You can pick up a stock style i.e. aluminum/plastic top/bottom from any auto parts store. I just got one from Pep Boys. Spectrum I believe was the name. NAPA and others carry the same.

I replaced mine with an all metal top and bottom, costs around 150. Curious what did the Pep Boys one cost? Why would you get another one with plastic top/ bottom?

Mine was $120 with a lifetime warranty. I figured if the first one didn't start leaking until 140k miles that I should be good for a year or 2 until I upgrade to a rubicon
