I need to replace the one I have in a 1998 manual. I'm searching in RockAuto and have several options from RhinoPac, Brute Force, Dorman and Omix Ada. The prices are $86,$141,$147 and $214.

By the pictures and code numbers all are equivalent but there are 2 1/2 times of difference in the price between the cheaper and the most expensive. I'm missing something, the quality of RhinoPac is garbage, Omix is overvaluated, all of them?

I would look into getting one local and with the best warranty and price. That way WHEN it goes out again you can quickly exchange it for another. I put 2-3 on my wrangler over the years and they all came from different suppliers, I'd venture to say they could have been manufactured by the same company and branded.

just like there only 3 battery manufactures in the U.S., but they put there sears, walmart, napa, carquest, lables on them.

The only supplier I can speak from experience is Dorman. Never used their clutch products, but other stuff made by them seems to be quality. If I wanted to go with the high $ part, that is the one I would pick.

Are there any reviews on the rhino-pac?

Hopefully someone with real world experience can chime in.

our shop buys Dorman products everyday, good product & sometimes the only one's that make them unless you want to go to the dealer.

Thanks for the answers. I guess I will try a change to RhinoPac and keep my current as spare (was fixed but I don't know how long it will last).
