar dealers. Still, shady world of fake car parts so I try to buy from rockauto whenever I can.

Programmers don't die, they just lose their memory!

Stay away from Ebay, unless an US seller with name brand parts. I bought suspension parts with MOOG part numbers from overseas, but the parts were not Moog and broke down in under a year
For the crank sensor, make sure it is genuine Mopar and that it comes with the felt spacer. After market crank sensors have very weak magnets that may not be dependable.

It's not where you buy, it's who made what you buy.

I avoid RockAuto like the plague: experience has taught me they can't be trusted to send the right parts & even their biggest fans complain about them sending out every part of an order from a different warehouse/distribution centre, ramping up the shipping to seriously reduce any price advantage.

As for CPS's (& the like) Mopar don't actually make such parts, they buy them cheap from China, India, Mexico, Poland, wherever. However they will have been made to Mopar specs & probably by a reputable manufacturer, whereas some aftermarket ones may not be. Identify the brand of the OEM unit & buy from their stockist.
