    Default Aftermarket parts?

    I may have a connection that can get cheap aftermarket remote keyless entry fobs.

    Here's a question for everyone. When it comes to getting something like this, are you interested in going to the dealer to pay big bucks to get something that's OEM, or would you get something that's aftermarket that's designed to OEM specs and about 1/4 of the price?

    Personally, I have bought a replacement remote key fob on eBay that I'm sure is aftermarket, but I only paid $20 for it instead of $80 at the dealer. It works fine and I've not had any issues with it.

    78 Chevy Suburban Silverado (454, 3/4 ton)

    I bought a used one off E-Bay, from a reputable dealer. Never had any problems either. My point would be if its cheaper and does the same thing...I'm all for it.

    I've done the ebay thing twice now. They come with instructions (which are easy enough to find anyway).
