Best replacement fan clutch?

Did some searching and didn't find an answer. What's the best replacement fan clutch? Autozone and advanced only list one "heavy duty" type. Is OE better?

My jeep has been sitting for about 2 hours and the fan seems a little harder to turn than what it felt like when it was hotter. Haha of course it would. I'm only looking at getting a new one because it sounds like its engaged all the time. Plus it's cheap enough and easy enough to change. Anyone know the normal lifespan for the stock fan clutch?

One that has been stored in a vertical position is the best one to get (according to why I've read) our fan clutches have silicone in them and if stored improperly will run out and ruin them.

I read that. I can imagine the look I'll get when I ask the local stores how they store the clutches. Haha
