Need new alternator
 
My alternator in my '06 is whining after just 61k miles. I'm looking at Napa and O'Reily's as well as RockAuto and am curious what everyone recommends for a replacement. I won't keep the Jeep long enough to justify the Bosch price ($270 + $90 core).

My mechanic orders parts from Napa. But I know I can get something better priced from RockAuto.

EDIT: (Removed prices)

I've heard to stay away from re-manufactured ones. So that leaves RockAuto or an OEM part from the dealer. I'll just assume the dealer's is around $250...

RockAuto:
1) $180 + no core fee (USA Industries)
2) $105 + $70 core (Remy)
3) $201 + no core fee (OE Manufacturer-Denso)

l would do some review research on rockauto before getting anything from them, there service is hit or miss, at the very best

Rockauto's service has been very good for me.. FWIW..

I'd probably get the Denso.

I went with the new Remy. Here mid-week hopefully. Rock Auto's been speedy with parts in the past. Of course, after I ordered it I opened the hood and saw "Denso" on the alternator branding...oops!

Dealer quoted me $550 including labor for the work.

Local mechanic quoted me .7 hours @ $90/hour.

Take a guess who's doing the job...

Never personally had a problem with rock auto, nor have I heard of any issues before. Obviously I have not heard everything in the world, just saying they have been great for me.
