They CAN'T be SERIOUS!

The Jeep dealer wants $99 for a FLASHER???

Why, because it has the little bracket?

No thanks - I'll get the $18 one from NAPA and duct tape it in before I'll pay that kind of money.

I'd pay up to $99, but it depends on what she looks like.

Someone once told me the dealers make most of there profit from parts and service. I can believe that, $99 for a flasher. Probably a $20 part if the true cost was known. Have you tried a junk yard?

I had the same situation with a simple U-joint, They wanted $90 just for the joint and another $120 to install it. Got one at the parts store for $13 and put it in myself.

Never checked my tj flasher, but is it the same as all the other little flashers out ther? If so, why would you even check a dealer price, they are under $10 at any auto parts store.
