OEM or after market seals?

I have a 1991 Jeep Wrangler Renegagde, 6 cyl, 5 speed, a/c, hard top.
I was wondering if oil seals, like transfer case rear outlet to rear drive shaft, front axle seals are different quality between OEM and after market??
I know for a fact that after market fuel tanks, hard top to body weather strips, windshield fold, rubber strip are really different. They all have gave me nothing but trouble. All information is appreciated.

There is cheep and there are good ones out there....
1.50 seal might let you down....
8.00 seal should be a better one to install...
Just my 2 cents

If it's 1991 and they've lasted this long go with what you already know -
the OE's lasted 24 years. Question answered.

I don't see a problem using the seals in your FelPro or Victor Gasket set

Just use a good brand name was my point.... Mopar, National, CR, Just not the PartsMaster type... Very Cheap and Made Cheep.
