GPR Any Difference Between Brands?

Need to get a GPR in the morning, are all GPR created equal, or is one better than the rest? Figure I'll just hit an auto parts store & see if they have any, got o be cheaper than hitting the dealership.

Re: GPR Any Difference Between Brands?

You will get a rash of people telling you that if you dont buy the staycor then your retarded...

I get the good old Napa GPR-109... They are about $30-$35 depending on what kind of discount you get at your local Napa...

I have had the one in my truck now for about 60k, and it works like a charm.

Re: GPR Any Difference Between Brands?

I wont tell you you're retarded if you don't buy the Stancor but will tell you this...

My dad owned my truck prior to me, he bought it new. For the last 5 or so years he had cold start problems, would have to plug the truck in at anything under 35 degrees. I have a receipt from Ford totalling almost $900 for new GP, GPR & UVCH and a receipt from a well known diesel repair shop for the same nearing $600. Ford used a Ford relay, the shop used a Napa.

When I got the truck I checked everything myself. It was the relay. Installed a Stancor and everything has been good for a year.

Compare the specifications and see for yourself where you should spend the money.

Id spend my money on a boss or wetern relay instead. Just as good if not better and cheaper.

Re: GPR Any Difference Between Brands?

Not that you'd be retarded.....nor developmentally disabled...However...... Juss kiddin' o' course.....

Because I live in a cooler climate, would be faced with replacing GPR every year and a half or there bouts and the last time I checked at the Dealership it was a $90.00. So ordered a Stancor about a year and 1/2 ago now and still fires right up...happy happy...joy joy... so far works for me!!!

I have used the WESTERN Plow solinoid in a couple trucks and have had nothing but good results. And it was only $12

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seat for OBS. PM me if any known

I went with the Stancor because it is rated @ 200 amp continuous where as the Western was rated at 150 amps. Not sure about the Boss as I was never able to find the specs.

Re: GPR Any Difference Between Brands?

Where is everyone getting the Stancor or Western? My last NAPA GPR-109 didn't last very long, so I went with an MR99 from Autozone about 4 yrs and 40k miles ago, it just quit working so I am looking for alternatives.
