Question Mopar Starter -vs- Duralast/AC Delco

Starter with almost 84K is going out. The dealer has to order one a week out for $140, or I can go the Auto Zone/O'Reilly route right away for $90. I don't mind paying the extra $$$$ for Mopar if it is a better unit. Years ago I went through three Duralast starters in five years on another vehicle, but the changout was a snap. Not so much with my 5.7 Hemi. Any opinions or experiences either way?

Have no clue from my own experiences, but I found this under one of the stickies at the top (Faults and Issues)
