prolly both,
Quite normal to have a significant price difference between different manufactures. I usually by a brand I trust, or just go with a the pricier units in the range.
As to "looking right" if you have the right model and year it should be right they are very good.
Only guys that realy have to watch it is the '96 boys, they have OBD2 jeeps, And some '96's have obd2 plugs and other '96's have OBD1 connectors for CPS sensors for sure and maybe other sensors as well.

If you have your part number you can also do a part number search on the rock auto web site.

Pricing is normally indicative of build quality.

Googling the manufacturer will get you an insight into their possible manufacturing abilities and quality control .... and complaints about their products on other forums.

e.g. Hayden products are a SMP line .... SMP also has up to three variants/prices of the same part .... as displayed in the "more info" window.

As rainman suggested ..... mid to high prices .... should get a quality part ... and I would expect the cheapest items to be repackaged chinese knockoffs .... rather than U.S. / ISO rated chinese made stuff.

Pulled the rear passenger axle from the D44 (at least its easy with no need to remove the diff hat ) and replaced the bearing and seal, the seal was leaking a bit. Next is the pinion seal, damn that Jambo Mud and the week befores drowning at Lake Lyell

Cheers
