what brand belt to buy?

ok, I replaced the belts(both power assist and alternator) about a month ago with the $4.90 "cheap belts" that you get at Kragen's. The "new" belts are already screeching. The older ones lasted at-least 5 years. What brand belts do you guys recommend? Any thing on ebay?
1989 Jeep Wrangler YJ (Sahara), 5 Speed manual, 4.2 Inline. 4.5 inch rough country lift with 33 inch tires.
214K miles and counting.
